Appointment & consultation

After making an appointment for an osteopathic treatment by telephone or online, you will receive a digital questionnaire. By completing this questionnaire, osteopath Marie-Jeanne Nijdam can prepare herself for your appointment.
During the first consultation, you will go through the completed questionnaire. The osteopath will ask additional questions to be able to form a complete image of you and your complaint. This is followed by a thorough manual physical examination. With this, osteopath Marie-Jeanne Nijdam forms an impression of the mobility of your bones, muscles and organs. She also gets an image of the blood circulation and innervation of the examined structures. After the examination, the osteopath explains her findings in relation to your complaint. It is advisable to bring any additional information in the form of MRI results, blood tests and / or X-rays to the appointment. 

If any additional research is required, the osteopath will always refer you to your general practitioner or specialist.

Treatment & follow-up

Depending on your complaint and the outcome of the examination, treatment may consist of applying manual techniques, coaching, nutrition and / or lifestyle advice. Exercises can also be taught to support the effect of the treatment.
If necessary, we will make a follow-up appointment. This is on average 2-4 weeks after the first consultation. The reason for this is to give the self-healing ability of your body the opportunity to do its job. After the intake and the examination, osteopath Marie-Jeanne Nijdam draws up a treatment plan. To guarantee the quality of the treatments, we evaluate the effect of the treatment on your complaint.
After treatment it is advisable that you take it easy for the first 24 hours (no heavy physical exertion) and drink enough water. Sometimes people feel tired after treatment or react more emotionally than usual, this is a normal reaction of the body. If in doubt, you can always contact Marie-Jeanne Nijdam.
After completing the treatment process, you will receive a short questionnaire digitally to evaluate the effect of the treatment and there is room for feedback.
