Max Health Care is the sports physiotherapy specialist. The physiotherapists in The Hague at Max Health Care will help you to get rid of your pain and problems in your back, shoulder, knee, neck, ankle and other body parts. Specialized in sports physiotherapy.
The sports physiotherapist plays an important role in prevention, information and advice for everyone who wants to start working out or is already exercising as a hobby or professionally (top athletes).
The sports physiotherapist treats clients who want to return to their work or start exercising again during or after illness or injuries. He also guides and advises experienced athletes who want to practice their sport at a high level.
The most frequently occurring complaints with which people see the sports physiotherapist are injuries to the knee, ankle, shoulder, hip and elbow. The therapy not only focuses on the recovery of the affected joints, but can also be intended to train those parts of the body that can still bear some burden. The sports physiotherapist is also a specialist in guiding people who have undergone (orthopedic) surgery and want to start exercising again.
The manual therapist specializes in research and treatment of patients with complaints in the spine and the joints in the arms and legs.
In general, manual therapy is suitable for complaints that, apart from pain, may also be associated with the limitations in the range of motion of a joint or joints.
Because of his specific knowledge and skills, the manual therapist mainly deals with complaints of the spine and complaints associated with it.
Common complaints that the manual therapist deals with are:
• head and neck pain, together with poor movement of the spine;
• neck and shoulder complaints with pain that radiates into the arms;
• complaints high in the back with rib- and chest pain;
• arthrosis of the hip;
• low back pain, possibly with radiating pain to the legs;
• certain forms of dizziness, induced by the movement of the neck;
• jaw complaints, possibly combined with neck complaints.
Joints can also have too much mobility. This can lead to instability and complaints. In this case, the manual therapist can give you specific training advice to make your joints more stable by means of using your muscles.
You could say that dry needling is a Western form of acupuncture. It is a treatment that is characterized by the insertion of special sterilized fine needles, in specific places, called "trigger points", or muscle hardness, in muscle tissue. The aim is to eliminate or relieve pain and other unpleasant feelings.
Why dry needling?
Persistent pain, tight and sore muscles, limited mobility and/or muscle fatigue are general clinical signs of the presence of trigger points. Dry needling is an effective technique for the treatment of muscle pain and muscle-related complaints, where local contraction of muscles ("muscle knots") and/or radiating sensations occur. You will hardly feel the insertion of the needle. If the muscle hardening is punctured, the muscle may contract briefly.

The Medical Taping Concept is successfully applied by us!
It is an originally Asian tape method, which not only has a stabilizing effect on joints, but also stimulates and supports muscle function, blood and lymph circulation. The wide field of indications include:
• (After) treatment of injuries of the musculoskeletal system such as back and shoulder complaints, but also knee and calf symptoms.
• Reducing symptoms caused by fluid problems such as oedema and bruises.
• Posture correction.
• Treatment of problems caused by overuse (such as mouse arm, tennis- or golf arm).
• Killing of (tension)headaches and neuralgia by influencing the nervous system.
Medical taping supports or activates the body's own repair mechanisms, without restricting the freedom of movement. This approach is much more functional in practice than, for example, the classic approach to similar injuries with conventional white sports tape.
The elastic tape ensures that the skin is lifted locally by using a special method of application. This immediately reduces subcutaneous pressure in the injury area, allowing the blood circulation and lymphatic flow to recover. As a result, the pressure on the pain receptors decreases and the pain reduces or even disappears completely. By continuously supporting the healing process in this way, an effect that extends beyond the regular treatment of half an hour is ensured. Because the tape can stay for several days, even during showering and swimming, a unique 24-hour treatment is created.
