 Core Stability


Core stability is an important concept within chiropractic, physical therapy and rehabilitation healthcare providers. According to chiropractor Jeroen Postma, "it is important to train the core musculature of back, pelvic girdle and deep stomach muscles and not just to look good." More importantly, he explains, this is essential to enhance proper biomechanics affecting our balance and posture during movement. By maintaining strong core muscles, the spine is stabilized and can work more efficiently, thereby lessening or even preventing back problems.

Chiropractors at Chiropractie Leiden have had years of experience with specific exercise regimens to help you stablize your spine and joints. Many of these exercises can be performed at home and may include the use of Thera Band®, Swiss balls or a cushion for pelvic support such as Back Vitalizer™.

Exercise and Nutrition


Nutrition, physical exercise and a healthy interior motivation are the primary instruments of your body's self defence. When dealing with physical impairments, it deserves extra attention.
What you eat will strengthen your immune system and the right kind of activity can take care of regeneration and vitality.

This is why at Chiropractie Leiden we will also address these important aspects of our health and recovery. 

We encourage all patients to exercise regularly to improve the overall health and wellness. For those of you who need the extra guidance and care, we work closely with the personal trainers of local heathclubs such as Jetts, Vlietlijn and SportCity Leiden). They are able to set up specific exercise programmes after consulting with your chiropractor about your limitations and fitness goals.
