Our Practice

 

Chiropractic Leiden opened its doors in 1990 and has been committed ever since to help people achieve optimal health by offering the best chiropractic care possible. We do this by applying our scientific knowledge, sharing our practical experience, and from the bottom our hearts. Quality and service are our priorities.

With this vision we approach everyone as a unique human being, we take our time to conduct a comprehensive physical examination, establish a well-founded diagnosis, and then discuss a treatment plan.

Our competence in different chiropractic techniques and specialization in functional neurology  allows us to provide the chiropractic care that fits your needs. Because we not solely approach the manifestation of the problem but rather focus on what lies at the core of a disorder, we will not only address structural imbalance, but also nutrition and exercise. 

Chiropractic is an academic program that strives to achieve balance in the nervous system, without the use of medication by promoting the self-healing capacity of the body.

Our treatments are complemented by 'thematic-hours’ during which our skilled team members are deployed to explain the importance of teamwork between chiropractor and patient in achieving optimal health, and to teach how to maintain wellness once the complaints have disappeared. 

Finally, we cherish the close network between Chiropractie Leiden and specialists, general practitioners, therapists and gyms in the region because we believe that a multidisciplinary approach that puts the patient first, leads to the fastest recovery.

 Our Dietician

 

Weight and inflammation play an important role in many complaints. That is why in some cases, our chiropractors at Chiropractie Leiden will advise you to see a dietitian. It is just as important to address the chemical aspect of the body during treatment and prevention, as the biochemical and neurological ones.

 

Chiropractie Leiden has a very qualified dietician on staff! Reineke Koldewijn-Erdbrink does not believe in 'dieting' or any other kind of 'quick fix'. Depending on the indication and your own preferences, she will be able to guide you into a eating pattern that will help you become healthier, more vital and more energetic.

 

Reineke Koldewijn-Erdbrink's treatments are in line with the latest, cutting edge scientific findings. She is also specialized in allergies.
