The practice

Fysiotherapie voor Kinderen has been established in Gemert-Bakel since 1990 and has locations in Beek en Donk (Laarbeek) and Boekel.

Pediatric Physiotherapy is a specialization of physiotherapy. The practice has therefore been fully adjusted for children of ages 0 to 18 years old. We treat children with challenges with (Senso-) mobility development, sport related pains and posture problems.

We value a positive approach to the treatment of a child in a stimulating and challenging environment.

Joy in movement and learning through play are the foundation of every treatment of a young child. We value a good collaboration between all parties involved with the development of the child.

Treatment at home is, after consultation and if necessary, possible. Karin de Bruijn works in the practice, a BIG registered pediatric physiotherapist, included in the Central Quality Registry (KRF NL) of the Royal Society for Physiotherapy (KNGF) and the Dutch Association of Pediatric Physiotherapy (NVFK).

Your physiotherapist

My name is Karin de Bruijn, I was born in Beek en Donk and have been living in Gemert for over 25 years. I am the proud mother of 3 children and one grandchild. In 1987 I graduated the bachelor  physiotherapy in Utrecht, after which I continued with a study post-HBO sports physiotherapy during which I have worked at various locations in and around Utrecht.

This is where I first came into contact with the therapy specifically for children which sparked my ambition for further specialization for pediatric physiotherapy, through a wide range of courses.

In 1990 I started in what used to be a ‘Sensorimotor skills for children’ practice in Gemert, which I have taken over in 1992. The practice moved in 1994 to its current location in Gemert. In 2010 I started a location in Beek en Donk and in 2017 another in Boekel.

From 1996 to 1999 I graduated the very first study for pediatric physiotherapist from the Avans Hogeschool in Breda. During that same time I also completed the course for Sensory/Sensorimotor Integration. I have been keeping up to date with developments in my field on a yearly basis, for example with a study ASM (Athletic Skills Model), which emphasizes a broad motorical development.

What I enjoy about my work is the dynamism, authenticity and originality of children. It’s a challenge to find the best way to connect with every child in order to stimulate development optimally. Everything happens with coordination with parents and others in the direct environment of the child.

Besides my passion for my work I have always been an active sporter. I have coached and trained junior field hockey, as well as have trained the youngest youth of 4 and 5 years old (funkey).

I’m very interested in languages and as such speak, besides Dutch, decent English, German French as well as a fair bit of Italian.

Children physiotherapy

Children develop their senses and motor skills through play. Usually that goes without saying. For some children the development takes longer, it deviates from what is usual or there are postural or sports related complaints. This can be due to a condition, simply because the development is slightly different, due to an accident or due to overload.
In these cases, pediatric physiotherapy can offer concrete help.

How does the pediatric physiotherapist work?
The starting point in the treatment is that the needs of the parents and the child are central.
By means of intake, research and several (standardized) tests, a complete picture is created of the motor level or the motor problem and any additional problems. Based on the findings, a treatment plan is drawn up in close consultation.

The treatment is aimed at getting the most optimal movement possible.
For babies, the treatment largely consists of handling and play advice to the parents, so that they can apply this in their daily care.
For an older child, playing is most important. Skipping, hopping, climbing, jumping and throwing a ball are important skills for children to learn, as are crafts and writing.

If necessary, the treatment can also take place at home. This often applies to children aged 0 to 2 or children with a serious disability.
The number of treatments is of course partly dependent on the complaint and the request for help.
Sometimes advice is enough, for example posture or sports advice. In the case of chronic complaints, treatment may take longer.
