‘I’m convinced that ‘moving better, heals’ - that's why my clinic in Belgium is named “Move To Heal”.
This conviction is based upon my clinical experience, both as a physiotherapist and manual therapist but this has been tremendously influenced by the evidence-based and structured vision of Kinetic Control; it’s not only my professional vision but also my life vision.’
Koen joined Kinetic Control in 2002 and was immediately enthusiastic about the evidence-based clinical reasoning framework of Kinetic Control. ‘Kinetic Control offered me ‘a library’ of evidence-based clinical knowledge but with ‘some spare places left’ for integrating all the clinical and theoretical experiences I had already built up. Everything became so much easier and so much more logical since I attended my first KC course,’
Qualified since 2006 as Kinetic Control Accredited Tutor, he has taught Kinetic Control courses in Belgium and abroad (The Netherlands, Switzerland, Egypt, Qatar, UK).
In Koen’s opinion, musculoskeletal complaints and symptoms are often caused by movement dysfunction. The keystone to successful rehabilitation is to make a patient conscious of their movement dysfunction and for them to take ownership in learning how to address their own individual movement patterns’. All this in consideration with the personal, psychosocial and environmental features of the patient of course’.
Koen is a musculoskeletal physiotherapist based in Gelrode, Belgium, completing his Masters degree in 1990 at the University of Leuven and continuing postgraduate education in Sports Physiotherapy. Since then he has consolidated and expanded his knowledge with an extensive program of musculoskeletal rehabilitation courses. Additionally, he has also completed his manipulative therapy studies at SOMT in the Netherlands.
In 1991, Koen established his clinic in Gelrode called ‘Move To Heal’. Since 2004 Koen is also a practical assistant in postgraduate education Manual Therapy (faculty of Physiotherapy FaBeR at University of Leuven).
As a passionate cyclist, he experiences and enjoys the overall benefits of moving.
