We are a ‘Team in motion’. We try to help you with problems concerning your health and movement, But we like to move ourselves too. We love doing sports, and are dynamic in how we do and keep up with all the changes in our work. The only thing that does not move that fast is the consistency of our team. Our team members feel respected and valued, and therefore are loyal to the practice.
My name is John Engele. I have been working in Pijnacker since 2000. My passion for motion made me become a physical therapist. The sports I practice are biking, speed skating, running and swimming, but I also spent a lot of time with movement itself: To get people to move better in my job as a physical therapist, and to make them perform better in being a (speed skating) coach. I think medical rehabilitation is also a form of top-class sport.Make an appointment
