Neck-Shoulder-Head-Jaw and Face Symptoms 

Sento Medical Amsterdam has a special interest in neck, shoulder, head, jaw and facial pain.

 These days problems in these areas of the body are becoming more and more common. Often, these symptoms can be attributed to specific situations or postures and treated accordingly. However, a large number of these are diagnosed as nonspecific, meaning that they have no clear origin. One example is a growing group of people with nonspecific facial pain and complaints of the arm, neck and shoulders. (CANS, previously RSI)

 We use the 'hands on' method of manual therapy and, if needed, specific exercises that can easily be applied to daily life at home and at work.

A continuous evaluation of the treatment (from the physiotherapist andthe patient) gives us a clear perspective. In addition to manual therapy, we also use dry needling and exercise therapy (posture therapy) in our treatments.
