Movement is of vital importance
Movement is like a universal medicine, with physical as well as mental disorders. Physiotherapy is essential in maintaining or restoring functional movements. Actually, when a person needs physiotherapy it means that his or her functional movement is disturbed. According to Roelfsema Physiotherapy, there is always a way to improve. Improving can mean different things to different people. Improvement is also not necessarily the goal during a treatment period. The goal is, whenever possible, to let people move even better than before. Besides this, we pay attention to prevention to avoid re-injury in the future.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Do I need a referral letter to make an appointment?
No, since 2006 there is ‘direct accessibility physiotherapy’ which means you do not longer need a referral letter from your general practitioner. With certain conditions (after surgery or a bone fracture) it could be better to ask your specialist for a referral letter because your insurance will possibly reimburse more treatment sessions.
Does my physiotherapist have access to my medical history?
No. The physiotherapist has no access to a person’s medical history, so it is not possible for the physiotherapist to see results from scans, X-rays, and other examinations. Also, the medical history from previous physiotherapists is not accessible to other physiotherapists. Do you have results from medical examinations which might be important for the physiotherapist to know? Please inform your physiotherapist.
Is my treatment included in the chronic reimbursement procedure?
It depends on the type of injury and the reason why the injury is there. After surgery or a fracture, the insurance usually reimburses more sessions when there is a referral letter available. There is a list, composed by the government, where many disorders are specified. Ask your insurance company fort his list. Only if your specific disorder is on this list, your treatment probably will be reimbursed completely. If not, or if you are in doubt about this, please ask your physiotherapist or call your insurance company.
Can I switch from physiotherapy practice easily?
Yes, you can. You have the freedom to choose which physiotherapist will treat you. Where it can be difficult to switch from a general practitioner, it is easy to switch between physiotherapists.
Is my treatment paid by my deductible excess?
No. Your treatment will be covered by additional insurance from your health insurance company. If you do not have additional insurance for physiotherapy, the insurance company will not pay for your treatment and therefore you need to pay for it yourself. Your excess will not be claimed. Only if you have a chronic reimbursement procedure, your treatment will be reimbursed from the 21st session from your basic insurance. When the basic insurance is used, then automatically your excess will be used first.
