Description

Curious to understand the functioning of the human body and passionate about manual medicine, I completed a 6-year course at the Université Libre de Bruxelles before obtaining my osteopathic diploma. Today, I consult in several multidisciplinary practices in Brussels where I ensure a precise, gentle and patient-friendly treatment. As an osteopath, and in a general way, I am interested in musculo-articular pains as well as in their relief by the hand and by the movement. I am particularly interested in the treatment of pregnant women, the jaw joint and its relationship with the cervical spine, and acute situations such as torticollis or lumbago.

Answers to patient questions

  • General topics

    Hi, I have a small Hernia (L5-S1) which pushes on the sciatic nerve. The pain is now extended to the knee/calf/foot. Which is the specialist I should get in contact with?

    • Hello,

      I think it would be wise to see a neurologist before consulting any manual therapist, especially if you have tingling sensations/numbness in the leg.

    Hello, my shoulder is about a few centimeters out of place since i landed on it strangely. My question is how serious this can be since I still have full range of motion although it does feel unstable in certain positions when I do sports and which doctor I need to see to put it back into place.

    • Hello, I advise you see a sports doctor so a detailed analysis can be made of the structures in your shoulder. If you have full range of motion, it is highly unlikely that anything need to be put back into place. Still, a carefully examination of the surrounding tissues would be wise.
