Physiotherapist & Human Movement Scientist
My name is Tom Sieverding. I am a Physiotherapist and Human Movement Scientist with a fascination for sport and exercise. I have a lot of experience with sports injuries, work related complaints and orthopedic rehabilitation.
In my treatments, I use exercise therapy, various types of taping (including Medical Taping Concept), Dry Needling and the Mulligan Concept (an active and mild form of joint, connective tissue and muscle mobilisation). In addition to physiotherapeutic treatments, I am also engaged in coaching and training athletes and people who want to optimise their lifestyle and become fit again.
In 2004, I obtained my master’s degree at the Faculty of Human Movement Sciences at the VU University Amsterdam with a specialisation in sport. The knowledge about human movement proved to be of great value in the training of athletes. Next to my study, I was involved in the guidance of various amateur and top athletes in rowing.
In 2006, I was appointed by the Royal Dutch Rowing Federation as a coach for the Paralympic Rowing Team, with whom I participated in the Paralympic Games of 2008 in Beijing. In addition to this, I worked as an Exercise Physiologist at the University Sports Centre (USC) of the UvA and HvA, where I took sports tests and made training schedules for athletes from various disciplines: especially endurance sports such as road cycling, mountainbiking, triathlon, ice skating, rowing and running. Also, I was often approached for carrying out performance tests for other sports such as boxing, volleyball, football and tennis. Especially the diversity of sports continues to challenge and inspire me.
Because of my interest in sports, I increasingly got the need to use my knowledge and experience to help people with physical problems to be able to move and participate in sports again. In order to achieve this ambition, I graduated from the THIM University for Physiotherapy in 2010.
After graduating, I have worked as a Physiotherapist in various practices and since January 2014, I am also a part-time professor at the THIM University for Physiotherapy. A great way to transfer my practical experience to students.
Currently I am not teaching anymore and spending more hours as primairily Physiotherapist. This way I can use all my knowledge and expertise in treating clients. So if you can use my help, please do not hesitate to contact me.
