Lidwina studied physiotherapy in Utrecht for four years including an internship in Indonesia for six months. There she worked in a hospital and a small health care center in the countryside, in addition to an organization that cared for disabled children.
When starting her study Lidwina had a strong interest in sport rehabilitation. This interest is reflected in her work as she has a strong focus on exercise and rehabilitation, which she combines with manual therapy to obtain long-term results. She is most passionate about working with orthopedic patients, who are in need of post-traumatic and post-operative rehabilitation, as these patients are overall well motivated to participate in their physical recovery and improvement can be measured almost on a daily basis.
Not long after she arrived in Phnom Penh she started to work part time for the Phnom Penh Crown Football Club. “The fact that I could be involved on the pitch and use my physio skills at the same time was like living my childhood dream.”
Responsibilities at Phnom Penh Crown FC included the rehabilitation and monitoring of injured players and all the match day duties. Lidwina also supported the Phnom Penh Crown FC during international competitions and travelled with the team to China and Vietnam. Additionally she has been called up for 3 international tournaments with the national youth team.
Lidwina finished the MLD (Manual Lymphatic Drainage) course following Dr Vodder method in 2015 and is therefore our specialist working with patients suffering from lymphatic system disorders. She brought her experience working with pre and post pregnancy patients from Holland to our clinic in Cambodia. Lidwina has also undertaken both a basic and advanced medical taping course, making her an expert in MTC.
