Medical Services

Exercise is healthy for body and mind, yet it is not logical to participate in a (business) sport for everyone. Therefore the Sports Centre highly values the medical aspects.

Physiotherapy Consultation

Do you have (small) physical symptoms? Do not hesitate and ask for advice. The UT organizes in various UT buildings, at stated times a physical therapy clinic. At the given time you can come for a first physiotherapy check. In 10 to 15 minutes, your complaint is evaluated and you receive an advice on the next steps.

Depending on the diagnosis this advice can vary from, for example a referral to a doctor or physiotherapist, an examination of your workplace by the health, safety and environmental coordinator or physiotherapist to the advice to start moving, possibly under supervision.
