Jeannette Hoftijzer

Looking beyond pain & recurrence for long-term Movement Health with Kinetic Control: "The ‘why’ of how people get injured and experience recurrence, is far more interesting and clincially important than just treating the pain and rehabilitating an injury.”  


Jeanette’s extensive clincial experience of working with elite performers allows her Kinetic Control teaching to remain focussed on achieving the patient’s goals, both acute and long-term. Jeanette states,’ the prevention of injury recurrence is the most important part of my role as a physiotherapist’. Highlighting her diverse skill set and broad clincial capabilities, professional athletes ranging from the world of track and field, speed skating, ice hockey and basketball, currently utilise Jeanette as their specialist performance advisor.


As a Kinetic Control tutor, Jeannette helps develop clinicians’ skills in applying the system’s structured clincial framework of movement assessment and targeted retraining to their own practice. Jeannette’s clincial expertise helps them recognise that pain management is just the first stage of recurrence manangement, injury prevention and long-term return to function.


Supporting her wide clinical skill set, Jeannette graduated as Physiotherapist at the Academy for Sports Studies in The Hague, Holland,  before working in Switzerland and continuing her post graduate education as a Manual Therapist. Alongside her Kinetic Control teaching, Jeannette, works in private practice and is aligned with the Johan Cruyff Institute and several other talent programmes of the Dutch Olympic Committee. Additionally, Jeannette is a TPM Consultant (The Performance Matrix), operating as a highly experienced practitioner with this compliementary movement analysis and retraining system.
