Jan Willem Eigenraam, MSc Manual Physical Therapist, Climbing

My name is Jan Willem Eigenraam. Sports is my love and my life; which is why I decided to study Physical Education, graduating from theALOAmsterdam in 2011. Until that time I was a karate fanatic and also a serious runner and cyclist. During my time at the ALO I discovered climbing and bouldering and now you can always find me in the rocks. I liked it so much that after a few years of teaching I became the manager at the Klimmuur in Haarlem.Teaching and working as a manager did not bring me the satisfaction I was looking for, however, so I decided to study physical therapy. Physical therapy is a great profession where I find meaning as much in the physical as the mental aspect of the human body. It is a field in which I can combine my knowledge of movement, teaching, and methodology with that of pathology and rehabilitation. It is my passion to contribute to the well-being of the (sport) patient so that he/she can return to an optimal level in their sport and daily life.

As an athlete, I divide my time between Bouldering (sport climbing) and triathlons.This is why I also want to develop further in the treatment of injuries specifically affecting these athletes: fingers, hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders.
