Martijn van der Schouw

My name is Martijn van der Schouw, Chiropractor, DC, MChiro, BPhysio. At the end of 2012 I opened my own (solo) clinic in Amsterdam East-Watergraafsmeer. This practice has grown into a fully-fledged practice. At the beginning of 2021 I moved with my family to Almere Oosterwold. We built a house there, which also contains a practice space.

Because my practice in Amsterdam is well attended and Oosterwold is still a neighborhood in development, I will initially be present in my practice-at-home on Wednesdays.

Due to the small-scale set-up of the clinic, I am able to offer a very personal, tailor made service, ensuring that every patient gets the attention he or she deserves. I always make sure to reserve enough time in order to discuss your complaint, assess, carry out a treatment, and fill you in on your individual needs moving forward. I completed my study, graduating as Master of Chiropractic in Sydney, Australia. My background as a physiotherapist and the various technique and methodology seminars I attend make me an all-round chiropractor. I treat the spine as well as the extremities and their specific problems, resulting in a well rounded treatment and the best possible outcome, both in the short and long term.

Your neighbourhood chiropractor

Oosterwold Almere

Oosterwold is an Almere neighborhood in development with a special starting point: living and working in a green neighborhood, where the initiatives and residents themselves give substance to the infrastructure and public space. One of the pillars of this special area is that 50% of it will be used for urban agriculture, and every household will make a contribution.

Chiropractic Oosterwold is a home practice, conceived within the philosophy of Oosterwold. That is why, in addition to the practice, work is being done on setting up a picking garden where visitors to the practice are welcome. The idea is to grow herbs, vegetables and flowers. Before or after your visit, you can take a look for yourself and take home something beautiful, tasty and healthy from the picking garden.

There are no sidewalks or general parking spaces in Oosterwold. If you come by car, simply park in our driveway.

You can check with your health insurer what the requirements are and to what extent they reimburse. For your convenience, this link provides an overview of the reimbursement schemes of a number of health insurers.


You do not need a referral from your GP for a chiropractic consultation or treatment. Chiropractic falls under primary care. This means that the chiropractor has independent legal authority.
