Fetske H.A. Hogen Esch, MSPT
Fetske Hogen Esch, Owner and Managing Director of the F-act Pelvic Pain Clinic BV has specialised in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of pain in the abdomen, lower back and pelvic area since 1991. She is one of the pioneers in pelvic physiotherapy and, for more than 25 years, has been treating people with chronic pelvic pain. She was the first pelvic physiotherapist in Europe that was trained in the Wise-Anderson protocol. She is known as the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ of CPPS and regularly lectures on the topic both in the Netherlands and abroad. In addition to her work in the F-act clinic, she is also owner of Bekkenfysiotherapie Hogen Esch and has spent more than 20 years training pelvic physiotherapy students. For many years she was responsible for the content of the Masters Course in Pelvic Physiotherapy
Medical diagnoses of pain in the abdomen, lower back and pelvis often do not take into account potential problems with the muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints in this area. In fact, these body elements often play an essential role in the underlying cause of the pain. Fetske has detailed knowledge of the intimate relationship between the organs and musculo-skeletal structure and carefully considers this relationship – which other specialists sometimes ignore.
