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. 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

Being the only chiropractic clinic in this neighborhood, here at Chiropractie Watergraafsmeer, I largely see patients that live, work and/ or do sports in this area. However, people from adjacent suburbs, such as Amsterdam Zuid-Oost/South-East, Diemen, IJburg and often much further afield travel to my clinic.

When necessary, it is possible to coordinate an individual multidisciplinary health plan. I do this by working together with other health professionals in the area, in order to ensure and promote an optimal outcome. Oftentimes this entails exercise therapy, supervised by an exercise therapist or physio. Furthermore, I believe that nutrition is essential for recovery and proper functioning of the nervous system and can bring you together with experts specialized in this area as well.

Almost all insurance companies reimburse chiropractic care from the supplementary package. This means that there is no deductible.

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.
