Insurance Coverage for Chiropractic Care.
Chiropractic care is covered as alternative care in the Netherlands, and at Pure Health we are registered for reimbursement with all Dutch health insurance companies. Simply pay for your appointment on the day and we’ll provide you with an invoice via email which you can submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
Before scheduling your first appointment it is recommended to contact your insurance company to determine your exact reimbursement amount. Children receive the same amount of coverage as their parent and chiropractic care does not count towards your yearly excess (eigen risico).

Common problems and benefits
Back pain is a common reason for seeking chiropractic care. About 80% of people will experience disabling back issues at some point in their lives. Whether it’s low back pain or upper back pain, it can disrupt work, sleep, exercise and quality time with family and friends. Back pain is typically caused by mechanical issues in the back, such as herniated discs, muscle spasms, or poor posture. Our chiropractors in Amsterdam provide effective solutions for back pain.
National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)) that studied chiropractic versus usual medical care (UMC). The conclusion was that 56% of patients who consulted a doctor experienced a 30% reduction in low back pain after 4 weeks. However, 94% of patients who consulted a chiropractor experienced a 30% reduction in low back pain after 4 weeks.
The study focused on lower back pain because it’s a very common condition treated by primary care physicians. However, chiropractic treats more than back pain and is a therapy that treats misalignment of the joints and associated disorders of the nerves, ligaments and organs. It is used daily to relieve pain in shoulders, elbows, feet, necks, ankles, jaws and wrists. With just touch and very slight pressure, chiropractors can analyse and diagnose the source of many conditions.

The neck, composed of 7 stacked vertebrae with cartilage discs and ligaments, plays a crucial role in supporting the weight of our heads. With its high mobility and the weight it carries (averaging 4-5 kilograms), neck problems are common. Neck pain often accompanies other issues like headaches, migraines, hernias and more, affecting sleep, work, exercise and daily responsibilities. At our clinic, we identify the underlying cause of your neck pain through a comprehensive examination. Whether it’s poor posture, degeneration, herniation, scoliosis or stenosis, we create a personalised plan combining hands-on techniques and targeted exercises to help you regain optimal neck function and find relief.

Headaches are a common reason for seeking chiropractic care and at Pure Health Chiropractic we have a specialised focus on this area. The impact of headaches extends beyond the pain itself affecting work, family responsibilities and quality time with loved ones. Headaches can vary in severity and frequency with different underlying causes. They are generally categorised as secondary headaches caused by other issues such as sinus problems or neck-related concerns and primary headaches which are not associated with any underlying problem. Primary headaches include tension-type headaches, migraines and cluster headaches which can be debilitating and greatly impact quality of life. Individuals experiencing headaches may also face additional symptoms like tinnitus, facial pain, RSI, carpal tunnel, shoulder pain, balance problems, neck pain and stiffness. When you seek our help for headaches, our approach involves thorough questioning and examination to understand the specific type of headache you’re experiencing. Based on our findings we will develop a personalised plan to address your unique needs and provide effective relief.

When you experience jaw pain it can affect your life in a number of ways. It can make it harder to eat, harder to talk and even harder to sleep. While jaw pain is common it is a condition that many people are not aware of. Many of the people we see who have jaw pain feel like other people really don’t understand why they are so miserable with it. You may have heard the terms “TMJ” and TMD but not really understood what they mean. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint which is the technical name for your jaw joints. You have two of them (one on each side).
TMD stands for temporomandibular joint dysfunction. It refers to pain and dysfunction of the muscles that move your jaw and the joints of your jaw (TMJ).
Oftentimes when people have TMD they also experience facial pain, headaches, neck pain, migraines, tinnitus and shoulder problems.
Our chiropractors have a special interest in helping people with TMD.
Our approach to TMD, TMJ dysfunction and jaw issues is to:
– assess your jaw joints and muscles
– assess your posture (your posture, especially of your neck, can effect how your jaw works)
– work with your dentist
– provide chiropractic care and exercises to improve any problems
When someone consults us seeking help with their jaw issues, our approach is to ask
you questions and do a detailed examination to better understand your situation.
Once we have done this, we can formulate a plan based on your unique findings.

Do you frequently experience tightness in your shoulders? Have you noticed that your chin is protruding further forward than before? Perhaps those around you have observed a noticeable slump in your posture. It’s important to understand that posture plays a more significant role in our overall health than many people realise.
Poor posture can lead to various symptoms, including neck pain, headaches, jaw issues, shoulder pain, muscle tightness, lower back pain, reduced range of motion in the neck and shoulders, degeneration, hernias and many other discomforts. Managing poor posture is crucial for maintaining a healthy spine as we age. It’s vital to identify the underlying causes contributing to your posture, evaluate the involved tissues, and determine the most effective approach to improve your posture, regardless of your age or how long the issue has persisted.
When you seek our assistance for posture-related concerns, we will ask you relevant questions and conduct a comprehensive examination to gain a thorough understanding of your situation. Based on our assessment, we will develop a personalised plan tailored to your specific needs.
