My interest lies with knee- and shoulder rehabilitation, I've had several surgeries on my knee myself, which enables me to understand the patient's situation. It was a relief that after a very long period with pain, I was pain free and had a good stability of the knee. After rehabilitating for a year I started paying hockey again. Now I have stopped playing and have been cycling for about five years. A highlight was my tour to Rome. After returning I had a speedbike within a week, which I still use. The shoulder rehabilitation is very interesting because anatomical it is an illogical joint, which is moved a lot. People only notice how often they use this joint, when there is something wrong with it. Even when I cycle I am using my arms and therefore my shoulders. This was not a body part I associated with cycling, but the muscle ache after my first few cycling tours made me definitely realise this!Frans du Marchie Sarvaas
