You play a musical instrument as a hobby or profession, but find yourself suffering certain limitations in one way or another. These limitations may be a direct result of playing an instrument, or could be due to a chronic illness, accident or congenital disease. It may also be the case that you or your child have a physical disability but would like to learn to play a musical instrument, and are not sure how to go about it. Revalidatie Friesland provides expert advice and possibly treatment in this respect to both children and adults.

A multidisciplinary team is present at Revalidatie Friesland in Beetsterzwaag, consisting of a rehabilitation doctor, an occupational therapist, a physiotherapist, a music therapist, a speech therapist, a psychologist and a social worker, all specialised in treating and assisting musicians with limitations in playing their instruments.
