Petra Stekhoven

Petra studied physiotherapy in Holland. She was interested in orthopaedic physical therapy from the beginning and realised early on that problems with the joints always have to be treated in connection with the rest of the body.

She worked for a back specialist and a knee specialist for several years. She is very experienced in treating shoulders, back and knees.

In 1997 she founded the practice Physiotherapy Zurich with her husband Marco and has been treating her own patients ever since.

Petra completed courses according to Maitland and McKenzie and learned functional taping according to McConnel already in the nineties. In 2000, she continued her education in kinesiotaping. Since 2005 she has been organising and leading courses in Easytaping and Anatomy.
