Chiropractor Mariska van der Laan was born and raised in Haarlem. She has always participated in sports (speedskating, softball and sailing). After high school her choice was clear and she went on to the Academy of Physical Education (ALO). Unfortunately, an injury kept her from completing the program. Instead, she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Movement Sciences from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. During her own rehab process she became interested in chiropractic care. In July 2010 she earned her Master’s degree in Chiropractic Care from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth and she has been working in The Netherlands since that time. During her chiropractic program she began to specialize in sport chiropractic. In September 2011 she completed this post-graduate program and since then she can call herself an Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (ICCSP).
Mariska van der Laan is a member of the Dutch Chiropractic Association (NCA) and registered with the Dutch Chiropractic Registration Board (SCN). As a sport chiropractor she is also associated with the Dutch Sport Chiropractic Association (NVSC).
