Specialist Pelvic Physiotherapy for Motherhood & Beyond
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of the various conditions that involve the pelvic floor and symptoms that manifest in this area. The pelvic floor includes your muscles, ligaments, nerves and connective tissue.
Physiotherapy for the Pre and Post Natal Period.
Specific treatments for pelvic girdle pain, lower back pain, pelvic floor dysfunction and preparation for birth.
Book in for a post natal physiotherapy check - a check of your abdominal, pelvic floor and postural muscles. Whether you had your baby 6 weeks ago, or 6 years ago, a post natal check is an ideal way to ensure that there aren’t any long term health complications following birth.
Come and attend one of my ‘Mum and Bub’ Pilates classes - a post natal pilates style class where the baby comes too. .
Specialist Treatments for Pelvic Pain, Gynaecological or Bladder and Bowel issues.
Effective treatments for bladder incontinence, prolapse, sexual dysfunction and pelvic pain.
One in three women suffer from incontinence, and up to 50% of women also have a vaginal prolapse and many have pain with intimacy.
These conditions can be treated very effectively with specialist physiotherapy, which is now known to be the “Gold standard” first-line treatment for conditions such as incontinence or prolapse.
Sports Specific Physiotherapy and Bespoke Pilates sessions
Whether you’re a top performing athlete with some pelvic, groin or hip problems, or have just had a baby and want run a ‘couch to 5K’ program - then you’re in the right place.
Aches and pains will ruin performance – and repeated groin strain, back pain and incontinence are often as a result of poor pelvic biomechanics during sport. Also, around 30% of athletes even suffer incontinence – both men and women! But this can be fixed.
Book in for a sports specific biomechanic assessment and start moving better!
