Hi, I’m Claire, and I run FITZ AND PHYSIO. I’ve got a passion for Pelvic Health physiotherapy, which means I specialise in all things connected to the pelvis and in particular ante and post-natal women.
I love getting people reconnecting with their bodies and getting the best out of them. I have clinical expertise in treating all conditions related to the pelvic floor including coccyadynia, prolapse, overactive bladder, incontinence, rectus diastasis, as well as complicated pelvic pain. I’m a mum to two very heavy boys and I understand firsthand the challenges that motherhood and pregnancy can bring.
I’ve worked for the NHS, Bupa and for the APPI, which is one of the world's leading Pilates institutions.
Whilst working for the APPI, I rehabilitated the injuries of high-level athletes including swimming teams, netball players and ballet dancers and delivered a whole range of reformer and mat based classes. It was here that I developed a love of movement and saw first hand the benefits that strong and a stable pelvis brings to sport performance as well as being essential for pregnancy and new mums.
I draw upon my experience of Pilates and musculoskeletal physiotherapy to look at every individual holistically, and apply my pilates knowledge when rehabilitating the pelvic floor. I use a lot of manual therapy (hands on treatment) and acupuncture skills to help with pain relief. I am enthusiastic about getting people back to what they love doing, and pride myself in making exercise enjoyable and accessible for all, and will work tirelessly to ensure you meet your goals – whatever they may be!
Although specialising in Pelvic Health, I maintain an ability to assess all types of pain and sports injuries.
I’ve recently relocated from London to the Bath area, I work for the NHS two days a week and run Fitz & PHYSIO the rest of the week.
