Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a treatment modality designed to help restore movement and function to joints and muscles following injury or surgery.

I am first and foremost a musculoskeletal physio. I can assess and treat ‘regular discomforts’, joint pains, post op and orthopaedic patients, pre and post-natal ladies and any type of sports injury.

A Physiotherapy treatment can take many forms from movement and exercise to hands on treatments such as acupuncture, massage, and mobilisation. An initial appointment would involve a discussion of your problem or pain and how this came about and then a decision on the best treatment for you.

Acupuncture

I am trained in Western Medical Acupuncture through the AACP, I have also done some extra courses in Women’s Health, Headaches and Migraines, Upper body conditions, Auricular (ear) points and Cosmetic acupuncture.

The Western Medicine approach to acupuncture is that by stimulating sensory nerves in the skin and muscles, we can facilitate the body in balancing hormones and producing natural pain-relieving properties and chemicals. Although Western Medical Acupuncture still adheres to using Traditional Chinese Medicine meridians and points, there is an increasing evidence base behind the neurophysiology as to why such points can be beneficial in treating medical complaints. In either approach, a course of acupuncture, as opposed to stand alone treatments is shown to have longer lasting effects.

Pilates (1-2-1 and Small Groups)

Pilates is a form of exercise that works to help strengthen and lengthen muscles while working with your breath. Originally it was called Contrology by the man that founded the technique Joseph Pilates. He named it this as he saw it as a control of trunk while moving the limbs.

I teach matwork Pilates but where applicable I will use small pieces of equipment such as bands and balls. These can be used to enhance a move making it harder to complete and sometimes done to make it easier depending on what is needed.

I trained in matwork Pilates in 2009, before I was a Physiotherapist. I have taught classes at all levels from sports teams and academies to individual rehab clients. I have also taken additional courses in pre and post-natal Pilates and standing Pilates.

Pre & Postnatal MSK Physio

I have a keen interest in obstetric physiotherapy (pre/postnatal rehab) specialising in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions both during pregnancy, and immediately after.

Pregnancy puts a lot of pressure on the body. The aim of obstetric physiotherapy is to support mum’s throughout pregnancy if needed, and after baby is born to help her heal properly and regain any lost confidence in her body.

I will do an in-depth assessment of posture, tummy muscles and pelvic floor, will address specific concerns, provide treatment and give a personalised exercise plan.

Treatments include:

·       Core strengthening

·       Soft tissue release

·       Manual therapy

·       Bladder retraining

·       Pelvic floor retraining

·       Neuromuscular stimulation and biofeedback

·       Treatment of prolapse
