Assessment, Management & Treatment
All assessments are conducted in a private and supportive environment with a women's health physiotherapist who has undertaken further training through the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
We will help you understand the factors that may be contributing to your problems and take a holistic approach to develop a collaborative management plan with you.
We will liaise with your referring GP and or specialist to ensure your care in integrated.
Treatment may include the use of hands on physiotherapy techniques, used to improve mobility, reduce muscle tension, ease muscle pain and allow you to return to functional activities. Depending on your individualised problem, the physiotherapist may offer the use of external supports, including belly-sized tubigrip or pelvis stability belts.
