PHYSIOTHERAPY & FITNESS IN THE CHILDBEARING YEARS
Our consulting physiotherapists have completed post graduate training in Continence and Women's Health physiotherapy and can offer all your treatment needs throughout pregnancy, in your initial postnatal recovery and throughout your motherhood journey. Our initial consultations are between 45 and 60 minutes and follow up consultations are between 30 and 45 minutes depending on your needs. Our clinic is fully equipped with all treatment modalities including real time ultrasound, therapeutic ultrasound and LASER for your complete care. We also stock various braces and supports for use in pregnancy and have TENS units available for hire and purchase.
In the area of fitness, our level of tertiary training sets us apart. Physiotherapists are highly trained health professionals so are aware of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and respiratory changes your body undergoes and have a solid understanding of the medical considerations of pregnancy and the ideal way to rehabilitate yourself safely and effectively in the postnatal period. Your pelvic floor is always our priority when exercising in this stage of your life and all our classes ensure complete pelvic floor safety. Our physiotherapy knowledge allows us to cater for individual needs and make exercise modifications easily. This makes us unique to all other fitness classes. Rebates are available from health funds too.
One of most rewarding elements of working in this area is being able to empower women like yourself with knowledge about your body to help you manage this stage of your life. Our education classes cover information on pelvic floor muscles and problems with the pelvic floor, bladder and bowel health, back care and safe and appropriate exercise as well as preparing for birth. Your physiotherapist is a wealth of information and quite often, informal education sessions are conducted in your fitness classes.
