WHAT TO EXPECT

When you book your appointment you will receive an email confirmation with details of how to find us and where to go when you arrive for your appointment. You will also receive an email and text reminder the day before your appointment.

When you arrive at your first appointment you will be given forms to fill in. This ensures we have detailed information about your medical history and other relevant information.

In the appointment a thorough history of why you've come to see us and other relevant information will be taken. Your Physio will do a comprehensive physical assessment. You may be asked to remove your top and wear shorts so your Physio can accurately assess what your body is doing.

After the assessment your Physio will explain their findings and discuss a treatment plan. The majority of the time there is also time to start treatment in the initial assessment. If the history and assessment is complex there may occasionally not be time for treatment but your Physio will have a clear 'picture' of what is happening and how they can treat in the follow up appointment. It is important the assessment is completed and thorough for the treatment to be most effective.

We treat with a 'hands on' approach, looking at the body as a whole!

  • Pelvic floor tone (release, strength and function)
  • Muscle imbalance
  • Nerve/dura mobility
  • Scar tissue flexibility
  • Cranial restrictions

Rehabilitation exercises may be prescribed to address areas identified in your assessment and may include:

  • Specific strengthening 
  • Breathing and movement retraining 
  • Pelvic floor exercises

Physiotherapy Mummy MOT/ 6 week check

We recommend this for ALL women following child birth.

The Mummy MOT is a detailed post natal check that lasts 1 hour. It is ideally done at 6 weeks post birth but IT'S NEVER TOO LATE!!

Most women after giving birth have a weakness in either the tummy or pelvic floor which then creates instability and poor core strength. The result can be back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness.

To avoid any long term issues come early and have a Mummy MOT that includes;

  • Pelvic floor and tummy gap check
  • Assessment of any physical problems arising from pregnancy and birth
  • Recommendations of a bespoke post natal recovery programme, looking at posture, breathing and core activation

Advice on safe exercise is given as well as the best post natal exercises

Return to Sport

(Book an initial assessment & treatment for this service)

Ruth Cockerill, a Mother of two, Ex International Athlete and Pre & Post Natal and Sports Injuries Specialist Physiotherapist will be able to assess your needs for return to your chosen exercise and level you desire. 

Ruth will take you through a treatment and rehabilitation process related to your situation, i.e. pre & post natal related conditions/dysfunctions, previous injuries, weaknesses post birth and requirements of your chosen sport/exercise.

She has done it twice herself!  

Pelvic Floor Health Check

This is an individual assessment of pelvic floor tone, pliability, length & strength so that treatment is specific to you as an individual. 

Not all pelvic floors are weak, some are too tight and actually need more length/release to achieve a better contraction.

Depending on findings treatment may include release, down training, strength/endurance/timing training, functional training.

Who is it for:

  • If you've given birth or had gynae surgery
  • If you had pelvic floor trauma, eg tear/episiotomy
  • Recurrent low back/pelvic pain
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction, eg incontinence, sexual dysfunction/pain
  • Pre/post hysterectomy 
  • and more
Pregnancy Massage

We offer a pregnancy massage in a clinical setting aimed at addressing muscle imbalance that occurs during pregnancy. Eg tight quads/hip flexors. This helps maintain optimal posture and mobility, preventing common ante natal symptoms such as pelvic girdle pain (PGP).
