WHAT WE CAN HELP YOU WITH?
Do you leak when you cough or sneeze or do some sort of impact activity, like jumping or running?
Do you leak when you pick up something heavy?
Do you have to dash to the toilet with a sudden strong urge to empty your bladder?
Do you have a combination of these symptoms?
At Her Physio we recognise how embarrassing and life impacting these symptoms can be and are able to help you to improve them and your quality of life.
ANTE-NATAL AND POST-NATAL CARE
Whether you are pregnant and suffering with back pain or pelvic girdle pain, pain around the hips, groin and/or thighs (sometimes called SPD) we can help.
Or perhaps you are post-natal and wanting to return to sport but not sure how to safely do this? If so we are here to help you achieve your goals.
Or have you noticed a doming or bulging at the middle part of your tummy, since having a baby? If so contact us for support.
Have you noticed a bulging or heaviness around your vagina?
Have you had one or more vaginal deliveries? (It doesn't matter how long ago)
Are you constipated?
Do you have a chronic cough?
Is intercourse uncomfortable?
This list is not exhaustive but if you answered yes to any of the above you may be suffering from a prolapse. At Her physio we can assess for prolapse and advise on ways to manage it.
Alongside Perform Physiotherapy we run several Pilates classes at Studio 17 in Hinckley, Leicestershire. Classes are suitable for beginners and post-natal, run in 6 week blocks and cost £39 for a course.
One to one Pilates sessions are also available, these are done in our clinic and cost £35 for half an hour.
The Mummy MOT is a specialist post-natal assessment recommended for all women following delivery – whether 6 weeks or many years after. Already part of every new mother’s standard post-natal rehabilitation in France, trained specialists assesses the strength and function of the tummy and pelvic floor muscles to help prevent long-term childbirth related complaints.
After having a baby, half of all women have a weakness in either their tummy or pelvic floor area – over a third suffer with chronic pelvic pain. This creates instability and poor core strength and results in altered transfer load, back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness.
A Mummy MOT helps women avoid these distressing and often embarrassing symptoms. The assessment of the tummy gap and pelvic floor will enable the creation of a bespoke post-natal recovery programme plan devised especially for the woman, her lifestyle and fitness goals, including specific and safe post-natal exercises to regain stability and optimum function.
A Mummy MOT includes:
1-hour post-natal assessment with a Specialist Post-natal Health Physiotherapist
In depth check of pelvic floor strength and tummy gap
Assessment of any physical problems arising from pregnancy and birth
A bespoke post-natal recovery programme devised especially for you, your lifestyle and fitness goals. This includes specific and safe post-natal exercises to improve stability, posture and core strength
