What women want!
Our Women's Health team have honed their skills specialising in the diagnosis and therapeutic treatment of all disorders affecting the pelvis and pelvic floor, for women of all ages and stages of life. This includes: pelvic girdle pain and pregnancy related issues; the prevention of pelvic and bladder dysfunction; optimising recovery post birth, as well as ongoing advice for health and fitness.
Your first session is for you to get to know your physio and for her to get to know you and your body: your symptoms, your concerns, any prior investigations/treatment you have had and what your goals are. Within this session you will be assessed physically, which may include an internal examination of your pelvic floor. Together you will then formulate goals and a plan to reach them.
Follow-up treatment sessions
Guided by your physio, you will have either 30min, 45min or 60min treatments which - like all treatments at Reform - will be a combination of modalities best suited to you and your goals. These may include: hands-on work, acupuncture, exercise rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, Pilates and reformer Pilates. Your physio will continuously reassess you throughout, to ensure you reach your goals as quickly as possible. They may also refer you to other members of the Reform team depending on your developing needs.
Pregnancy is the most natural of events, but recovery can be a struggle; especially the first time, it can be difficult to know what you can and can't do and what is normal. Our team is here for you! We can check-in with you post-birth, or further down the line, to answer any questions you may have, check your pelvic floor, your abdominals and get you exercising safely from as soon as 6 weeks after your baby’s birth.
