Its Not Just the Baby!

Its here at last! Tara, one of our musculoskeletal physios, can now offer physiotherapy assessments for those aches and pains during pregnancy and beyond.

Having attended two postgraduate courses recently, Tara has the skills (and personal experience!) to assess, treat and guide ladies experiencing neck, back, pelvic pains during pregnancy which evolve with the physical and human adjustments our bodies go through. Postnatally, we then go through further physical changes with the demands of motherhood. As our muscles and skeleton take some time to return to pre-pregnancy, Tara can guide you through this stage and ensure you exercise appropriately to regain a firmer tummy and feel in better condition. Believe it or not, there is a right way and a wrong way to get a flat tummy – its not just about sucking it in! With Tara’s Pilates and physio background she can support you through each stage, helping you to return to things you enjoy doing.

Her recent training involved a two day course of lectures/practical sessions, with an internationally renown Physio, Diane Lee. Using evidence based practice and sharing experiences the course focused on the rehabilitation of the trunk/pelvis and abdominal musculature.

Whatever your symptoms are, Tara can assess, advise and guide you. We also have built in links with local personal trainers with postural qualifications..
