• Postnatal Care

    Recovery after childbirth and returning to activity brings a lot of questions and confusing advice. Recovery can be challenging and very unique to each individual depending on a lot of factors.

    Whether you are just wanting advice and safe rehab exercises to get back to your best and what you love OR you need a full assessment of separation and pelvic floor function - we have you covered.

  • Women's Health Physiotherapy

    Women's health physiotherapy is a well-known way to help assess and manage or prevent a wide range of issues:

    • Bladder dysfunction and LBL
    • Pelvic Girdle pain during or after pregnancy
    • Prolapse
    • Postnatal recovery
    • Safe guidance of return to activity
  • At Physiosteps, we are now able to provide Women’s Health Physiotherapy services. This is an area of Physio where we can make such a huge difference, particularly in post partum women. Too often regaining your normal strength and function is forgotten or pushed aside. Too often bladder leakage is thought of as a normal thing.
    Women’s health physio can help assess and plan the best course of action for you, dependent on your goals. Whether that is simply to get back to running or netball, safely, or improve bladder control or pain.
