Women’s Health Physiotherapy

Here at Everybody Physiotherapy we provide assessment and management of musculoskeletal complaints commonly associated with pregnancy.
Pregnancy can be one of the most rewarding and joyful times in a woman’s life. However, it can also be one of the most uncomfortable and painful times as well.

  • We commonly see a range of conditions associated with pregnancy:
  • Low back pain
  • Buttock pain
  • Pelvic and pubic pain
  • Groin pain
  • Upper back pain
  • Pain and tingling in the hands
  • Pelvic floor issues

In addition to providing hands on treatment, we can also provide you with strategies to continue to manage your pain at home.
In addition to treatment of complaints we can provide education on a number of areas of interest with pregnancy and birth. These areas include:

  • Effect of pregnancy on the body
  • Impact of pregnancy on pelvic floor
  • Pain management strategies
  • Active labour positioning
  • Natural pain management during labour
  • Perineal trauma and minimisation
  • Post-natal preparation- pelvic floor, bowel/bladder, pain prevention, return to sport
  • Antenatal and postnatal exercise

At Everybody Physiotherapy we also have a hydrotherapy pool, for use for private or group antenatal aqua aerobics classes.

Women’s health physiotherapy is based on knowledge, but also requires understanding/compassion to expecting mothers. As a mother of 4, Jenny has firsthand experience of the difficulties that may arise with pregnancy and labour/birth. Not only can she provide you with physiotherapy assessment and management, but also personal understanding/empathy for what expecting mothers have to overcome to give birth to their beautiful baby.

 

 


Dietetics

Accredited Practising Dietitians are responsible for identifying, assessing and treating dietary and nutritional problems, at an individual and wider public health level. Uniquely, dietitians use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease, which they translate into practical guidelines, to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.

Regulated by law, and governed by an ethical code to ensure they work to the highest standard, dietitians are able to work with both the sick and healthy population, in both a one-on-one and group setting. Dietitians also work within medical teams, alongside other health care professionals and support networks, to advise on the best course of action for an individual’s nutritional well-being.

Here at Everybody Physiotherapy Penrith, we provide dietary intervention and management for many scenarios, some of which include:
  • Sports Nutrition
  • Coeliac disease
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Paediatric and Adolescent nutrition
  • Disordered eating
  • Weight loss and weight management
