If the answer to any of these questions is YES then I can help.
I have a special interest in returning women to fitness after injury and pregnancy.
Having completed courses by the amazing American physiotherapist – Julie Wiebe (www.juliewiebept.com) I now have a fresh approach when I assess and treat a postnatal or injured athlete. Julie is an advocate for the awareness of pelvic health issues in fitness via her Diaphragm/Pelvic Floor Piston Science concept.
The concept introduces us to a dynamic team of muscles, inclusive of the relationship between the diaphragm and pelvic floor, that works together to balance muscular forces and pressures, creating an integrative model of dynamic central stability. Issues with the musculoskeletal system, movement pattern efficiency, pelvic health, and fitness performance can be addressed simultaneously when this central team is coordinated, then effectively linked to the rest of the superficial postural system.
I have seen huge improvements in athletes and runners symptoms by making simple adjustments to their form to ensure ground reaction forces are reduced which supports a women’s pelvic health, performance and susceptibility to injury.
