Looking For a Women's Health Physiotherapist in Canberra?

Women’s health physiotherapy refers to conditions that are particular to women and can present at any point, often in relation to pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. There are many conditions related to women’s health and at Back In Strength, our women’s health physiotherapists support and guide women through these issues using a variety of treatments.

One of the main areas of women’s health are the changes associated with pregnancy and can be broken into two areas, Antenatal and Postnatal physiotherapy. Every mother, child and pregnancy are unique, which is why it’s important to work alongside a passionate and experienced women’s health physiotherapist.

Our women’s health physiotherapists are compassionate, discreet and welcoming, offering safe and private consultations. During the consultation you may be asked detailed questions about your previous medical history, bladder and bowel function, and obstetric history. Our women’s health physiotherapists will use a variety of treatment techniques suited to your individual situation.

Sometimes gentle mobilisation of the relevant joints and muscles, strapping and stretches can make the world of difference. Our Pilates classes help consolidate strength and stability, and ensure your posture remains optimal during pregnancy.

A careful planning process with the client to develop a small class clinical pilates program, with great and careful supervision from Brie. Good equipment and plenty of room in the studio in Deakin

Jean was amazing! Friendly, evidence-based and positive. First went to see her when I was in huge pain and facing surgery. She took the time to work out how to reduce my pain and started me on a program to treat my injury. Several months later - no pain, no weakness and no need for surgery. Highly recommended!

First time goer and not the last! Hamish spent time hearing about my injury and a doable plan was made for me. The app they use lets me remember what exercises I have to do and the ability to touch base during visits using the app keeps myself and Hamish on the same page. Strongly recommend Back In Strength.

I have found Back in Strength to be very professional. After looking in other places, my neurosurgeon recommended Back in Strength to me after spinal fusion surgery. The treatment was tailored to my personal needs and explanations were made clear. It was a one-to-one experience which was followed up with home exercise., which could be digitally monitored.

I have been attending Back in Strength for 5 years. I started Clinical Pilates, for a back condition, with Anne, then Jo and now Maeve, all who provide a professional approach to rehab. Working with me, they have developed and supervised an exercise program designed for my condition, with regular reviews and updating. Their knowledge and holistic approach has enabled me to improve strength, endurance, standing and sitting tolerances. I continue to attend weekly and cannot imagine otherwise. Highly recommend.

The Back-in-Strength Physios are amazing, I have been going to them for four years after some major injuries and extensive back surgery. They helped with my rehab and now I choose to continue with weekly clinical Pilates classes and live a pain free life. I have had classes with many of the physios and would recommend them all - currently with the awesome Maeve.
