Hi, Hannah here with you this month with a message and conversation I’d love to have with the ladies of Guisborough.I’m a Women’s Health Physiotherapist opening my services to the lovely community of Guisborough. I’d like to share a little of my story with you first which I am sure many of you will be able to relate to.During 2013 I fell pregnant with my daughter and thought everything would be plain sailing.
However half way through my pregnancy I started suffering with Pelvic Girdle Pain. This, combined with a difficult labour, left me left with urinary stress incontinence, pelvic pain and scarring. Then the mummy anxiety kicked in. Was I doing things right? Was I a good Mum?As a physiotherapist I knew I needed help to recover. I looked everywhere for someone or something to help and soon realised nothing was out there!
I began to take an interest in Women’s Health Physiotherapy and through reading and researching the subject began treating myself.During my second pregnancy the pelvic girdle pain returned with a vengeance. It was so debilitating that at one stage I had to use a wheelchair. Another hard labour followed and I decided enough was enough. I needed to help myself properly and prevent other women going through this alone with no where to turn.
At this point I began to specialise my career in Women’s Health Physiotherapy and I have found my true professional vocation helping other women.I am now an official Mummy MOT practitioner and have completed numerous specialised women’s health courses.
I can treat pregnant ladies with pelvic girdle pain and can complete a full post natal check which includes
– checking the Pelvic floor
– tummy gap (diastasis recti)
– posture I also love my non pregnant ladies!Young or peri/post menopausal, those who have or have not given birth – I can help.I also specialise in ;Overactive Pelvic floor
– which may or may not lead to bowel problems.Urinary problems
– urgency and stress incontinence.I am very passionate about women’s health and feel we ladies deserve specialist care.
If you would like a free, confidential chat please feel free to call me.
Don’t feel embarrassed or worried; I promise I have seen it all before and would feel honoured to help you.
