PELVIC HEALTH PHYSIOTHERAPY SERVICES

PELVIC PAIN

Treatment of any issues caused by problems of the pelvis or bladder.

One in three women will suffer from a pelvic floor related issue at some stage in their lives.

PREGNANCY

Pregnancy is a wonderful time in a woman’s life and your body will undergo a huge amount of change.

This change can create pregnancy related aches and pains as well as issues with bladder, bowel and pelvic floor dysfunction. 

MUMMY MOT

Pregnancy and childbirth can affect a woman’s body dramatically. Posture is altered, muscles weaken and tissue can be traumatised. Juggling new baby and trying to get your body back is challenging and without guidance can also exacerbate these weaknesses.

The Mummy MOT is an in-depth postnatal assessment that assesses posture, scar sites, the strength, activation and function of all muscles including the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles following childbirth. It is suitable any time from 6 weeks postnatal.

POST NATAL

After having a baby most women may experience a weakness in either the tummy or pelvic floor area which can create instability and affect core strength. The result may be altered transfer load, back pain, pelvic pain, and bladder and bowel issues.

TESTIMONIALS

Just to say, thank you both so much for your running technique/run-planning input. I ran Oxford Half yesterday in a pb of 1.35.04 (pb by about 2 minutes, which had been my aspiration for ages) – totally unexpected given my main goal was to get round uninjured.

SOPHIE

SOPHIE

I have been seeing Amy at a Body Logic Health for the last few months regardinglongstanding hip and back pain from childhood pelvic surgery. Amy quicklygot to the route of the pain and has lessened it considerably. She has alsogiven me exercises to strengthen the area and a pathway to get back intoexercise. She is amazing!

SASHA

 

My 10k time used to be about 55min, I ran a PB when I last saw you at Clapham - 50m13 (pretty disappointed not to go sub 50m). My main goals from Running Evolution have been to run injury free - I have run more this year than any other year

 

NEIL

Amy, my physiotherapist, has been amazing clearly explaining each stage of the treatment & rehabilitation program with patience and a fun and enthusiastic manner. Setting progressive and varied exercises to build strength & stability for my return to competitive racket sports and running.This manner has been instrumental in maintaining motivation throughout the process and it has been extremely rewarding to see the considerable progress made because of this.

ANDY

In terms of rehabilitation offering, I feel I have had access to a 360’ program, as in addition to the physiotherapy my posture, walking and running has been videoed and analysed which has transformed my gait and running technique to minimise further injury.I have also had access to sports massages to maintain flexibility to maximise the results of the rehabilitation and strengthening exercises at home and in their fantastic gym and exercise area all on site.A big thank you to the whole team.

DEREK

For the previous two months I had been hobbling around like Quasimodo’s elder sister. Three months and eight treatments later, reinforced by "Walking Retraining" - to correct my gait and posture, I feel like a new woman. My hip is all but better, my back hasn’t been so good in years and my mojo has returned

DR MILLER

Thanks for all your help – its pretty impressive to think that my first lesson was on the 27th January and that I managed a sub 3hr 30 marathon just over 3 months later. I’d struggled to run much from mid-December last year so to get to Hamburg in good shape felt like a race against time. There’s no doubt in my mind that the lessons made all the difference.

ANDREW

The Performance Matrix, an individualised programme, which has targeted my weak areas in order that I can attain new goals: cycling, yoga and 13 hour shifts on my feet!!! My long term goal is to get back skiing which I can now see is a possibility. And the best bit - I no longer have to spend 30 minutes stretching each day to relieve my pain ?

RACHEL

Running Evolution has adapted my technique immeasurably to run longer distances consistently faster all while remaining injury free - I am simply running better than I ever have'

SIMON

 

I think everyone who enjoys running or intends to run regularly should definitely attend Running Evolution. I also firmly believe that Running Evolution is something we should have all gone through as kids!’

TERESA

Without having done the Performance Matrix movement screen, I would never have been able to remain injury free while training for and running the London marathon this year. You certainly have to commit to doing the exercises but the results have allowed me to feel that I am in the best shape I could possibly be

LOUISA

I was referred to you by my doctor as I had an achilles tendon injury caused by road running. I first had 6 physio sessions, the goal was to eliminate the discomfort and get me back on the ‘road’. During the initial physio sessions it became clear that my running technique contributed to my injury so Paul recommended your run clinic. Moving from physio to run clinic was a smooth transition, after 7 sessions with Laura I now feel much stronger and this has been reflected in my run times. The achilles remains in good shape. All in all an ...

MARK

My son James attended the Running Evolution and was coached by Sam. During his six lessons, James completely changed his running style and dramatically increased his speed. A member of Arsenal Football Academy, his season scores on Nike Testing all improved, as well as, his balance and co-ordination. In such as short period of time, it’s made a dramatic change in James as an athlete. I can’t thank the Running Evolution enough.
