In 2015 when we opened Pinnacle Physio, our vision was to offer a specialised and holistic women's health physiotherapy service to women in the central west.
All of the treatment services listed below have been developed by our team of Physiotherapists trained in women's health and pelvic floor physiotherapy including Kylie Watkins, Jo Fairfax, Kate Murphy (currently on maternity leave), Emily O'Neil and Eloise Borschtsch.
You can click on the Physio Bookings button above to book a consultation online or please call and speak with our receptionists if you require more information or you would prefer to make a booking over the phone.
Common problems we see in pregnancy include pelvic girdle pain (SIJ and pubic symphysis), back pain, hip pain when sleeping on side, and abdominal discomfort. We also provide pelvic floor education and assessment to prepare for vaginal delivery. We see new mums for management of pelvic floor trauma/symptoms related to their delivery, abdominal muscle separation, caesarean scar pain and inflammatory breast conditions. Please click here for more information.
Blocked ducts, engorgement and mastitis are common problems for breast feeding mothers and many women are keen to seek management options that can help reduce the need to take antibiotics. Physio management of these conditions involves ultrasound (to help resolve the blockage), lymphatic massage techniques, exercises, taping and close consultation with lactation consultants, midwives, GP's and Obstetricians. Although some women will require antibiotic management of infective mastitis, not all mastitis is infective (it is often inflammatory) and can be well managed with physiotherapy. A big focus of our treatment is to empower women to prevent and manage any recurrences. Please click here for more information.
