No one ever talks about Women’s Health problems. But we have Physiotherapists who can help with incontinence and other musculoskeletal conditions like pregnancy related pains. Incontinence is a hidden problem. But if you leak a little when you cough, laugh or sneeze there may be a chance that you have Stress Incontinence. Luckily, medical science has advanced beyond just offering you pads and telling you to get on with it. Specialist Physiotherapy is often a large part of the solution. Our highly trained female Physiotherapists will assess you and treat you with dignity and respect and more importantly help you with this debilitating and sometimes embarrassing problem.

In addition, our Physiotherapists see patients following hysterectomies, prolapses or post-episiotomy, and can treat patients with acute or chronic pelvic pain, Symphysis Pubis dysfunction (SPD) and back pain related to pregnancy.

It use to be accepted that back pain in pregnancy was to be expected and you just had to accept it – what rubbish! Pregnant women, just like everyone else get episodes of back pain. Physiotherapists can identify whether you have an instability problem due to hormonal changes or whether a stiff joint may be causing you pain. Please feel free to ask us about treatments and don’t suffer in silence! Our Physiotherapists work closely with local GP’s and Consultant Gynaecologists and Obstetricians.

The Experts…

Lucy Allen

BSc MCSP

Lucy qualified as a physiotherapist from the University of Birmingham in 2009. Over the last 8 years she has worked across South Wales and Oxford before moving to London to start at St Marks Hospital in Harrow. Coming from an experienced musculoskeletal and sporting background, Lucy developed a passion for treating women with pelvic girdle pain both ante and postnatally; helping them continue to lead an active lifestyle.

This enthusiasm for pelvic health led Lucy to specialise in Women’s and Men’s Health with a special interest in pelvic floor dysfunction and colorectal disorders. Lucy is dedicated to helping her patients become confident in their symptom management and to regain control of intimate issues such as incontinence and sexual dysfunction.
