Meet our Physio Rani who has a special interest in Women's Health.
Rani has a special gift of making you feel comfortable
No need to feel nervous when attending a Women’s Health related appointment when you’re seeing Rani. She is every colour of kind and puts our patients at ease immediately; and treats a wide array of female-based concerns with respect.
Rani has a strong musculoskeletal and exercise rehabilitation background, which means she takes all your pain and function into her treatment plans, working towards your specific goals.
For some examinations we may require you to have a visit with your GP to clear other conditions (e.g. with urinary incontinence it is important to rule out UTI’s). Rani will let you know if this is required.

Three Stages of Treatment
Pain is often the last symptom to arrive and the first to go. This often tricks the owner of an injury (you) into stopping treatment before the underlying causes have either completely resolved or you are in control of them. Without getting to this point there is a risk of re-injury.
As a result we look at your treatment over three phases to get the best result
Listen to how your problem happened and how it is affecting you
Determine what are the aggravating factors
Mobility and mechanics of the affected area
Strength and endurance of the muscle
