We put our bodies through an extraordinary range of tasks.
Think about what you did today.
Did you wake up with some aches that you brushed right past?
Did your day involve pacing as you rocked a baby to sleep in your arms? Hunching over to breastfeed your baby? Lifting little ones in and out of cots and onto change tables? Pushing a heavy pram up a hill? Bending down constantly to pick up toys and messes made throughout the house? Giving piggybacks? Trying to work out with your assortment of at-home gym equipment? Or attempting to work from home at a probably less than ergonomically-ideal set-up?
If you’re a pregnant mama then your body is growing and changing even before you begin your day. And post-pregnancy there’s often a lot of work to be done to help it recover from the rigours of giving birth.
As mums, we often accept the pains associated with our daily tasks as part of the job, at least until some major pain strikes.
Our families lives so often revolve around us getting on with life, so we tend to ignore smaller pains like ongoing tension in our neck and shoulders, and we treat headaches with paracetamol instead of addressing their root cause.
Mums are the ultimate “Essential workers”.
Taking care of our bodies, so that we can go on doing the umpteen things we do in a day is one of the most selfless acts of all.
And it’s important that when you do seek support, you do it from experts who understand your pains and specialise in treating your particular ailments.
Who can we turn to?
Women in Focus Physio are the experts you can count on. They’re an industry-leading clinic run by women for women. They understand every woman’s body is different and believe that a woman’s body is a magnificent interaction between her pelvic floor, musculoskeletal system, visceral system, hormones and emotions.
About Women in Focus
Since 2012 they’ve been operating out of Bondi and they’ve now brought their special brand of care to the Sutherland Shire.
The consultations they provide are more than just a look at your physical complaints and they’ll take the time to discuss your unique medical history, different beliefs, movement patterns and goals to provide a unique, tailored treatment approach.
You’ll benefit from the years of experience in public health and private physiotherapy clinics that the clinic directors Lyz Evans and Melissa Chapman bring with them. As well as from their postgraduate qualifications specialising in women’s health, pelvic and spinal physiotherapy.
Shire locals Sharyn Wappett and Letitia Reus will also be joining the team in Miranda to offer comprehensive cancer and lymphoedema services.
