"Many women suffer with musculoskeletal pain in pregnancy and during the post-natal period. They assume they are a normal and part of pregnancy, continuing with everyday life accepting the discomfort and pain. From my experience, a lack of knowledge that safe and effective treatment is available, or often embarrassment, prevent them from acting. Specialist physiotherapy treatment can help. And at all stages of a women’s life. Physio can significantly improve quality of life and help women flourish again.”

Our health plans include video GP and video physiotherapy assessment services, to help you proactively take control of your health. We also offer money back towards private physiotherapy treatment, diagnostic appointments and scans so that you can physically see a professional should a video consultation not be sufficient, without worrying about all the costs.
