WHAT IS IT?
The Strong Body Pregnancy Package includes three individual consultations with one of our specially trained Women’s Health physiotherapists who will assess and treat you both pre- and/or post-natally. This package is targeted at new mums and mums-to-be wanting to improve, or maintain, their pelvic health, resolve any pregnancy related aches or pains and ensure they are following a safe exercise regime.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
In your initial assessment a full history will be taken of your current and/or previous pregnancies. You will be asked about any pregnancy related pain, injury or pelvic floor issues (including leakage, urgency and/or pain). An internal examination is an optional part of this package to assess and grade the strength of your pelvic floor. You will be screened for separation of the abdominal wall and guided through a safe exercise programme targeted at restoring your body to it’s fullest health.

”Top class service from Michael Gallagher - many times over the years has "fixed me" with sensible and practical solutions and advice, including one occasion where others had suggested more drastic actions which would have had serious implications for myself. Highly recommended!Barry O'Donoghue
”Thanks so much to Darcy for the physio this week and last. I feel fantastic!. I’ve been able to sleep pain-free and dance with my babies again!. Very very happy with the service.Ann Marie Gilmore
”Thanks to Michael and the team at Baily Point Physio. After visiting them in August with knee problems they sorted me out with orthotic insoles and an exercise routine. Since then (2months ago) I have climbed Kilimanjaro twice with no knee problems – a great result. Highly recommend them.Duncan Warner
