Physiotherapy, often referred to as physical therapy, is a method of healthcare focused on improving and restoring movement and function to individuals affected by injury, illness, or disability. Utilizing a variety of techniques, exercises, and modalities, physiotherapists work closely with patients to alleviate pain, enhance mobility, and promote overall physical well-being. Whether recovering from surgery, managing pregnant conditions, or seeking to optimize childhood development, physiotherapy offers personalized treatment plans tailored to each individual’s unique needs and goals.

Nest’s physiotherapist Tia is skilled in supporting pelvic floor health, pediatric concerns, neuromuscular and musculoskeletal conditions, and pregnancy and postpartum discomfort.

The image could be described as a physical therapy session focusing on pelvic floor exercises, where a woman is performing a hands-and-knees exercise under the guidance of her therapist. The presence of a pelvic model suggests the therapy is educational, aiding the woman in understanding her body better as she strengthens her pelvic muscles. The home setting indicates a comfortable, private environment, possibly reflecting a personalized, in-home care scenario.
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

Pelvic health or pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialized area of physiotherapy focused on assessing and treating conditions related to the pelvic region, including the pelvis, lower back, hips, and abdomen.

This branch of physiotherapy addresses a wide range of issues, such as pelvic pain, urinary or fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic floor dysfunction, and sexual dysfunction.

Pelvic health physiotherapists are highly trained professionals who use a combination of manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, biofeedback, and education to help patients regain control and function in the pelvic area.

By providing individualized treatment plans and comprehensive support, pelvic health physiotherapy aims to improve quality of life, restore confidence, and empower individuals to live actively and comfortably. Nest’s physiotherapist Tia supports pelvic health concerns in all sexes, genders, and ages.

Pediatric Physical Health

Pediatric physiotherapy focuses on assessing and treating children from infancy through adolescence, addressing a wide range of concerns that can affect a child’s physical development and function.

From infancy, pediatric physiotherapists may work with infants who have conditions such as torticollis, plagiocephaly (aka flat head syndrome), or developmental delays to optimize motor skills and achieve developmental milestones including rolling, sitting, crawling, walking, and such forth.

As children grow into childhood and adolescence, pediatric physiotherapy may address concerns such as toilet refusal or bedwetting, sports injuries, orthopedic conditions, neurological disorders such as cerebral palsy, coordination difficulties, and musculoskeletal issues.

Pediatric physiotherapists employ a variety of techniques tailored to the unique needs of children, including therapeutic exercises, play-based activities, manual therapy, and specialized equipment. By providing early intervention, support, and education, pediatric physiotherapy aims to promote optimal physical development, enhance mobility, improve functional abilities, and empower children to participate fully in activities at home, school, and in the community.

Nest’s physiotherapist Tia is experienced in treating acute and chronic pediatric conditions, from mild onset of symptoms to more medically complicated cases.

Neuromuscular and Musculoskeletal Conditions

Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in the management and treatment of both neuromuscular disorders and musculoskeletal concerns, providing specialized care to improve function, alleviate pain, and enhance quality of life.

For individuals with neuromuscular disorders such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease, or muscular dystrophy, physiotherapy focuses on maintaining or improving mobility, strength, balance, and coordination through targeted exercises, gait training, and functional activities.

In the case of musculoskeletal concerns, including conditions like osteoarthritis, sprains, strains, or post-operative rehabilitation, physiotherapy aims to reduce pain, restore joint mobility, and improve muscle strength and flexibility.

Through a combination of manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, ergonomic education, and lifestyle modifications, physiotherapists work closely with patients to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to their specific needs and goals. By addressing both the underlying pathology and its impact on function, physiotherapy enables individuals with neuromuscular disorders and musculoskeletal concerns to regain independence, maximize mobility, and enhance overall well-being.


Pregnancy and Postpartum Discomfort

Physiotherapy during pregnancy and postpartum plays a crucial role in addressing discomfort and promoting overall well-being for expecting and new mothers/parents.

During pregnancy, physiotherapy focuses on relieving common discomforts such as back pain, pelvic girdle pain, and postural changes through gentle exercises, stretches, and manual therapy techniques. These interventions aim to improve posture, strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, and enhance flexibility, thus easing the strain on the body as it accommodates the growing baby. Additionally, physiotherapists provide education on safe body mechanics and ergonomic principles to prevent injury and optimize comfort during daily activities.

In the postpartum period, physiotherapy assists in the recovery process by addressing issues like abdominal muscle separation (diastasis recti), pelvic floor dysfunction, and musculoskeletal pain. Specialized exercises, pelvic floor rehabilitation, and manual therapy techniques help restore muscle strength and function, improve pelvic stability, and alleviate discomfort associated with childbirth. Moreover, physiotherapists offer guidance on gradual return to physical activity and provide support for breastfeeding positions and lifting techniques to prevent strain on the body. Overall, physiotherapy plays a vital role in promoting a smoother pregnancy experience and facilitating a faster, more comfortable recovery postpartum.
