30 Aug Educating and Empowering: Erin’s Mission to Enhance Women’s Health through Physiotherapy
Women’s health is a crucial aspect of overall well-being, and specialised physiotherapy plays a pivotal role in addressing women’s specific needs. At Amelie Private Erin is our passionate and dedicated physiotherapist with a special interest in Women’s Health. She offers her expertise to empower women and promote their optimal health. With her extensive knowledge and holistic approach to treatment, Erin is committed to providing comprehensive care that goes beyond the conventional boundaries of physiotherapy.
Erin’s Background and Expertise:
Erin started her journey in physiotherapy in a musculoskeletal and sports setting before transitioning into Women’s Health Physiotherapy. This gives Erin a unique skill set that enriches her work in women’s health and her clinical skills allow her to treat the whole body – internally and externally. It is her belief that one symptom can present a number of causes and the pelvic floor and external pelvic muscles often overlap with diagnosis and treatment.
Erin’s skill set allows her to treat the following conditions.
Bladder Dysfunction: Including stress and urgency incontinence, overactive bladder
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pregnancy Care: Including musculoskeletal pain, pelvic girdle pain, SIJ dysfunction and PSD.
Pre-natal Pelvic floor: Including PF checks and birth planning
Post-natal Assessment and Recovery: Including pelvic floor assessments. Abdominal assessment and mastitis treatment
All Pelvic Floor Dysfunction across the lifespan including; menopause
Holistic Approach to Physiotherapy:
Erin firmly believes in the power of holistic care and its impact on women’s health. Her approach considers the entire body, recognising that issues in one area can have far-reaching effects. By thoroughly assessing each patient’s condition, Erin identifies and addresses any underlying musculoskeletal imbalances or dysfunctions, which can often contribute to pelvic floor-related issues. This comprehensive approach helps patients achieve sustainable outcomes and improve their overall quality of life.
Postpartum Care and Rehabilitation:
One area where Erin’s passion shines is in assisting postpartum patients on their journey to recovery. She understands the physical and emotional challenges that women face during this transformative period. Erin works closely with her patients, providing personalised care to help them regain strength, functionality, and confidence. Whether it’s addressing diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse, or pelvic floor weakness, Erin tailors her treatment plans to meet each woman’s unique needs, supporting them as they reclaim their physical and emotional well-being and return to their postpartum goals.
Patient Education and Empowerment:
Erin believes that education is a vital component of empowering her patients. She equips women with the knowledge and tools they need to understand their bodies better and actively participate in their healing process.
Erin’s approach is particularly significant during and after pregnancy when women experience significant changes in their bodies. By educating her patients about the physiological changes that occur during pregnancy and postpartum, Erin empowers them to make informed decisions about their health. She guides them through exercises and self-care techniques that promote a safe and healthy recovery, enabling women to navigate this transformative journey with confidence.
This approach is also a vital component when treating chronic pain conditions; including endometriosis. These conditions are always multifactorial and multidisciplinary in the approach to correct diagnosis and management. Erin has a wonderful working relationship with local GPs, gynaecologists, allied health and pain specialists to ensure continuity in her patient’s care.
At Amelie Private, Erin’s expertise and compassionate care contribute to a comprehensive approach to women’s health. Her dedication to empowering women extends beyond the treatment room, creating a lasting impact on their lives. Whether it’s through postpartum care, education, or holistic treatment, Erin plays a vital role in supporting women’s health and well-being at every stage of life.
