PHYSIOTHERAPY

At Pilates Physiotherapy Cork our mission is to empower people with knowledge and skills to move well, feel well and live well.

Understanding what is important to you, your issues, your concerns, your motivations and your goals, this is what is important to us. This is our style of Physiotherapy and our work centres around this.

We understand everyone is unique. We understand everyone has different issues, concerns, restrictions, abilities and interests.

By taking the time to understand you, your goals, your likes (and dislikes), we can help you to navigate your own path to success; with all the treatment, knowledge and tools you may need for that journey.

During an episode of back or spinal pain many things can be affected, including the way we move, the way we feel about our spine and the way we engage in day to day activities.   If back pain persists it may become associated with reduced activity and fitness levels, lower mood and poorer sleep patterns, all of which may further exacerbate the pain experienced.

Back or spinal pain is extremely common. In most cases the causes are not serious, despite the levels of pain experienced. Often the amount of pain experienced does not correlate with actual physical ‘damage’ or harm. 

Successful long-term management of back or spinal pain requires us to understand the individual and their pain pattern better and to look at what factors may be influencing symptoms.  It’s important then to re- build confidence in ability and return to activities that individuals find important and meaningful. 

We have expert Chartered Physiotherapists in the clinic who have many years experience working with pain conditions. We will help to create an individual programme with you, for you and to give you the tools you need to achieve your long term goals.

At Pilates Physiotherapy Cork our Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists are here for you if you have any aches or pains; or muscle, bone or sports injuries.

We are experts in assessing, diagnosing and helping you to manage your injury or issues.  Following a thorough initial consultation, we will provide you with practical advice based on up to date research, to help you manage your rehab and recovery whatever your goals are.  

We can provide manual hands-on therapy, in conjunction with an individualised exercise programme, to help you to move, decrease pain and help you to return to full function and performance. 

Many women can experience issues such as incontinence, pelvic pain or prolapse at some stage in their lives and whilst these are all relatively common problems, there are still many women who learn to live with these issues rather than getting them treated.

The impact on quality of life can be dramatic once women’s health issues are dealt with appropriately and professionally. At Pilates Physiotherapy Cork we have a team of experienced Women’s Health Chartered Physiotherapists who are a qualified to deal with the above issues.

Many women can experience pain during their pregnancy. Whilst this is quite common it is important to note that you don’t have to just put up with it, very often Physiotherapy can make a significant difference. Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapists are equipped to thoroughly assess, diagnose and treat pregnancy related pain, pelvic girdle pain, incontinence and other ante-natal pelvic health issues.

If you are suffering with any of the above during your pregnancy or even if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Given the changes your body goes through when you are pregnant and then the impact of labour and birth, it can be helpful and reassuring for women to have access to a thorough and informative postnatal assessment. At Pilates Physiotherapy Cork we offer a  our Mummy NCT  for all postnatal women. 

From assessing the pelvic floor, the abdomen, bladder and bowel function, through to posture, wellbeing, physical fitness and return to exercise postpartum, there is a lot that can be checked and examined. Back pain, pelvic pain, pain with intercourse, incontinence, diastasis recti and other common postnatal issues can all be helped with the right assessment, advice, treatment and exercise.  

We are passionate about empowering and facilitating postnatal women. We appreciate the realities of being a mother and recognise your individual goals as a woman.

Our specialist Mummy NCT is designed to help postnatal women realise their potential and optimise their recovery on their postnatal journey.
