Covid-19 Update

For anyone visiting our clinic, please be reassured that we have put in place the following checks and procedures to ensure the clinic remains covid-secure:

  • Appointment times have been extended to allow for full sanitisation of rooms between clients
  • Masks can be worn by our therapists if requested
  • We are operating a mask friendly policy for customers. It is your choice if you wish to wear one.
  • Appointment times are staggered to reduce interaction in the reception.
  • The waiting area has been adapted to provide plenty of space.
  • We have a cash-free policy and have put in place a hygiene screen at reception.

Throughout all of this, we will continue to do everything we possibly can for our community of clients who need help more than ever!

What should you expect during your appointment?

After a warm introduction, a member of your team will begin by initially asking you a series of questions about your basic health, along with the problem you’re currently experiencing. Rest assured you will be able to discuss your symptoms in complete confidence to allow a full assessment of your situation.

Following this initial discussion, an examination will take place, which may require you to undress to your underwear or shorts and vest. This is to allow us to better understand what is affecting your movement and posture. During this examination, you may be asked to move into different positions, such as standing or lying down, which we will do only moderately and considerately if you are in any discomfort. For pelvic floor issues, we may offer you an internal examination, which normally takes 5-10 minutes and should not be painful.

We aim to provide an environment in which you feel comfortable and confident to explore your symptoms and ultimately help you achieve the freedom to enjoy your daily life. You are, of course, more than welcome to a friend or family member along with your treatment for support.

How will treatment be able to help your symptoms?

Our team will work with you to put together a personalised plan. Depending on your symptoms and objectives for treatment, this plan could help you with such things as the following:

  • Reducing leakage through muscle training, improving your posture and breathing control.
  • Developing strategies to help you suppress bladder and bowel urgency.
  • Reducing pelvic pain in pregnancy and helping you stay active in your pregnancy.
  • Creating a personalised Pilates-based exercise programme for pregnancy and postnatally.
  • Reducing your tummy gap postnatally as quickly and effectively as possible.
  • Gives you an understanding of what influences your symptoms and how to change them.
  • Reducing any discomfort in your pelvis, groin or vagina to allow you to enjoy physical activity and sex.
  • Learning strategies and improving the ability of your body to empty your bladder and bowel effectively.
  • Ensuring you’re able to do the physical activity you love without the fear of symptoms limiting you.
  • Helping you prevent a prolapse from developing or worsening, optimising your menopause journey

Women’s Health Testimonials

“After having my second child in September 2017 I decided to book in to see Emily Elgar, specialist women’s health physiotherapist at Katie Bell Physiotherapy and Wellness. I wanted to return to a moderate level of fitness (be able to run 10km again), make sure that I would not cause any further or lasting damage and ensure I wasn’t returning to activity too soon post baby. I had a good pregnancy and labour but once again tore internal muscles when giving birth to my second baby, just like my first and I felt that my stomach muscles were weak too.

Emily was lovely and made me feel comfortable straight away. It’s not easy talking to someone else about your private areas but Emily made it very easy. We talked through my pregnancy, birth and post birth problems, Emily covered all areas. Emily was able to feel my stomach muscles to assess how much they had torn through my pregnancy and also provide me with exercises and advice to ensure they were healing well and I wasn’t causing any further damage. Emily also carried out an internal examination to assess how strong my pelvic floor muscles were, how well they were healing post baby and how to increase my pelvic floor strength to ensure I was able to return to running, jumping etc.

I have completed 24 weeks of Pilates classes with Emily. Even though I was in a class environment (no more than 10 in a class) Emily always made sure I was working at the appropriate level and carrying out the exercises properly. I also saw Emily 1:1 for a few sessions to track my progress and provide me with specific exercises to help me improve my strength in my pelvic floor, abdominals and hips.

I am very happy with how far I have come. It’s scary how much strength and tone you lose when you have a baby and it was important to me to return to sport as it’s something I enjoy. I have now returned to running and currently increased my distance to 7km only 7 months post birth. I’m working up to my 10km goal. At 5 months I started lifting weights again at the gym and feel much stronger during my Pilates classes. I’m very happy with the progress I have made and feel that I am continuing to get stronger week on week. Even though I am a mum of two, it’s important to make some time for yourself and still set personal goals.”
