Brooke: Owner and Director - Women's Health Physiotherapist

 

I always knew that physiotherapy was my dream job; I was a representative netball player who hit the ground hard and broke my arms 4 times, had ankle, knee and hip injuries (the usual netballer's body) and subsequently fell in love with the wonderful world of physiotherapy.

It wasn't until my third year of university  in 2015 that I fell in love with women's health, and knew this was my passion.

 

Having dealt with endometriosis, IBS and pelvic pain, I resonated with a lot of the areas discussed in women's health, and knew that I wanted to help women who have struggled with these conditions, as well as all conditions that affect women specifically. I love all things pregnancy, and thoroughly enjoy working alongside women in their postnatal journey.

Anyone who knows me, knows how regularly I will find ways to discuss bowel motions, and that there is no such thing as TMI (too much information) once you step inside my door. My main focus in working with women is helping them to feel confident, empowered, and amazed at what their bodies can accomplish. 

 

I want all women to feel comfortable once they step through my door, knowing that no question is too silly, no goal unattainable, and there is no embarrassment having yourself assessed.

Whether you want assistance throughout pregnancy, hope to get back to exercise postnatally, or are experiencing pain with intercourse, I would love to help you achieve your goals.

Heather: Womens Health Physiotherapist

Heather has been working in the area of women’s health physiotherapy for over 6 years. Having three young children herself she knows what it’s like to juggle prioritizing your health while also caring for your family. 

 

She is passionate about helping women move comfortably throughout pregnancy and continuing to be physically active in preparation for labour and then transitioning into motherhood, empowering new Mum’s to work towards their goals in recovery and exercise. 

 

Heather knows that the journey into parenthood can be full of the unexpected and loves working with women to achieve their goals, whatever they may be.

Whether women simply want to be stronger for the physical task of caring for their baby (those prams are heavy!) or return to exercise Heather loves helping women work towards their goals, allowing them time and space to prioritize themselves. 

 

When not in the clinic Heather loves spending time with her young family while finding time to enjoy running and is an avid netball player and fan.

 

Ruth: Womens Health Physiotherapist

Ruth has been working as a physiotherapist for more than 10 years and has been a team member with HerHealth since August. Everyone who has met her will know that she is vibrant, full of knowledge and passion for helping women.

 

‘I absolutely love my job and have had the privilege of working across many parts of Australia and overseas with some of the most highly skilled professionals in our field. I have had the opportunity to work in many different fields of physiotherapy including intensive care and trauma settings, hospital and community based rehabilitation for brain injuries, amputees and our aged population. I have also worked extensively with kids treating a wide range of paediatric conditions. 

My love and passion for women's health comes from my long held commitment to work with women to empower, support and assist them in developing their own capacity to manage their health well. This allows women to lead their best lives, dream big and achieve great things.

As a mum of three young boys I also relate to many of the challenges that women can experience, this helps me to design treatment plans that are not only best practice but are achievable too.’

Nicole: Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist 

Nicole is an experienced physiotherapist who is very passionate about supporting and inspiring women to admire their bodies, because they truly are incredible!

 

She has been working as a physiotherapist and clinical pilates instructor in Western Sydney for the last 6 years.  Having been an avid dancer from a young age, she learnt all about the importance of patience and persistence with regards to the body’s limitations and injuries. This was when she fell in love with physiotherapy (and pilates!).  After the many long hours of rehabilitation with her own physiotherapist in her teens she realised that she wanted to be that same guide to others. To be the person to encourage strength and growth, and to remind women of their body and mind’s resilience, even in the face of changes over the lifespan. 

 

Having been surrounded by many friends and sisters who have experienced pelvic issues, Nicole understands how considerably these conditions can impact your life, and also how stigmatising and overwhelming it can be to reach out and seek guidance. She knows how important it is to return to the activities that are meaningful to you, and she is more than willing to be your guide on this journey. 

 

During her time out of the clinic, Nicole can be found going for a run with her hyperactive pup ‘Harley’, training at the gym or catching up with girlfriends at the local coffee shop.
