A: My area of special interest is the pelvic floor/pelvis - such a vital structure in so many ways and affected by childbirth , lifestyle, menopause, sport and so much more - it can be the missing link within other problems eg back pain. I have worked within MSK for most of my working life and have found with this back ground I am able to see the link between pelvic floor disfunction and other issues in many cases. I have 3 children of my own I also have a special interest in Ankylosing Spondylitis and have a background training in pilates mat work which I find very helpful in exercise prescription together with more recent evidence on strength training and resistance
