After nearly 2 years of not being able to run Ciaran and Bek have helped me through my journey. Despite a number of misdiagnoses from other physio's, Ciaran found the underlying injury and worked closely with my coach and specialist to make sure my rehab was aiding my recovery and getting me back into the sports I love.

After receiving treatment from the team at Fit and Flow for a torn hamstring, my running times are similar, if not faster than they were before my injury and I’m back doing my normal exercises without any pain.
Brian Culla | Hamstring injury during CrossFit training
I have had three courses of treatment at Fit and Flow Physiotherapy and each has been a success. Ciaran is a dedicated and gifted clinician and her whole team are focused on helping their patients on the road to recovery.

Great culture and staff are super professional. Would highly recommend for anyone with niggly or long-term injuries, was able to learn a lot about my injury and had the continued support of everyone there at the practice!!

Ciaran has treated me for many years for ongoing ailments relating to my body type, the occasional injury and more recently pregnancy and post pregnancy recovery.

What will your physio take you through in order to reduce the symptoms of OAB?
Whilst there are a number of different treatment strategies your physio may employ, these differ depending on the individual patient, their history and their presentation! 👧🏾👩🏼🦱👩🏼🦰
Your physio will start by taking a detailed history, asking you questions about your bladder and bowel habits and other symptoms or past medical history relevant to your presentation.
From there, your physio will often get you to complete a bladder diary, tracking your fluid intake (types and amount), urine output and any symptoms you experience (urgency). Your physio will be able to determine a lot from your bladder diary, including if any lifestyle changes need to be made - e.g. reducing caffeine or reducing fluid intake before bedtime 😴🥱
They may need to help you improve your pelvic floor strength, manage any constipation, start a bladder training program or learn different strategies to defer when you don't really need to go to the toilet!
If these first line management techniques have been exhausted or are not appropriate, your physio will also work with other treatment modalities to try and improve your outcomes! 😃...
In September 2017, our patient Roy was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive blood cancer and had to undergo a bone marrow transplant.
To raise money for the Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation, Roy will be walking from Menai to Cronulla on Sunday 14th November.
We, as a clinic, will be joining Roy at Caringbah to walk with him! We encourage people who would like to donate to do so via the link in our bio, or if you'd like to help in some other way, you're welcome to get into contact with us by email at email@example.com

Overactive Bladder describes urinary symptoms that people may experience, these include:
1. A sudden, strong, un-deferrable need to urinate (URGENCY)
2. Increased number of times needed to pass urine in the day or night (FREQUENCY)
It may be associated with some incontinence (leakage), which is called urge incontinence.
Urge incontinence becomes more common as we get older. Symptoms are often worsened by caffeine consumption, carbonated drinks, alcohol, smoking and artificial sweeteners 🤪😵💫
We will go into common physiotherapy management of OAB in the following post, but often we start with getting the patient to track their fluid intake, urine output and symptoms over a number of days. We may also suggest that the person trial reducing caffeine or the intake of other substances listed above!...
