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.

Jessica* was keen to return to run club after her second pregnancy🤰🏼
She was diligent with her rehab and had achieved her goal of running run club 2-3x week by 16-weeks post-partum.
Everyone's timeline for returning to running is different, just like their pregnancy, birth and post-partum recovery is different!
If you are keen to return to running post-partum, chat to your physio about a realistic return to running plan during your pregnancy... then commit to the process post-partum and don't compare yourself to those around you (or on social media)!📱...
Our patients are often very focused on their pelvic floor strength and abdominal control (or abdominal separation) for their return to running (or the gym)...but have you considered some other basic strength work to ensure your legs are ready for running? 💪🏼
Based on our clinical guidelines for returning to running post-partum, here are some baseline measures that you should be able to tick off before considering running (bear in mind that depending on your level of running and your goals, these measures may be too easy and we would give you come harder ones to achieve!!)
1. 20 x reps of single leg calf raises
2. 20 x reps single leg glute bridges
3. 20 x reps single leg sit-to-stand to a chair
4. 20 x reps sidelying leg lifts
Often these single leg exercises are too difficult in the early post-partum, so along with your pelvic floor and/or abdominal exercises, your physio will start you on the right level of strength exercises for your body. Make sure to ask your physio for some strength exercises for your legs if your goal is to return to running! 😄...
At Fit and Flow Physiotherapy, we believe that everyone should be supported and guided to achieve their goals and become the best version of themselves😄
We are passionate in supporting you on this journey - as physios, athletes, mums and active individuals - we understand what it’s like to feel limited, and for your body to not allow you to achieve your best 🤽🏽♀️🚴🏻🏌🏾♂️🏂
We want to help every member of your family to achieve their best... whether it's your bub 👶🏼 who isn't rolling yet, your teen who is getting knee pain with oz-tag 🏃🏾♀️, a mum who is returning to the gym 🏋🏼♀️ or running post-partum or even just your everyday person who wants to walk around the block easily each morning!
