EMMA BROCKWELL

From my practice in Godstone, Surrey, I treat women of all ages, specialising in problems related to the pelvic floor and pelvis; including urinary and faecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, constipation, painful intercourse as well as aches and pains during and after pregnancy.

These common issues can affect any woman of any age but they are stigmatised and taboo and therefore not always addressed and well managed. Often they can be treated effectively with physiotherapy.

As an experienced women’s health physiotherapist, I can help you understand and improve your pelvic health symptoms.  I believe that this is a much needed, somewhat neglected area of women’s wellbeing, and all too often women suffer in silence. However, there really is no need to ignore the symptoms you may have any longer.  I promise to listen to your whole story as well as directing questions to help me truly understand what you are going through. Together we will look at all aspects of your life and health so we can formulate a plan together

CHRISSIE EDLEY PHYSIOTHERAPY – BUCKINGHAMSHIRE 

I decided to specialise in pelvic health physiotherapy in 2009, following a background in musculoskeletal physiotherapy due to the lack of resource and awareness locally in supporting women with what are often thought of as ‘taboo’ symptoms.
I am passionate about supporting patients through their journey – whatever that may be.
For many women the pregnancy and postnatal experience is not always as they expect it to be, but being able to provide support and guidance to women through their choices to improve and relieve symptoms is paramount to me.
I have gained a huge amount of postgraduate experience over the past 12 years gaining skills and knowledge to treat pelvic floor function and dysfunction for women at any stage of life – whether it be bladder and bowel issues, prolapse, pain, sexual dysfunction or intimacy/relationship issues – often these symptoms relate to recent childbirth trauma.
I use a combination of manual therapy, taping, exercise, acupuncture and electro acupuncture (PTNS) to support my patients in their symptom recovery; and I am also able to listen and guide.
