Jenny has a special interest in Women’s Health Physiotherapy, including the treatment of pre and post-natal issues, pelvic floor dysfunction, urinary and bowel function. Jenny also teaches a range of exercise classes, including pre and post natal Pilates.
Jenny Phillips started working as a Physiotherapist in 1999, and has worked extensively in private practice and public hospitals in Adelaide and the UK. Jenny has a special interest in Women’s Health Physiotherapy, and is an APA Titled Continence & Women’s Health Physiotherapist.
This is a rigorous specialisation process, involving examination of knowledge and competency through the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
She treats and manages a range of continence, pregnancy-related and other women’s health conditions, from urinary and bowel incontinence and sexual dysfunction through to musculo-skeletal problems, including pelvic girdle pain in pregnancy and problems associated with low bone density in later life.
Jenny’s other main passion is Pilates, which integrates well with her women’s health work, as it can be useful for rehabilitation and general well-being. She has extensive experience in teaching Pilates to a range of clients, including pre and postnatal women.
Jenny has also recently started running the APPI mat-work courses, which involves teaching Physiotherapists and other health professionals about Pilates and how to teach it to their pre-natal clients.
Jenny also has a special interest in treatment of neck pain and headaches, and has undergone further training on the diagnosis and management for these problems.
