Alison has 30 years experience as a physiotherapist and is a mother of 2 beautiful daughters. She has a professional interest in the area of women's health, pelvic pain and stability, pain associated with pregnancy and the post natal period and the restoration of the pelvic floor and abdominal wall following pregnancy and childbirth. Alison developed the bodyball program by combining her professional expertise with her personal passion for exercise and the restoration of the female body following childbirth. She initiated, designed and instructed post natal physiotherapy in the maternity unit at North Shore Private Hospital.
Alison has trained extensively in techniques and protocols for restoring form and function, strength, stability and integrity of the muscles of the pelvic floor, lower back and abdominal wall. She applies this knowledge in the clinical management of women with functional impairment utilising manual therapy, joint mobilisation, muscle energy and soft tissue techniques. She then complements this with her exercise expertise to design and instruct very specific exercise programs for women to attain their ultimate goals in their childbearing years.
