Women’s, Men’s and Pelvic Health Physiotherapist
Maternal Health Physiotherapist
Interest in the recreational runner (start running to ultra marathon)
Rebecca (Beck) has particular interests in women’s health physiotherapy – pelvic floor rehabilitation, management of pelvic pain and incontinence, management of pregnancy related pain, and pregnancy and post natal concerns including the safe return to high level exercise.
Beck has worked with a large number of Adelaide’s recreational running community helping achieve pain free, efficient running through collaborative goal setting and training plans. Beck has a wealth of knowledge and experience in exercise rehabilitation and manual therapies for general and sporting injuries.
She is also passionate about aiding people of all ages to move better to feel better for life regardless of age, stage or dysfunction. Beck works with a large number of Adelaide GP’s and specialists to help patients achieve their individual treatment goals.
Beck has a strong exercise/movement focus with her treatments, with nearly all patients receiving a specialised home program to aide in their recovery. She feels this builds independence and self-confidence for the patient. Exercise has the strongest evidence in all forms of rehabilitation. Beck also utilises various manual treatments as well as dry needling to help with symptom management.
Beck is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, Continence and Women’s Health Physiotherapy Australia , Continence Foundation of Australia, the International Urogynecological Association, the Urogynaecological Society of Australia, Sports Physiotherapy Australia, and Sports Medicine Australia. She has extensive post graduate qualifications in Continence and Women’s Health Physiotherapy including the award of ‘Titled member’ from the Australian Physiotherapy Association (2012). She regularly attends courses and conference locally, nationally and internationally to keep her up to date with the ever developing area of rehabilitation.
Beck has three school aged young children to keep her busy. In her down time you can find Beck running out on the roads and trails around Adelaide as well as the local running events (5km Parkrun through to 56km Yurrebilla ultra-marathons). She has ran marathons in China and France and is looking towards the elusive Boston marathon in (hopefully) 2019. Professionally, 2019 will see Beck complete a Post Graduate Certificate in the Conservative Management of Pelvic Organ Prolapse at the Uni of SA – this is the first course of it’s kind in Australia.
