TEAM

Lauren

Lauren is one of the founding Principal Physiotherapists at WWMH and head of the Womens’ and Mens’ Heath department at Nurture Healthcare. She commenced working as a physiotherapist in 2002, and became a partner of Hoppers Physio in 2005. Since then, Lauren has gained increased knowledge and experience in the management of Womens’ and Mens’ Health Patients. She has completed many courses through the Womens’ Health Training Association, particularly focusing on the management of pre and post natel women, urinary and faecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction, and delivery of exercise programs.

 

At WWMH we are fully equipped with real time ultrasound, a peritron machine for accurate EMG reading of PFM activation and relaxation, electrical stimulation, pelvic support braces, SRC pregnancy and post natel wear, weighted pelvic floor training sets and dilation devices.

 

Lauren is also involved in the clinical pilates program at the centre and enjoys facilitating women’s return to exercise following delivery. She has 4 young kids and can strongly relate to the importance of maintaining a healthy body during these years.
