Leanne O'Brien is a Specialist Women's and Men's Health Physiotherapist with experience in treating a wide range of pelvic floor issues and musculoskletelal pain (including pregnancy and post-natal rehab, pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction and post-operative rehab). She has over 13 years experience, and has worked in both the NHS and privately, including work in a gait lab, rehabilitating runners and athletes back to sport.

Leanne works closely with dancers, musical theatre and actors. Having studied ballet, tap, contemporary, jazz and street dance, Leanne has great insight into the demands that dance places on the body.  This background has allowed her to rehab dancers back to full fitness following injury, surgery or pregnancy.  She offers acupuncture, pelvic floor re-education (kegel exercises, real-time ultrasound, biofeedback and muscle stimulation), pelvic floor manual therapy, a return to sport or performing arts postnatally, massage (including scar massage), and reformer pilates training (including pregnancy and postnatal). One of Leanne's specialist interests is the relationship between the diaphragm and the pelvic floor, which is a key area to address in brass players, including throughout pregnancy and into the postnatal period. She also gives hernia advice pre and post operatively, to patients (both men and women) who've had repairs or are trying to treat their issue conservatively.

"My passion for Women’s and Men’s health started when I realised that my female athletes needed a more in-depth level of care. My passion has spiraled from there and I’ve worked as a specialist physiotherapist in both the NHS and private practice. I’m incredibly passionate about returning people back to activity and enabling them to achieve their goals".
