Booking in for a consultation is the first step to your recovery and following a steady exercise programme there is no reason you can't go back to sport and the gym doing weights....just not straight away!
Prior to your assessment, a post natal questionnaire will be sen to you remotely to fill in and send back. So the therapist can assess whether is treatment is correct for you or if a referral is needed.
