Megan Campbell APAM
B.App.Sc (Physio), B.Sp.Sc (Ex.Sc)
Pelvic Health Physiotherapist
Megan is a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist with a background in Exercise Science, and a special interest in the pelvis, that has led her into Women's and Pelvic Health.
From high school Megan obtained a degree in Exercise Science from UNSW and in an unexpected twist found herself in the Workers Compensation Injury Management field for a few years. She pursued her ultimate dream of a Physiotherapy career and graduated from the University of Sydney as a Physiotherapist in 2008.
Megan has undertaken regular advanced clinical skills courses, including pelvic health assessment and management with the Womens Health Training Association, spine & pelvic techniques with Barbara Hungerford, Craniosacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute and Visceral Manipulation with the Barral Institute. She is a Level 1 Mat Pilates Instructor and integrates all these techniques into her clinical practice.
Megan is the mother of 2 small children and was attracted to Women's Health for 2 reasons: her own personal pregnancy, childbirth and post-partum experiences; and a desire to go beyond external pelvic work to find a more integrated solution with internal assessment and management. This is especially important for those tricky cases that don't respond to standard treatment and rehabilitation strategies. Her interest in running has also provided Megan with an insight into the range of lower limb issues that face post-partum mums in physical activity. She is passionate about helping mums maintain or return to those activities that keep them sane.
Outside of clinical practice Megan is a tragic foodie who loves cooking, and is working on her ParkRun PB! She is now officially a soccer mum and hopes to pick up a snowboard again in the not too distant future.
Her main areas of clinical interest are:
. Pelvic Girdle Pain (including pubis symphysis, sacroiliac, coccygeal and deep gluteal pain) - sport, pregnancy or general
. Hip, Groin and Back pain/dysfunction - especially those that are not responding to standard treatment
. Pelvic Floor Muscle Dysfunction
. Pre-/Post-Natal education, treatment and management
. Pre-/Post-Operative care
. Abdominal Separation
. Deep Core Retraining
. Return To Sport programmes
