Her scope of practice within woman's health involves treating conditions and issues such as incontinence, prolapse and weak pelvic floor muscles.
Amongst all her aforementioned achievements, Hilary believes that her main strength is her ability to communicate emphatically and efficiently with her clients in order to determine a correct diagnosis and thus provide evidence-based physiotherapy treatment in a considerate and professional manner. This combination of Hilary's excellent clinical skills, knowledge and experience and her considerate, empathetic and patient-centred approach to treatment make for a practitioner that is second-to-none, and is confirmed by Hilary's extensive and loyal client-base.
