Taryn joined our team at Physio Inq Manning in January 2020 as a Physiotherapist with a special interest in all things Women’s Health. Here’s how she describes herself…

“My passion began 7 years ago while pregnant with my first child, fast forward 22 months and 4 kids later (a singleton and triplets). Both vaginal and caesarean section births, less and more complicated pregnancies. My body has seen it all, and as I’ve studied, learnt more about the female body, returned to exercise my passion for helping other women has only increased. Increased to the point that I am now completing my Masters in Continence and Women’s Health at Curtin University.

I can help you from pre-conception, through your pregnancies and the pelvic girdle pain, lower back pain and wrist pain that can accompany it. From the early post-partum days of cracked nipples, mastitis/blocked milk ducts and breast-feeding advice. To pelvic floor rehabilitation, abdominal muscle separation and rehab programs to get you back to what is meaningful to you. From playing with your kids, laughing/sneezing with confidence, returning to social sports, even running that half marathon you dreamed of.“
