Why Does it happen

It is fascinating how the human body can adapt and auto-regulate himself to welcome a new life.

Despite, this is an amazing and natural process, it can be extremely challenging from a physical perspective.

Due to an increase in body weight your posture will change leading to greater pressure on the back and other joints.

Your ligaments will become looser to enable greater pelvic floor mobility, which of course is vital to give birth. Despite, the increased ligaments laxity is an important ‘auto-regulation,’ it often creates postural imbalances and pain.

Client Testimonials

See what our customers in Kensington and Gloucester Road have to say about The Physio Box in their own words!

From initial consultation to 4 ongoing sessions lasting a month Giuseppe worked closely with me to fix my back injury suffered from sport. As well as treatment he showed me exercises and stretches to perform between my visits which has meant a thorough recovery. I would highly recommend Giuseppe.

Oli Hillyer-Riley

If Google allowed me to give Giuseppe at The Physio Box 6 stars, then I would! 5 will have to do! An outstanding Physiotherapist! Highly recommended!

Jonathan Clark

Giuseppe has helped me recover from a number of rugby injuries over the last few years. Every time the diagnosis and prescribed treatment has got me back to rugby far quicker than originally forecasted by other physios. Having seen a lot of physios over the last 10 years, I always felt there was a “one size fits all” approach and the treatment seemed quite generic. This is Giuseppe’s point of difference, he truly takes time to understand the issue an recommended a course of treatment that always feels bespoke to me and my particularly injury. Would highly recommend!

Michael Clarke

A superb place that is both convenient and competitively priced. Giuseppe takes a considered professional approach and draws from experience to work through an appropriate treatment plan. Always a pleasure to have professionals who listen to your problems fully and are willing to adapt throughout the treatment plan and not just fob you off with the same system each visit. Great place and recommend 100%.

Kim Plant

Giuseppe has guided me through post-shoulder surgery rehab, working toward getting back into competitive rugby. We worked closely together for about 7 months, seeing him twice a week for gym and rugby contact sessions as well as hands on treatment. I absolutely loved working with Giuseppe, making visible progress week by week. I couldn't have asked for a better person to guide me through my rehab process; Giuseppe didn't only pay attention to my shoulder, but also overall fitness and the mental aspect. All of this resulted in me getting back on the pitch stronger and fitter than ever. 12/10 would recommend him to anyone!

Dana Burik

I have had lower back pain on and off for years - recently the pain had worsened tremendously. After trying everything - chiropractors, other physios, even yoga, nothing was working. I came across Giuseppe and the Physio Box on Facebook and opted in for a 15 minute assessment. Straight away I felt relaxed in the clinic and hope that I could get this problem fixed started to creep in again... I went ahead with a care package and now the pain is completely gone... I can't thank Giuseppe enough - his healing hands are nothing short of magical. Thank you so much - 100% recommendation.

Stephen Taylor

Giuseppe has helped me in numerous occasions with my chronic back pain. I highly recommend his clinic for his professionalism and his passion for caring about the individual patients

Mattia Pagliara
