Niamh Clerkin

Physiotherapist. Women's Health Team Leader

Hi, my name is Niamh Clerkin and I am the Women’s & Pelvic Health Team Leader here at Freedom Health.

I was born in Dublin, Ireland and have a background in Exercise Physiology and Health science prior to completing a Bsc (Hons) Physiotherapy degree in the UK.

I managed the Women’s and Children’s Physiotherapy team at the CDHB for 7 years prior to joining Freedom Health and have developed many services including a Physio led pessary clinic and postpartum care for women who have sustained a perineal birth injury.

I am passionate about collaborating across disciplines to ensure each client’s goals are achieved and consider myself an advocate for the philosophy of “Healthy Mind; Healthy Body” in relation to Women’s Health issues.

Jo Dowle

Women's Health Physiotherapist

Hi, my name is Jo Dowle and I am thrilled to be part of the Freedom Health team.

As a Physiotherapist I am experienced in all Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy treatment along with specialist training in Women’s Health Physiotherapy.

Through my Women’s Health interest I am passionate about helping women of all ages, be it through pre & post natal care or women later in life that are ready to make the decisions that will improve their way of life substantially.

I love helping people achieve their goals in life – whether it be playing with their children, staying fit and active in older age or competing in elite sport.

Hazel Rolston

Physiotherapist. Clinical Pilates Therapist. Women's Health

My name is Hazel Rolston and I am a Physiotherapist and was born and bred here in Christchurch. I am passionate about delivering excellent physiotherapy and understand what it takes to restore movement and improve strength & stability to help clients achieve above and beyond their rehabilitation goals.

Over the last few years I have specialised in the area of women’s health, treating a range of conditions including incontinence, pelvic pain, prolapse and abdominal separation.

I believe pain and incontinence during or after pregnancy are common, but not normal and have a passion for educating women of all ages not to put up with these issues and seek help if they occur.
