Physiotherapist. Women's & Pelvic Health

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.

Hi, my name is Kelly. Having graduated from AUT in 2004 I have a Masters Degree in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy including qualifications in acupuncture. My clinical interests include rehabilitation post surgery/injury, Clinical Pilates, running injury management and technique assessments.

Amy Mepham

Physiotherapist. Women's & Pelvic Health

My name is Amy Mepham and I am a musculoskeletal and pelvic health Physiotherapist. I am very excited to join the team at Freedom Health!

I graduated from the University of Otago in 2009. I believe in treating holistically to get down to the cause of an injury. I like to get my patients back to what they enjoy doing as soon as possible, whilst rehabilitating them to a high level to prevent reoccurrence of their injury.

I have a special interest in helping those with pelvic pain. Whether it be painful bladder syndrome, endometriosis, vulvodynia, dyspareunia (pain with intercourse), vaginismus or pudendal neuralgia; I strive to improve my patient’s quality of life and help them achieve their goals. I also have a passion for helping women experiencing incontinence or prolapse after giving birth or later in life. I believe that all women should be able to exercise and partake in activities they enjoy confidently.

I am a mum of 2 wonderful young girls and I enjoy running and playing football.

Hazel Rolston

Hazel Rolston

Physiotherapist. Women's Health & Pilates Therapist

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.

** NOTE: Hazel is currently on maternity leave – we look forward to welcoming Hazel back in late 2021**
