Amy O'Mara - Physiotherapist

Amy is an empathetic and affable physiotherapist and co-founder of Secret Women’s Business Physiotherapy with almost 20 years experience. Amy draws on a wealth of knowledge in areas of women’s health, lower back & pelvic pain, and exercise physiology, treating holistically with compassion and understanding. Following the completion of degrees in Sport Management, Sport and Exercise Science as well as Physiotherapy, Amy commenced her vocation in the public sector before moving into the private sector to hone her musculoskeletal skills for many years. For over a decade now Amy has pursued a special interest in individualised women’s health physiotherapy consultations.

Amy is an experienced physiotherapist in all areas of women’s health physiotherapy including supporting women with incontinence, bladder and bowel dysfunction, prolapse, pelvic pain, pain with intercourse, pregnancy and the post-partum period, pessary fitting and management.

Amy strives for balance in life and makes time to do the things she loves including spending quality time with her husband and three children, baking and cake decorating, watching movies and socialising with friends. Amy actively volunteers each week in the community at two local schools, both in the coordination and delivery of their Primary Ethics programs.
