On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Shannon Sepulveda, DPT guest hosts and interviews Antony Lo on biopsychosocial considerations for the female athlete. Antony has earned his degree in Physiotherapy, a Masters in Physiotherapy and took part in the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Specialisation training program – the highest form of training a physiotherapist can take in Australia. Having successfully grown 2 private practices (Sans Souci Physiotherapy Centre and Penshurst Physiotherapy Centre), Antony sold these to concentrate on his Specialisation Training Program and developing educational courses for health professionals and the general public. He still consults at 2 locations in Sydney seeing everyone from children to the elderly, as well as his sports-specific patients. He also travels around Australia to deliver seminar information and provide consultations for those interested in his approach.

In this episode, we discuss:

-How do we hurt females with exercise?

-Practitioner language and iatrogenic harm

-Advice for the female athlete navigating the healthcare system

-Antony’s experience treating diastasis recti

-And so much more!

 

“Holistic women’s health is more to me than what is just happening in the pelvic area.”

 

“How you do the exercise is much more important than the exercise you choose.”

 

“We don’t actually know mechanistically why things happen.”

 

“If we make something a problem and then we make a product to solve the problem, you can make money from that.”

 

“Being a nice person goes a long way in helping people much more than technical knowledge.”

 

For more information on Antony:

Physiotherapy since 1993. During this time, he has earned his degree in Physiotherapy, a Masters in Physiotherapy and took part in the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Specialisation training program – the highest form of training a physiotherapist can take in Australia.

Having successfully grown 2 private practices (Sans Souci Physiotherapy Centre and Penshurst Physiotherapy Centre), Antony sold these to concentrate on his Specialisation Training Program and developing educational courses for health professionals and the general public. He still consults at 2 locations in Sydney seeing everyone from children to the elderly, as well as his sports-specific patients. He also travels around Australia to deliver seminar information and provide consultations for those interested in his approach.

Antony can help you in a number of ways – his unique skill set and approach allows him to help those in pain – from those with acute injuries to those with long-term chronic pain – and those who are interested in enhancing their performance for sport, work or recreation. He mainly uses exercise, manual therapy, dry needling and various other techniques to help his clients. A big emphasis is placed on teaching you about your condition, what to do about it and how to help yourself.
