Abdomino phrenic DYSSYNERGY

March 16, 2022

I have been diagnosed with the above condition. One of the treatments is intense physio but I’m struggling to find a therapist with experience of this condition.

Can you help?

Hi Mili
APD is pretty rare but very treatable.

Your symptoms may be variable but generally a combination of manual therapy with pelvic floor and possibly diaphragmatic training seem to do the trick.

Don’t expect overnight success but a long term rehab program will help.

I’ve cc’d in Leanne who heads up our pelvic health service if you’ve got any more questions.

I hope this helps.

Hi Mili

This is definitely something that we can help with. I would recommend you see myself, or our other consultant womens health physio Jenny. Jenny is based in our Fitzrovia clinic and I’m based in Moorgate. We are both familiar with the issue and would be better placed to treat you. I work Monday to Wednesday and Friday, Jenny works on Wednesday. I tend to have more appointment times available as I work more days. Would you like me to send you our availability?

Best wishes
