PREGNANCY & WOMEN’S PHYSIOTHERAPY
Pregnancy can be one of the most rewarding and joyful times in a woman’s life. However, it can also be one of the most uncomfortable and painful times.

DE BRA’S PARTNERSHIP
We have recently partnered with the Aussie retailer, DeBra’s, to help women who have recently had an injury affecting the comfortability from wearing or putting on a bra.
With 21 years of experience, DeBra’s is an established authority on bras, lingerie, shapewear, and swimwear for the fuller busted woman (sizes 6-36, A-K cup). One of their key goals is to provide women with correctly fitted bras that are beautiful, comfortable, and supportive, no matter their shape or size.
DeBra’s is also focused on helping women around Australia to find the right bra after experiencing pain and discomfort from either short-term or long-term injury, as well as post-surgery.
Their range of front opening and physio-approved bras support women who, for whatever reason, have restricted mobility that impacts their ability to put on and remove a conventional bra that fastens at the back. This type of garment is perfect for women with shoulder pain or who experience restricted range of movement in the shoulders, elbows or wrists. Wearing this bra means you no longer have to reach behind your back and fiddle with a tricky clasp.
DeBra’s also stocks a fantastic range of posture corrector bras which can alleviate some of the pain associated with having a fuller bust. The fuller coverage backs not only smooth unwanted lumps and bumps, but also provide wonderful support. These bras have a broader back panel, which spreads the weight of your bust over a larger surface effectively reducing the weight felt on the shoulders.
