About Me


Bally Lidder is a chartered physiotherapist and an acupuncture practitioner, specialising in the treatment of Women’s Health.

In 1993 when I graduated from Wolverhampton University as a Chartered Physiotherapist I worked in the NHS in the West Midlands for many years before moving into private practice. This enabled me to work in various hospital and clinic settings gaining extensive experience and training in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain, women’s health, sports injuries, posture and gait analysis meaning that you will get a thorough assessment and treatment aiming to alleviate pain and suffering but also looking at education and preventing further relapses. Since 2001 I have worked part time at Pinehill Hospital in Hitchin treating both musculoskeletal pain and Women’s Health conditions.

I have used acupuncture as an adjunct to physiotherapy since 1994 and have done many post graduate courses leading to a Masters of Science degree in Acupuncture in 2004 from Coventry University, which allows me to assess your needs and treat with Western or Traditional acupuncture methods dependent on your pain and symptoms.

There appears to be a shortage in the private services available to women and I want to offer you natural treatment options with expert advice, physiotherapy and exercise throughout all the different stages of your life. Acupuncture treatment for menstrual difficulties and when trying for a baby and during pregnancy combining the use of acupuncture and physiotherapy treatment to alleviate aches and pains and other pregnancy related symptoms.

Post-natally, after your 6-8 week check, you may have the ‘Mummy MOT’. This includes an hour long assessment to establish recovery of your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles, a functional assessment and expert advice on the safe return to exercise to get you back in shape. As your hormones change through the different life phases, so will your exercise and nutritional needs.

Other conditions treated include post operative care following gynaecological surgery, symptoms of incontinence, prolapse and chronic pelvic pain. Also, following breast surgery to encourage full pain free joint movement, offer lymphedema advice  and scar massage.

The main areas of treatment offered include:
