About the team

Lidder Therapies, Physiotherapist, Hitchin

Bally Lidder
Physiotherapist and Acupuncture practitioner,
specialising in Women’s Health

Bally graduated from Wolverhampton University in 1993 and worked as a Chartered Physiotherapist in the NHS in the West Midlands for many years before moving into private practice. Since 2001 she has worked part time at Pinehill Hospital in Hitchin treating both musculoskeletal pain and Women’s Health conditions. She has used acupuncture as an adjunct to physiotherapy since 1994 and has done many post graduate courses leading to a Masters of Science degree in Acupuncture in 2004 from Coventry University.

Bally has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain, women’s health, sports injuries, posture and gait analysis and is able to offer you a thorough assessment and treatment aiming to alleviate pain and suffering but also education and preventing further relapses. She recognises that there is not many options available to women suffering with pregnancy related pain or pelvic dysfunction and this has led her to set up Lidder Therapies to make women's health physiotherapy and post natal care more readily accessible. Bally has used acupuncture within physiotherapy and as a stand alone treatment for many years and is able to offer acupuncture

treatment for pain and to enhance fertility and menstrual symptoms. 

When not at work, Bally enjoys spending time with her husband and 3 children. Her interests include exercise such as running, Pilates and Yoga and travelling.

Rachael Kuik
Women's Health Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor

Rachael Kuik is a Women’s Health Physiotherapist specializing in post-natal rehab, stress incontinence, diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse and hip injuries. Rachael graduated from Coventry University in 2007 and has since worked in NHS hospitals, outpatient settings and even backstage at the Royal Albert Hall with the English National Ballet. A love of dance from a young age and completing a foundation degree in dance performance has led to her interest in delivering pre and post-natal care to dancers and female athletes.

 

Rachael completed both Pilates matwork and equipment training with the APPI and often uses these exercises in her client’s rehabilitation, alongside manual, soft tissue and taping techniques, strength training and plyometric drills. She enjoys not only reducing client’s symptoms but helping them return to sports and a fully active lifestyle.

 

Since becoming a mother herself to two young boys, Rachael is even more impassioned with the need for high quality care across women’s health, from birth choice to recovery. Outside of work Rachael likes to keep fit with weights, running and pilates.
