Hi I'm Cora Langan, I joined the team at Westport Physiotherapy and Acupuncture Clinic in 2013 after returning home from Australia. I graduated as a physiotherapist in Manchester in 2002 and thereafter worked in the UK Ireland and Australia in both hospital and private practice settings. My area of specialty is Women’s’ health and lymphoedema management. My passion is to provide a service that promotes lifelong wellness to women. After having my first son via C section I realised how little support there was for me in the postnatal period otherwise known as “the fourth trimester”! I trained as a Mummy MOT practitioner in 2018. I love to challenge myself by continually developing my skills in the areas of postural advice, manual therapy, visceral mobilisations, and acupuncture. As part of my extensive skillset I provide a comprehensive tailor- made holistic treatment to women of all ages using an integrative approach. I am a mum to two wonderful boys whom I love enjoying the great outdoors with. I enjoy travelling, photography, the arts and music. Juggling the life/work balance is the biggest challenge of all! It keeps me so busy and I would not have it any other way!
At Westport Physiotherapy and Acupuncture clinic, Cora concentrates primarily on:
- Pregnancy related musculoskeletal pain-sacroiliac and pubic symphysis dysfunction, hip pain, carpal tunnel syndrome
- Ante natal and post-natal conditions- difficulties with delivery, stress and urge urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, prolapse etc.
- Menopausal symptoms
- Lymphoedema management following breast cancer- decongestive manual drainage massage and advice (Casley Smith method, Limerick 2008)
Individual treatment plans may involve a combination pelvic floor exercises, Pilates, electrical stimulation, acupuncture and “hands on” treatment as appropriate.
Cora also specialises in postnatal women health and functional fitness. The Mummy MOT involves an intensive assessment and individually tailored integrated treatment plan for ladies in the postnatal period from six weeks on wards. Assessment involves postural evaluation, diastasis rectus testing and pelvic floor assessment.
