Having children has given me a passion for Women’s Health Physiotherapy and has made me realize that women of all ages during pregnancy, postnatally, menopause and in later life are experiencing unwanted symptoms that they believe are normal. These symptoms may include Pelvic Organ Prolapse, incontinence and pain.
Many women are too embarrassed to seek help for these types of problems, or are unsure of where to go to for help. Many are not aware that Women’s Health Physiotherapy is a treatment option for them, however Physiotherapy treatment may be hugely beneficial for these women and may reduce or even resolve their symptoms.
The National Institute of Clinical Excellence [NICE] recommends Pelvic floor Exercise as the first line treatment for female urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse and evidence has shown good effects with this form of treatment for these conditions.
