Women’s Health Physiotherapy

About Women’s Health Physiotherapy

Women’s Health conditions are extremely common in women of all ages during pregnancy, postnatally, menopause and in later years. Women of all life phases are experiencing unwanted problems that they believe are normal, or to be expected. These may include Pelvic Organ Prolapse, incontinence, bladder or bowel dysfunction 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 specialist pelvic health Physiotherapy treatment may be hugely beneficial for many women and may reduce or even resolve symptoms.

What does a Women’s Health Assessment involve?

A full Women’s Health Assessment will take 60 minutes in our private and comfortable clinic environment. It will involve talking through your symptoms and medical history, where we will discuss your bladder, bowel and sexual health in a confidential and sensitive way, in order to determine where to go in terms of physical examination.

The Physical examination will involve a musculoskeletal screen where your posture and lumbopelvic movement will be assessed. It may be appropriate to perform an external and/or internal vaginal or rectal examination to assess for prolapse and to determine how your pelvic floor is functioning if you are experiencing any symptoms of incontinence. You may also be asked to complete a bladder or bowel diary in order to assess your bladder and bowel function in more depth.

Once the assessment has been completed we will be able to formulate a treatment program with you to address your symptoms.
