Women’s health conditions that we treat include:
What should you expect
All Women’s Health consultations are run in our private treatment room with our Women’s Health Physiotherapist. The first session involves a comprehensive history about your pelvic floor function, obstetric and sexual background and bladder and bowel habits. To assist us in accurately assessing your pelvic floor, an internal examination may be recommended however it is not always required. Together, you and your Women’s Health Physiotherapist will establish an appropriate treatment pathway that is specialised to you.
Treatment options may include
Pregnancy is an exciting but sometimes scary moment in your life. The knowledge you have and the decisions you make can impact how you feel during and after your pregnancy. Our team of health professionals are committed to supporting you throughout your entire journey. Some women do not know what exercise they can do during their pregnancy, so we are here to help you understand what you can do.
We also offer Core Strengthening and Mobility which focuses on building strength and coordination of the pelvic floor whilst improving overall posture, balance, muscle strength and muscle control.
If you would like to find out more information about how physiotherapy can help you, our Women’s Health Physiotherapist is happy to speak privately over the phone or via email.
