Women's Health

Pregnancy, breastfeeding and menopause result in dramatic changes to a woman's body.  Each life stage brings different challenges for the pelvis and pelvic floor.  Women's health physiotherapy can help you if you have any of the following concerns:

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Faecal incontinence

  • Chronic constipation and obstructed defaecation

  • Pelvic organ prolapse

  • Dyspareunia (pain with sexual intercourse)

  • Vaginismus

  • Overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome.  Symptoms of OAB include a sudden and very strong feeling of needing to urinate (urgency), going to the toilet frequently, and sometimes leaking urine before you can get to the toilet (urge incontinence)

Pelvic floor consultations are conducted in a private room.  Depending on your problem you may be asked to do a bladder or bowel diary at home to assess your bladder or bowel function.   It is usual to perform a thorough physical examination, including, with your consent, an internal examination, to assess pelvic floor muscle strength, endurance and ability to contract and relax.  This ensures that pelvic floor muscle training can be customised for each individual.

Pre and Post-Natal Care

Pregnancy is a special time in a woman's life.  Women's health physiotherapy is there to help with pregnancy-related conditions such as:

  • Pelvic girdle, pubic symphysis and back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Abdominal muscle separation (rectus diastasis)
  • Blocked milk ducts/Mastitis.
