Women's Health

How we can help

Pelvic floor problems that a women's health physiotherapist can help with include:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Faecal incontinence
  • Chronic constipation
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Dyspareunia (pain with intercourse)
  • Vaginismus
  • Overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome- symptoms 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)

Women's health physiotherapists also provide assessment and treatment for pregnancy related problems such as:

  • Pelvic girdle and back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Abdominal muscle separation (rectus diastasis)
  • Mastitis.

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.
