Women’s Health Week – September 2023

It’s argued that women are highly skilled multi-taskers: juggling a career or volunteering, balancing sports and social lives. Working on our partnerships and navigating parenthood, “what’s for dinner?”, “have you seen my socks?” all while trying to prioritise our own mental and physical health. Not to mention, while doing all of this, the ability to grow a small human inside our bodies! Living with the changes of a woman’s body throughout her woman’s lifespan is no mean feat. Recovering from injuries and aging is different for all of us, so it makes sense treatments need to be unique and personalised to you.
A Women’s & Pelvic Health Physiotherapist specifically see women with complaints such as:
  • Incontinence from either bladder and/or bowel and pelvic organ prolapse.
  • Pregnancy related musculoskeletal pains as well as advice on safe continuation of and/or return to exercise during and after pregnancy for healthy outcomes of mothers and babies.

If you are experiencing anything like this that affects your life and your ability to ‘juggle it all’, you are not alone. Up to ⅓ of women experience urinary incontinence or discomfort in their pelvis from prolapse. An initial assessment and guided treatment plan from your Women’s Health Physio can help you.

A typical women’s health consult includes a private, confidential and sensitive approach to history taking to work together to understand and diagnose your complaint. Assessments can include questionnaires, bladder or bowel diaries and checking the strength & function of your pelvic floor muscles and pelvic organs.
