Womens health clinic – women’s physiotherapy
The qualified and experienced professionals in our womens health physiotherapy clinic can provide a range of services to help with issues arising during pregnancy or after childbirth or general issues relating to the pelvic floor area or incontinence problems. We also provide our full range of physiotherapy and other related services as well as exercise classes, yoga and Pilates for women to help with maintaining health and fitness.
What can women’s health physiotherapy help with?
Women’s physiotherapy includes treatment to help with pelvic floor problems like stress urinary incontinence, urge urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, pain and dysfunction of the pelvic floor muscles.
If you recently had a baby, we can also undertake post-natal checks for pelvic floor muscle problems and rectus abdominus diastases (separation of the tummy muscles). This can be done at 6-8 weeks after having a baby and is still useful later on. It is really important to have this check if you are intending to return to sports after having your baby.
Rehabilitation for conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse or following uro-gynae surgery or repair.
Your Physiotherapist will ask you detailed questions to identify the problem and her assessment will include an examination of your pelvic floor muscles. Treatments may include specialist advice, trigger point release of tight or painful muscles, the use of devices to help stimulate weak muscles and a personal programme to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
