Women’s Health Physiotherapy is a specialised field of Physiotherapy that focuses on female health related problems, treating all disorders affecting the body, but primarily the back, pelvis and pelvic floor. Embrace Physio is here to support women through all stages of life: during pregnancy; after childbirth; before and after gynaecological surgery; pre and post menopause and beyond!
1 in 3 women experience women’s health problems at some point in their life, often for years, either too embarrassed to seek help, or unaware that there are treatments and help available. Whether it’s pelvic pain, back pain, incontinence, prolapse, pelvic floor weakness, perineal trauma from childbirth, or simply a desire to take control of health and fitness……there is a growing body of evidence that Women’s Health Physiotherapy can help alleviate and in many cases cure these symptoms!
These include: Antenatal and Postnatal problems associated with pregnancy and childbirth – musculosketelal disorders, pelvic girdle pain (PGP), back pain and/or sciatica, pelvic floor weakness, bladder and bowel concerns, post C-Section rehabilitation, perineal trauma and scarring, carpal tunnel syndrome and separation of tummy muscles (recti diastasis).
Gynaecological problems: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI), bladder weakness, overactive bladder (OAB), urge incontinence, pelvic floor weakness and dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, vaginal pain, problems with sexual intercourse, pre & post menopause, constipation, bowel control difficulties and post gynaecological surgery.
