Pelvic Health Physio

It is a type of physical therapy that focuses on the specific health needs of women, including pregnancy, childbirth, and pelvic floor issues. The goal is to improve physical function, relieve pain and discomfort, and support overall health and well-being. It involves a combination of exercises, manual therapy, and education to help women recover from injury, manage chronic conditions, and improve their quality of life.

It has strong evidence-based support in the treatment of various conditions such as:

Urinary incontinence: Pelvic floor muscle exercises have been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of stress, urge and mixed urinary incontinence.

Pelvic pain: Physiotherapy can help relieve chronic pelvic pain by addressing the underlying musculoskeletal and neurological issues.

Pregnancy and postpartum recovery: Pelvic Health Physiotherapy can help women recover from childbirth, alleviate pregnancy-related pain and prepare the body for delivery.

Prolapse: Pelvic floor muscle training has been shown to be effective in managing symptoms and improving quality of life for women with pelvic organ prolapse.

Sexual dysfunction: Physiotherapy can address sexual dysfunction by improving pelvic muscle function and addressing any underlying physical issues.

Constipation: Pelvic floor muscle training has been shown to be effective in improving symptoms of constipation.

These findings are supported by numerous clinical trials and systematic reviews.
