Womens Health Physiotherapy is a therapeutic treatment of all disorders affecting the pelvis and pelvic floor.
Shockingly 1 in 3 women experience women’s health problems during their lifetime. However many endure these problems, often for years, either too embarrassed to seek help or unawar that there are treatments available.
So from incontinence to prolapse or pelvic pain, there is growing evidence that physiotherapy can alleviate, and in many cases cure symptoms.

What can I expect?
Your assessment and treatment will depend upon your symptoms. We will start with taking a full and detailed history. Whilst these sensitive issues are often difficult to discuss, understanding the onset of your symptoms and how your daily life is affected is vital in directing your treatment. This will be followed by a physical assessment and may or may not include examination your abdominal and pelvic floor. Following this assessment you may be offered an internal examination.
By establishing your baseline level of pelvic floor muscle control we can then develop a specific and individualised exercise programme and provide appropriate advice and coping strategies tailored to you.
