Women's Health and Wellness Services
Women’s and Health practitioners help women manage a wide range of conditions across the life stages for optimal physical and emotional well-being.
With a focus on care during the child bearing years and beyond, we can help you manage common discomforts and hormonal fluxuations, allowing you to keep active, retain intimacy and enjoy life.
Prenatal, Antenatal and Postnatal Care:
Pelvic pain, neck and lower back pain, wrist and thumb pain as well as bladder, pelvic organ and breastfeeding related problems are common challenges during this time.
Many bladder and bowel problems, particularly during pregnancy, can be caused by weak pelvic floor muscles. If you have pelvic floor weakness you may;
- leak urine when you cough, sneeze or run
- be unable to control your wind or leak after emptying your bowel
- feel an urgent need to empty your bladder or bowel
- have difficulty emptying your bowel
- feel heaviness or bulging in your vagina. This is called a pelvic organ prolapse.
Pelvic floor muscles work as a sling to support and help control the pelvic organs and have a role to play in sexual function. Weakness of the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles during pregnancy and post-natally are common and can persist if not addressed.
Pelvic surgery including prostate surgery in men, menopause, being overweight and constipation and straining also negatively impact on pelvic floor health.
Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapists can help you manage bladder and bowel symptoms, prolapse and pelvic pain through an individualised approach to pelvic floor rehabilitation.
We also take a wider look at lifestyle factors and ensure close supervision for best results.
