Women’s Health Physiotherapy.

Did you know:

  • 1 in 3 women will develop urinary continence after having a baby?
  • Up to half of all women who have had a baby will develop pelvic organ prolapse, even later in life?
  • Women of all ages, regardless of childbirth, can experience an overactive pelvic floor or develop incontinence?

While these issues may be common, they do not have to be a natural part of childbirth or aging. Women’s Health Physiotherapy can address these issues with hands on treatment, lifestyle advice, and exercise prescription.

With the help of a Titled Continence & Women’s Health Physiotherapist, many of these conditions can be assessed, managed and potentially cured through different treatment techniques, exercises, advice and lifestyle changes.

The title of Continence & Women’s Health Physiotherapist is given to those who have proven experience and further education in this field. It is awarded by the Australian Physiotherapy Association after a lengthy review process.

These Physios have extensive training in continence and pelvic floor Physiotherapy, and a strong commitment to help prevent and manage the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction.

It is a rigorous process to become a Titled Continence & Women’s Health Physiotherapist, so no matter your condition, you can rest assured you will be in safe and discreet hands.

What to Expect

Depending on the nature of your condition, you may require a slightly longer initial consultation of 60 minutes.

This initial consultation includes a number of different components, including discussion about your medical history and goals, symptoms, and a recommended treatment plan. As every person is different, our treatment plans change depending on what your symptoms and goals are.

This initial assessment also usually requires an internal examination to ensure our Physiotherapist can properly assess and understand your issue.

For most patients, we also ask that questionnaires be completed prior to treatment. This gives the Physiotherapist an excellent insight into your symptoms, routines and lifestyle.
