Women’s Health Physiotherapy is focused on musculoskeletal issues associated with pregnancy, birth, post-partum, breastfeeding and menopause, including diagnosis and management of pelvic floor muscle dysfunction.
There is now relief and help for pelvic floor dysfunction through Physiotherapy; after all – it is another group of muscles! Many problems arise from difficulty in getting these muscles working properly. Focussed Physiotherapy on these areas provides a chance to improve your muscle activation and become stronger, allowing you to be more confident in your pelvic floor to provide support when you need it.
