Women’s health physio is the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction and disorders including incontinence, prolapse and treatment for pain or pelvic floor symptoms during and after pregnancy. While pregnancy and childbirth are very common causes of urinary incontinence they are not the only risk.

If you answer yes to any of these questions, you should book an appointment with our Womens Health physio.

Do you feel like you have never quite recovered fully since childbirth?

Do you suffer with involuntary urine leakage with no control or with impact activities?

Do you have a heaviness feeling with weight bearing?

Women’s health physio is the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction and disorders including incontinence, prolapse and treatment for pain or pelvic floor symptoms during and after pregnancy. While pregnancy and childbirth are very common causes of urinary incontinence they are not the only risk factors.

Common conditions we treat:

Stress incontinence – the loss of small amounts of urine with effort or physical activity (e.g coughing or jumping).

Urge incontinence – a sudden, uncontrollable urge to pass urine which can lead to involuntary loss of urine before you make it to the toilet.

Pelvic organ prolapse – a prolapse occurs when the organs drop from their usual position due to a stretch or weakening of the supportive structures. Often a dragging or heaviness can be felt.

Pre- and post-natal – pregnancy and childbirth can increase stress and strain on your back, pelvis, and pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. Pelvic girdle pain, abdominal muscle separation or pelvic floor muscle dysfunction are common conditions during this time.
