Women's Health Physiotherapy

Women's health physiotherapy is a specialised area of physiotherapy that focuses on the unique healthcare needs of women. This field of physiotherapy addresses a wide range of women's health concerns, including pregnancy-related issues, pelvic floor dysfunction, incontinence, and menopause. Women's health physiotherapists have specialised training and expertise in assessing and treating these conditions, which are often overlooked or underdiagnosed in traditional healthcare settings.

During pregnancy, women's bodies undergo significant changes that can cause pain, discomfort, and reduced mobility. Women's health physiotherapists can help expectant mothers manage these changes through exercise programs, postural education, and manual therapy. After childbirth, women may experience issues such as incontinence, pelvic pain, or abdominal separation, which can be addressed through pelvic floor muscle training and other specialised interventions.

Overall, women's health physiotherapy plays a crucial role in promoting the health and well-being of women across their lifespan.
