Women’s Health Physiotherapy – Don’t suffer in silence!

What is Women’s Health Physiotherapy?

Women’s Health Physiotherapy is the therapeutic treatment of all disorders affecting the pelvis and pelvic floor for women at all stages of life.


What is the pelvic floor?

The pelvic floor consists of layers of muscle, ligaments and sheet like tissues that stretch from the pubic bone at the front of your body to the base of your spine within the pelvis. These muscles are often described as a hammock which lift and support the pelvic organs.

How does the pelvic floor work?

When you pass water or have a bowel motion the pelvic floor muscles should relax. Afterwards, they should contract again to restore control.

These muscles should automatically shorten and contract when you laugh, cough or sneeze.

Sometimes these muscles can become

  • too weak
  • too tight
  • combine a pattern of too much tension in some areas whilst being too relaxed in others

These factors can lead to pelvic floor dysfunction.

More information on pelvic floor physiotherapy can be found at pelvic health solutions

What problems can occur?

  • Pelvic pain
  • Bladder/bowel dysfunction
  • Stress or urge incontinence
  • Faecal incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Painful sex
  • Pelvic organ prolapse

These are NOT a normal part of ageing or a normal post-natal occurrence.

Too often these issues are put down to being a normal part of having given birth or of the ageing process. It is not often talked about, yet 1 in 3 women suffer from continence issues.

  • Are pads a part of your normal life?
  • Do you worry when you go the cinema to watch a comedy or participate in less sport due to a concern about the pelvic floor letting you down?
  • Are you nervous about having sex because of pain?
  • Have you had lots of tests and investigations and been told there is nothing abnormal to see?

It could be that you would benefit from physiotherapy.

There is growing evidence that physiotherapy can alleviate and in many cases cure these symptoms.
