Women’s Health

Physiotherapy  plays a crucial role in promoting and maintaining women’s health throughout their lifespan. From pregnancy to postpartum recovery, physiotherapy interventions can address a wide range of issues specific to women’s bodies.

Pregnancy and Postpartum Care

Pregnancy and childbirth bring about significant physical changes that can lead to discomfort and functional challenges for women. Physiotherapy plays a vital role in supporting women during this transformative period. Physiotherapists can provide prenatal exercises, education on optimal body mechanics, and pain management strategies to promote a healthy pregnancy. Postpartum, physiotherapy can assist in regaining pelvic floor strength, addressing diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles), and managing any postpartum pain or complications.

Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles and ligaments that play a crucial role in bladder and bowel control, and providing support to pelvic organs.  Physiotherapy offers specialized pelvic floor rehabilitation programs that include exercises, manual therapy, and lifestyle modifications to strengthen and improve the function of the pelvic floor muscles, thereby alleviating symptoms and restoring confidence.

Physiotherapy plays an integral role in addressing the unique health needs of women throughout their lives. By offering specialized interventions and evidence-based treatments, physiotherapists empower women to take control of their well-being, promoting optimal physical function, and enhancing their quality of life.
