1 in 3 women will experience incontinence at some stage in their lives, most commonly around pregnancy or post menopause but it can occur at any stage in your life cycle. Incontinence is never normal and should not be ignored or simply ‘put up with’. Most women can expect a resolution of their incontinence within 3-6months of following an incontinence program, tailor-made to the individual by one of our women’s health trained physiotherapists. For a lot of women this is a sensitive issue which is why our Physiotherapists have received the appropriate training to keep you at ease during your sessions and also to maintain discretion and professionalism at all times.
Pelvic pain is a broad term for any pain in the lower abdomen, lower back, pubic or groin areas. It can be brought on during pregnancy or childbirth, following abdominal surgery or trauma to the pelvic floor, scarum or coccyx; due to chronic constipation, or sometimes it can have no obvious cause. Some of the more common pelvic pain conditions we treat are pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain (or SPD), vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis, pudendal neuralgia, or vaginal pain during intercourse. Treatment is individualised to the client (male or female) and will include a combination of education and advice, massage, trigger point therapy, connective tissue manipulation, dry needling/Acupuncture, manual therapy of the pelvis, postural rehabilitation, specific exercises or Pilates.
