What is a Women’s Health Physiotherapist?

Our Women’s Health Physiotherapist Bec, has a specific interest in the management and treatment of Women’s health conditions. Our Women’s Health Physiotherapist has undertaken extensive specialised training through the Women’s Health Training Association, tailored specifically to help all sorts of conditions experienced by women of all ages.

Why do we need Women’s Health Physiotherapists?

Well, mainly because Women’s health issues are extremely common issues. In addition to that:

What to Expect from an Initial Women’s Health Physiotherapy Appointment

1. Your Story & History

We start by listening to your story to make sure you are heard. Depending on your problem we get detailed history on things such as your pelvic floor symptoms, toileting habits, and previous pregnancies. We also want to find out what your goals are and what you would like to get back to doing.

2. Assessment

We will be performing a thorough assessment of your pelvic floor, breathing, bladder and musculoskeletal system. We will also do an internal exam and a real time ultrasound (click below for more info.)

3. Education and Empowerment

We will give you a likely diagnosis and explain to you exactly what is going on. It is so important that you understand what the problem is and how we are going to work together to resolve the issue.

We show you diagrams to help you understand the anatomy (where the issue is) and how it is happening and we will put a plan in place so you are clear on where you are and where you are heading.

4. Treatment

Depending on your diagnosis and assessment findings your treatment may include:

  • A very specific approach to building up your pelvic floor
  • Developing your exercise program
  • Any manual therapy and hands on treatment (if needed) to release
    muscles and manage pain
  • Lifestyle modifications to help improve your condition
  • Prescription of equipment if needed

All of these treatments are aimed at helping you achieve your end goal!

5. Follow Up

Pelvic floor conditions are complex and if we can work together to ensure the correct treatment is being done you are more likely to achieve your goals. Before leaving your appointment we will set a treatment plan – this will highlight when we need to see you next to continue treatment and what needs to be done in the meantime to achieve your goals.
