Conditions we can assist with include:

 

Pregnancy Assessment

Our Women’s Health Physiotherapist can assist with pelvic floor and abdominal function, low back pain and pelvic girdle pain and create a tailored management plan including activity modification, strategies and exercise advice specific to the individual’s needs and goals.

Post Natal Assessment

During pregnancy and child birth, a woman’s body goes through a huge amount of change and transformation. The changes that occur include increased laxity of the pelvic ligaments as well as significant load through your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles.

From 6 weeks following both a caesarean or a vaginal birth, it is important for women to have a thorough post-natal assessment by a trained Women’s Health Physiotherapist. A post-natal review allows you to discuss and manage any problems that you are experiencing, prevent any injuries occurring, return safely to exercise and sexual intercourse, and to ensure that your body fully heals following pregnancy and birth.

Pregnancy & Post Natal Pilates

Everyone in our Group Rehabilitation Pilates classes have an individualised program targeting goals set by you and your Physio. Your program will include upper and lower limb strengthening, pelvic floor activation and mobility exercises specifically designed for your current trimester.

Pre & Post Natal only classes where you can bring your babies/toddlers – are on Tuesdays and Fridays from 11.15am – 12.15pm. Otherwise you can come to any group rehabilitation classes to carry out your individual program!

 

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Prolapse which is a feeling of a lump or bulge in the vagina can occur in both the post-natal and peri-menopausal periods of life and is often described as distressing or impacting on a person’s quality of life. Pelvic floor muscle exercises are effective at reducing symptoms of prolapse. A physiotherapist can also advise on the correct ways to lift objects, open bowels and exercise while managing a prolapse.

 

Bladder Dysfunction – Stress Urinary Incontinence

Leaking urine when coughing, sneezing, running or lifting is a common problem that is very common. An individualised pelvic floor exercise program prescribed by a Physiotherapist, combined with keeping a healthy weight is the most effective form of management for women of all ages.

 

Overactive Bladder (Urinary urgency/incontinence)

Needing to use the bathroom very urgently with or without leaking urine is another common bladder problem that affects both men and women. A physiotherapist can teach bladder calming and training strategies which is an effective and quick treatment to manage urgency, as well as advising about cutting out food and drink that may be irritating the bladder. 

 

Bowel symptoms

Inability to control wind, incontinence of faeces or constipation is common and can be very embarrassing and reduce your quality of life. Once again – an individualised pelvic floor exercise program prescribed by a Physiotherapist as well as bowel management tools can be put in place to make life more manageable!
