What to expect from your Women’s Health Consult?

In the initial 1 hour consult your physiotherapist will take a detailed history to understand your problem and the goals you wish to achieve.

From there, a thorough assessment of the pelvis, abdominals, pelvic floor and pelvic organs will be performed to make a diagnosis.

After diagnosis your physiotherapist will give you a detailed explanation of your condition and develop a treatment plan that aligns with your goals.

How do we treat these conditions?

Your physiotherapist will use a wide variety of evidence-based treatment techniques depending on your condition and what you wish to achieve.

Common treatment techniques include:

– Pelvic floor retraining and exercises

– Pilates-based abdominal wall exercises

– Soft tissue techniques to treat pelvic pain and lower back pain

– Prenatal exercise programs

– Pessary fitting for pelvic organ prolapse

– Provision of pelvic muscle stimulators/educators to initiate a contraction in very weak pelvic floors

– Bladder and bowel retraining programs

– Fitting of pelvic braces and abdominal supports

– Return to exercise/sport program post-natal and post gynaecological/colorectal/urological surgery
