There are many conditions that are specific to women, most occurring during and after pregnancy.
Women’s Health Physiotherapy is a specialised area, which deals with issues of pelvic floor weakness and incontinence. It also encompasses the issues a woman may face during the prenatal and postnatal periods. This includes pelvic and sacro-iliac joint (SIJ) instabilities, low back and neck pain, weak abdominal muscles and mastitis.
Urinary incontinence is a common problem in women across the lifespan and can include symptoms of stress or urge incontinence, urgency and frequency.
At Complete Wellness Physiotherapy we utilise specialised Real Time Ultrasound equipment to measure the pelvic floor activation and strength. It is a painless non-invasive way in which we can image your pelvic floor, ensure the muscles are working correctly and effectively and teach correct pelvic floor activation.
We also specialise in Clinical Pilates at Complete Wellness Physiotherapy, which forms an important part of retraining pelvic floor and abdominal activation.
