Women’s Health Physiotherapy
Many women suffer from long term Pelvic Pain due to Endometriosis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction or postural and lower back issues. Very often chronic pelvic pain can be completely resolved by a course of treatment that may include myofacial and trigger point release to abdominal and pelvic floor muscles followed by postural balancing and strengthening exercises.
1 in 3 women suffer from continence issues at some time in their lives. Pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, lower back pain, neurological conditions and postural problems can result in Pelvic Floor Weakness. Women participating in high impact exercise such as running, HIIT training and Cross-Fit are also at risk of causing pelvic floor weakness. A supervised program of exercises under the guidance of specialist Physio Tracey can help resolve problems within weeks.
Pregnancy Related Pelvic Girdle Pain can make this special time very difficult to manage. Often PSD and pelvic girdle pain can be quickly resolved in the hands of the right therapist. Tracey is able to address postural weakness, pelvic muscle dysfunction and where necessary provide appropriate supports or belts to sustain you through your pregnancy and delivery.
