Women's Health Physio

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 myofascial 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.

Who Needs a Mummy MOT®?

Up to half of all women experience weakness in both the abdominal muscles and pelvic floor muscles after pregnancy and up to a third still have a tummy gap at eight weeks post-birth. This can cause instability or poor core strength leading to women developing pelvic or back pain or bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunction. These conditions should not be something you should just put up with as a result of having a baby.

It’s recommended that women have an initial assessment after their 6-8 week GP check, but we also treat women who gave birth years ago that may still have a tummy gap or related pelvic floor issues.

“Through Pilates, Tracey has helped me to improve my strength and flexibility. She is an exceptional professional who takes time to understand my injury issues and provides me with the information to manage them effectively.

“Imagine that you are standing in a sports shop and you are looking at all of the beautiful colours of running shorts and leggings. Then think about the feeling of knowing that you are not able to buy anything other than the black ones , because they are the ones that can hide those embarrassing moments that happen when you are out running and you have the audacity to try and run a little bit faster than a snail or have to run uphill or on some uneven ground…!

Everywhere you look there are adverts for products that will hide the problem but won’t really solve it. Luckily I was attending a group Pilates session with Tracey and happened to notice that she had a 6 week pelvic health course running straight after my normal session. With a bit of trepidation, I booked on, wondering what on earth I was letting myself in for….. I needn’t have worried, this went well beyond the “squeeze and hold” technique that we are all told about, which is great when you struggle to squeeze in the right place and the hold phase is a bit short and very temporary! I learnt a bit of extra biology that I didn’t know before and this really helped. The exercises were surprisingly varied but incredibly beneficial, and in just 6 weeks, my pelvic floor felt stronger than it had in years. Most importantly, I had the tools and the knowledge to carry on well beyond the course, and I continue to practice every day … Now if you will excuse me I have some pink patterned running leggings to buy…”
