WHY GO TO A WOMEN'S HEALTH PHYSIOTHERAPIST?

May 18, 2018

Chartered Physiotherapists with specialist training in Women’s Health and Continence offer women of all ages physiotherapy treatment for bladder, bowel and pelvic floor conditions.
To work in this area, Chartered Physiotherapists must have completed specialised post-graduate training, in addition to their third level degree qualification. You will find these specialists working in public and private hospitals, in private practice and in the primary care sector, and they typically deal with conditions such as:
Urinary incontinence
Stress Urinary Incontinence
Urge Urinary Incontinence
Overactive Bladder
Pregnancy & Postnatal

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction·
Prolapse
Sexual Dysfunction (Dyspareunia)
Chronic Pelvic Pain
Bowel Conditions

What will my Chartered Physiotherapist do?
Your first session with a physiotherapist will include a detailed assessment of your condition, beginning with questions about your symptoms and general medical history. You can rest assured that everything you tell the physiotherapist will remain completely confidential.
The assessment will be followed by a physical examination. The type of examination carried out will depend on the condition you are attending with, and may include an assessment of posture and function, muscle tone, flexibility and strength.
What are the treatments?
Based on the results of the assessment, your Chartered Physiotherapist will recommend a treatment programme that has been specifically developed for you, so there is no standard treatment in this area.
Treatment for pelvic floor/bladder & bowel conditions may include:
Exercises to strengthen or release the pelvic floor muscles
Manual therapy
Advice about healthy bladder and bowel habits
