Whether you’re pregnant, a new mother, awaiting or recovering from a gynaecological surgery or simply wanting to take control of your health and wellbeing, women’s health Physiotherapy may be what you’re looking for!

There is an increased amount of awareness and attention with respect to women’s health in recent times, when a woman continues to play multiple roles in her life, leaving her with literally no time at all to attend to herself.  Many women would be unaware of how physiotherapy can help you after childbirth or major gynaecological surgery. Lifestyle changes associated with normal physiological processes like middle and old age, menstruation and menopause have significantly been affecting women’s bodies at an alarming rate. Most women assume that this is a normal process and they should adapt themselves accordingly and continue with their routines as very little can be done. There are many issues with recovering after having a baby that women feel are ‘normal’ and simply have to deal with. A woman’s body goes through many changes and some issues may arise such as bladder or bowel issues including incontinence, pelvic pain and diastasis recti (tummy separation) often resulting in backache, hip pain, perineal pain, breast pain and tenderness and even increased fatigability. This is exactly where a women’s health physiotherapist can perform a miraculous job.
