Women's Health

Our physiotherapist Lucy has done further study in Women’s Pelvic health, and can help you with a range of your women’s health needs. Some of the conditions that can be addressed include prenatal and postnatal physiotherapy, pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions, abdominal separation, urinary/faecal incontinence, overactive bladder and pelvic organ prolapse.


How can a Women’s Health Physiotherapist help?

  • Pelvic floor muscle assessment to diagnose pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions.

    • Evidence demonstrates that ~ 84.5% of women can contract their pelvic floor muscles correctly when asked. However, 31.4% of women with both pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence contract their pelvic floor incorrectly 

  • Pelvic floor muscle training 

    • most effective first point of treatment for stage l-ll uterine, bladder and rectal prolapses

    • Can be an effective treatment for urinary/faecal incontinence, depending on the type of incontinence

  • Bladder assessments and bladder diaries 

  • Bladder training programmes


*Please note Level 1 Women’s Health Physiotherapists are unable to perform internal examinations. Management of the above conditions often is sufficient with external examinations, if an internal examination is required she will refer you appropriately.
