Women’s Health Physiotherapy refers to the treatment and management of any health concerns related to pelvic floor dysfunction, pre and post-natal rehabilitation, continence, pelvic pain and pre and post-menopausal changes.

Our Physiotherapists Roshini Nadarajah and Meredith Chapple, have completed specialised training in the management of conditions unique to women. Fortunately, there are many options available which can improve and often cure these conditions.

Women’s health conditions we can help you with you include:

  • Pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Urinary incontinence (including stress, urge and mixed incontinence)
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Dyspareunia (pain with intercourse)
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pre and post-natal care
  • Overactive bladder
  • Bowel incontinence and constipation
  • Severe period pain
  • Pain with urinating or passing a bowel motion
  • Nocturia (waking during the night to go to the toilet)

What to expect at your first Women’s Health Physiotherapy Session

The first session is a Women’s Health Assessment starting with a comprehensive history about your pelvic floor function, bladder and bowel habits, sexual and obstetric background. Sometimes we may recommend an internal vaginal examination. Although not always required, this can help us properly assess your pelvic floor function, which will in turn help us work out what the appropriate treatment option is for you.

Following the initial assessment, we will then come up with the best management plan for you. This may involve a pelvic floor strengthening program, retraining of your bladder habits, relaxation and breathing techniques, possible lifestyle changes and in some cases, the use of specific pelvic floor equipment may be indicated (e.g. electrical stimulation unit or weighted pelvic floor training tools). We will also determine if any further input from other health professionals or onward referral is needed.
