WOMEN'S HEALTH PHYSIOTHERAPY

Our Women’s Health Physiotherapist, Jane Le Fevre, has a special interest in 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.

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)

With our passion for women's health we treat and educate women of all ages and walks of life - you don't need to be pregnant or have had a baby!

 

Prenatal - Whether you're currently pregnant or planning to start soon, we offer exercises and education tailored to prepare you for birth, prevent postpartum pelvic floor issues and manage back and pelvic pain.

 

Postpartum - If you've already had your little bub arrive and you're thinking perhaps something doesn't feel right, or you just want to check up on the current state of your pelvic floor - we can definitely help!  We also treat and educate on many different pregnancy-related conditions such as diastasis recti, incontinence, pain with sex, prolapse among many others.  

Menopause- If you’ve noticed changes to your body as your your menstrual cycle slows or ceases, this can be due to the decrease in oestrogen levels. This can cause changes in bladder and bowel control, vaginal dryness, prolapse, urinary tract infections, decreased bone strength, not to mention hot flushes, insomnia, and anxiety!

 

Pelvic Health physiotherapy treatment strategies may include bladder and bowel training, correct pelvic floor training, appropriate general fitness exercise, relaxation methods, dietary advice,  use of vaginal moisturizers and recommendation for  medical, counselling or complementary interventions as needed. 

At RedoHealth, we realise that it is essential to look at the bigger picture (the whole body) for a long term resolution to these ailments.

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.

If you are presenting with a musculoskeletal condition related to pregnancy or life as a new mum, all of our therapists are experienced in treating these conditions.
