Women’s Health Physiotherapy

Pilates 1

  • Up to 1 in 3 women will have urinary incontinence after they have their baby
  • 1 in 2 women experience some degree of prolapse
  • 25% of women attempting to do a pelvic floor contraction are using the wrong technique
  • Specific Women’s Health Physiotherapy helps these issues

Whilst incontinence and pelvic floor weakness may be common, it’s not normal, and it’s not something that is without hope. There is strong evidence to suggest that physiotherapy can have positive outcomes with many women’s health conditions when treatment is conducted by a specifically trained physiotherapist. At mhealth, we’re committed to ongoing professional education and applying the most relevant and up-to-date treatment options.

We also recognise that seeking help for women’s health related conditions can be a sensitive issue for many women, and at mhealth we are committed to providing our utmost care, discretion and respect.
