Pelvic Health Pre and Post-Pregnancy

During pregnancy and childbirth, pelvic floor muscles can become weak or damaged, often resulting in incontinence, prolapse or other disorders. Pelvic floor therapy is effective at offering relief before, during and after vaginal or C-section deliveries. Therapy can help to improve muscle tone, reduce scar tissue, prevent abdominal separation, improve incontinence and prevent the development of prolapse.

Pelvic Floor Pain & Sexual Dysfunction

Pelvic floor pain and sexual dysfunction are common symptoms of pelvic floor disorders. Women with pelvic floor disorders may have difficulty achieving orgasm or experience pain during intercourse. Pelvic floor therapy can also address disorders such as vaginismus or vulvodynia. The therapist will work to strengthen and stretch the muscles and tissues of the pelvic floor to relieve pain and improve function.

Address Bladder Pain & Endometriosis

Women's pelvic floor therapy is often overlooked, but it can greatly impact various common pelvic issues such as bladder pain syndrome, endometriosis or interstitial cystitis. Through targeted exercise and manual therapy techniques, pelvic floor therapy can help improve the strength and flexibility of the pelvic floor muscles, providing relief from symptoms and promoting overall pelvic health.

Treating Menopausal Symptoms

Menopause can often lead to pelvic pain, incontinence, and weakness. In addition to addressing immediate concerns like incontinence and pelvic pain, pelvic floor therapy for menopause symptoms can also help to alleviate discomfort, prevent prolapse and improve sexual function. It is never too late to improve the strength and health of your pelvic floor muscles, and pelvic floor therapy can provide long-term benefits.

Reduce Pain & Restore Natural Function

What does a women's health physiotherapist do?


At Nordic Balance, both physios and osteopaths offer private women's health treatments. Depending on your symptoms, initial assessments will begin with examining your abdominal muscles, pelvis, and lumbar spine. Internal examinations may also be required to assess the tone, strength and control of your pelvic floor muscles identifying any injury, scarring, prolapse, tenderness and sensitivity.


What does pelvic health physiotherapy treatment involve?


Women's health physiotherapy, specifically pelvic health therapy, involves a personalised approach based on assessment and exercise. Manual therapy, relaxation techniques, and breathing exercises may also be utilised as a part of your treatment. 


It is essential for the patient to actively participate in their rehabilitation and follow their therapist's guidance for optimal outcomes. 


How many appointments do I need?


The number of appointments will depend on the individual and their specific goals and concerns. Women's Health Physiotherapists generally recommend a course of 3-5 sessions spread over four months. However, it may be necessary for some individuals to continue beyond this initial course to achieve their health goals fully.


When can I come for a post-natal check? 


Internal examinations can happen anytime from 6 weeks post pregnancy. We always encourage women who have given birth vaginally or by C-section to come for a check. We don't have to do the internal assessment, but it can be helpful to at least go through the case history for that part, as it can identify potential dysfunction related to pelvic floor health, which may not be obvious. Learn more about post-pregnancy assessments.


Perinatal Care

Women may experience abdominal separation, scar tissue, or incontinence after childbirth, and seeking treatment can help address these issues and prevent future problems. Women who have had a C-section or episiotomy may also benefit from treatment to aid healing and prevent scar tissue buildup.

Vaginismus & Vulvodynia

Conditions such as vaginismus and vulvodynia can cause significant discomfort and even prevent a woman from engaging in sexual activity. Non-invasive treatment options for these conditions addressing the physical symptoms and contributing psychological factors.

Incontinence, Weakness, & Prolapse

Pelvic floor disorders, such as incontinence, weakness, pelvic pain and prolapse, can significantly impact your quality of life. However, these conditions are treatable and manageable. Women need to be proactive about their pelvic health and seek help from a medical professional if they experience any symptoms.

Pelvic Floor Pain

Pelvic floor pain can significantly impact a woman's day-to-day life, affecting everything from daily tasks to sexual activity. Women's Health Physiotherapy and Osteopathy offer specialized treatment options for pelvic floor pain . Utilising manual therapy techniques and exercises to address muscle imbalances that may contribute to pelvic floor pain.

Diastasis Rectus Rehabilitation

Diastasis rectus, also known as abdominal separation, occurs when the abdominal muscles stretch and separate during pregnancy. This can lead to back pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, and poor core strength. However, with targeted exercises and proper technique, diastasis rectus can be healed and the muscles can be reconnected.

Bladder Pain Syndrome

Bladder pain syndrome or interstitial cystitis, is a condition that primarily affects women and often goes misdiagnosed or untreated. Women's Health Physiotherapy and Osteopathy can play a key role in managing bladder pain syndrome by addressing pelvic floor muscle dysfunction and associated musculoskeletal issues that contribute to symptoms.
