What is Women’s Health?
Women’s Health is a specialised area of healthcare that caters to issues specific to female physiology and biology. These issues may include pregnancy and postpartum care, pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic pain, breast issues, reproductive health, and menopausal wellness.
Women’s Health Physiotherapy focuses on anatomical areas and conditions specific to women, like strengthening the pelvic floor. Our experienced physiotherapists also provide emotional well-being support as part of our holistic healthcare services.
What’s the difference between Women’s Health and Men’s Health?
Women’s Health and Men’s Health are two distinct areas of healthcare. Though there are some similarities, such as pelvic pain and dysfunction among both genders, women frequently require specialised treatments for their health concerns such as prenatal and postnatal care, perineal pain, endometriosis, and incontinence, among others.
How can physiotherapy help to improve Women’s Health?
Women’s Health physiotherapy focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of common women’s health issues, and can be of immense benefit to women of all ages and stages.
Techniques and practices that can improve Women’s Health include manual therapy, exercise prescriptions designed to improve core and pelvic floor musculature, and patient education and guidance. Women’s Health physiotherapy can also help women prepare for childbirth and manage post-partum recovery.
Can pregnant women do physiotherapy?
Women can benefit significantly from physiotherapy during pregnancy. The physical changes that occur during pregnancy can often lead to various musculoskeletal discomforts such as lower back pain, pelvic girdle pain, and pelvic floor dysfunction.
Women’s Health physiotherapists specialize in providing safe and effective care for pregnant women to manage these common discomforts and promote a healthy pregnancy.
One of the key benefits of physiotherapy for pregnant women is the management of musculoskeletal pains and aches. As the body adjusts to the growing baby, it can result in increased stress on the spine, pelvis, and surrounding muscles. Physiotherapists can evaluate your condition and provide targeted treatment options such as gentle exercises, stretching, or manual therapy to alleviate pain and improve mobility.
Prenatal exercise is another important aspect of physiotherapy for pregnant women. Exercise programs designed specifically for pregnancy can help improve strength, endurance, and flexibility. These exercises target the specific muscles and areas of the body that are most affected during pregnancy, such as the core and pelvic floor muscles. Strengthening these muscles can provide support for the growing baby and help prevent or manage conditions like diastasis recti, which is the separation of the abdominal muscles.
Can elderly women do physiotherapy?
Absolutely! Physiotherapy can be highly beneficial for elderly women. As we age, our bodies undergo various changes that can impact mobility and overall health. Women’s Health Physiotherapy provides specialised care that addresses age-related health issues commonly experienced by elderly women.
One of the primary concerns for elderly women is osteoporosis, a condition characterised by weakened bones. Women are at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis due to hormonal changes during menopause. Women’s Health Physiotherapy can help by providing exercises and interventions to improve bone density and reduce the risk of fractures.
Arthritis is another common health issue faced by elderly women. Physiotherapy can play a crucial role in managing arthritis-related pain and stiffness. Through targeted exercises, manual therapy techniques, and education, physiotherapists can help reduce pain, improve joint flexibility, and enhance overall joint function.
Balance and mobility are also significant concerns for elderly women. Falls can have serious consequences for older adults, leading to fractures and other injuries. Women’s Health Physiotherapy can assess balance and gait, and provide exercises that promote strength and stability. These exercises can also help prevent falls and improve confidence in daily activities.
