So what do our women’s health physiotherapy services include?
Pelvic floor physiotherapy, exams and exercises
Many women will experience some sort of pelvic floor issues in their life, that we can then help compat with the use of pelvic floor physiotherapy in Brisbbane. The pelvic floor is important for a variety of reasons, and having a weak pelvic floor can result in a range of issues.
These can include:
- Urinary incontinence (including stress incontinence or urgency incontinence)
- Faecal incontinence
- Pelvic pain
- Sexual dysfunction
- Staying active throughout pregnancy
Balance your body so you can live without unnecessary worry
Our women’s health specialist will sit down with you for an initial assessment to understand what you’re experiencing and formulate a treatment plan to strengthen your pelvic floor with a range of targeted exercises. We’ll also give you a range of strategic exercises that you can complete at home to continue achieving the results you want.
Comfortable pessary fittings and internal exams
While the physiotherapist’s office probably isn’t your first thought of where to go for an internal exam, at Graceville Physiotherapy, Pain Slayers, our experienced, professional physios will help you feel comfortable while they diagnose your issue.
Our physios are also experienced in treating pelvic organ prolapse. While experiencing a prolapse can feel embarrassing, it’s a condition that can be treated and managed in a variety of ways. These include pessaries and pelvic floor exercises.
A pessary is a small device that’s inserted through the vagina to help support the pelvic organs. Some types of pessary can even assist with urinary incontinence. If you think you’re experiencing an organ prolapse, make sure you talk to our experienced, compassionate women’s health physio.
Physiotherapy treatment for abdominal separation
Abdominal separation is quite common in a variety of pregnant women, but it’s important to get it treated to avoid it becoming any worse. Our experienced women’s health physio will be able to measure any separation and offer a strategy of gentle exercises to strengthen your deep stomach muscles.
Strengthening these core muscles before or in the early stages of your pregnancy is a great way to minimise the risk of abdominal separation, so if you’re planning to try for a baby or recently found out you’re expecting, come see us at Graceville Physio, Pain Slayers.
Treatment for the symptoms of mastitis
If you’re about to breastfeed, are breastfeeding, or have just finished breastfeeding, you should be aware of mastitis and how to recognise the symptoms. A blockage in the milk duct, mastitis is a very painful condition that stops the flow of milk and can result in inflammation.
If at-home remedies like resting or icing aren’t working, make an appointment with our women’s health physio to start treatment and relieve the pain.
We also aim to educate expecting mothers about how to recognise the early symptoms of mastitis to be able to get treatment before the blockage – and associated pain – sets in.
Pregnancy care and antenatal classes
At Graceville Physio, Pain Slayers, we’re committed to helping women through pregnancy and easing the aches and pains of their changing body. We offer a variety of pregnancy physio treatments, including pilates, massage and clinical exercise plans. Our aim is to relieve or eliminate pregnancy-related back and pelvic pain to ensure you have the best, pain-free experience during pregnancy.
We also offer antenatal classes to show you some appropriate exercises and how you can keep your body healthy in anticipation of your new baby. Additionally, we can advise you of how best to return to exercise after childbirth to ensure your body is ready.
