Women’s & Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

What is Women’s Health Physiotherapy?

***Please note – Lillie Pearse, our WH Physio, has moved down to Margaret River in 2024. We do not currently have a postgraduate women’s health physiotherapist, although both Nicola and Kaitlyn have interests in this area. We will be looking to add a postgraduate WH Physio to the team again soon.

A postgraduate-trained Women’s & Pelvic Health Physiotherapist treats problems related to pelvic floor, continence, pelvic pain and dysfunction, and sexual health. They are highly trained and experienced in assisting women through the ante- and post-natal periods and providing guidance and treatment of a range of childbirth related issues. A Women’s Health Physiotherapist can assist women of all ages who are experiencing sexual dysfunction, pelvic pain, having challenges with continence and more.

These consults will normally involve a review of your history and symptoms, a thorough examination, which can include the use of real-time ultrasound and internal examination, and treatment techniques including manual therapy, pelvic floor training, education on your condition, lifestyle approaches and targeted exercises. We encourage anyone, females and males, experiencing pelvic floor or related issues to seek an early assessment, as starting treatment early can make a huge difference to your quality of life!
