    Health of Women The clinical fields of obstetrics and gynecology gave rise to the field of physiotherapy, which treats women during and after childbirth. It also includes treating incontinence, teaching prenatal classes, and caring for women having gynecological surgery. All women's health issues, including incontinence, pelvic/vaginal discomfort, musculoskeletal pain during pregnancy and after giving birth, osteoporosis, lymphedema, rehabilitation after breast surgery, education, prevention, wellness, and exercise, are now included in the practice's scope. Physiotherapy is beneficial for women of all ages, including young athletes, expectant mothers, menopausal women, and elderly women.


    Your presenting condition will determine your assessment and course of therapy. Usually, it begins with obtaining a thorough and private medical history. Even though talking about these delicate topics might be challenging, knowing when your symptoms started and how they affected your day-to-day activities is essential for determining the course of your therapy. The physical examination will probably start with a look of your pelvis, lumbar spine, and abdominal muscles. This is a critical component of your test and is required to determine the strength, control, and tone of your pelvic floor muscles. Finger probing will be used to evaluate the pelvic floor muscles and connective tissue for evidence of prolapse of the pelvic organs, injury or scarring, muscular tone, tenderness, sensation, and neural sensitivity. The strength and endurance of the pelvic floor muscle will then be evaluated. It's critical to ascertain whether the deep and superficial pelvic floor muscles, as well as the left and right, are cooperating, and if not, why not. We will go over the evaluation results with you, and your treatment plan will be based on those results as well as your symptoms.


    Pelvic floor issues and other diseases unique to women are treated with physiotherapy for women. Pelvic floor dysfunction and discomfort are persistent issues for millions of women. Women who have weakening pelvic muscles or rips in the connective tissue surrounding their pelvic organs are said to have pelvic floor problems. Many women are unaware of the various forms of therapy that might enhance their quality of life and help them manage their pain.

    Physiotherapy should be given extra consideration throughout pregnancy. This helps to ease any pain or discomfort during and after pregnancy, as well as before. Lower back discomfort is common in pregnant women, and it can make it difficult for them to obtain a good night's sleep and carry out daily duties. Using stability exercises that target the muscles around your spine, physiotherapy is a useful technique to treat any lower back aches and pains. Physiotherapists can assist both pregnant and non-pregnant ladies in managing and alleviating their back discomfort. The most crucial treatment we can provide to women before, during, and after pregnancy is likely pelvic floor therapy. The muscles in the base of the abdomen that connect to the pelvis and support a woman's uterus, bladder, and bowel movements are the main target of this kind of physiotherapy. Prenatal pelvic floor physiotherapy can minimize pelvic injury and help your body get ready for labor. In order to strengthen your possibly stretched, strained, and frequently torn pelvic muscles, postnatal therapy is also essential. Pelvic floor therapy can help avoid lower back discomfort and urine incontinence both before and after delivery. Physiotherapy is often a fantastic and safe way for expectant mothers to maintain their level of activity, which is crucial for a simpler delivery.
