This area of Physiotherapy is aimed specifically at treating pain and or dysfunction unique to the female body across the lifespan, from young athletes, childbearing women, menopausal and the elderly. It includes all health and wellness concerns that may occur in women.
Women’s health Physiotherapy was initially aimed at treating pregnant women for lower back and pelvic pain. However, over the years this specialty has grown to include all health concerns that may occur within the female body, from young and active, to older and more sedentary.
One in three women experience pain or dysfunction specifically related to a women’s health problem. Many times, this is regarded as normal or a part of life, or too embarrassing to seek medical help. This should not be the case as Physiotherapy has been shown to have a positive effect in treating these health concerns.
