Women’s Health/ pelvic Floor

Women’s health and pelvic floor are two related areas of healthcare that focus on the unique needs and concerns of women’s reproductive and urinary health. The pelvic floor refers to the muscles, ligaments, and tissues that support the organs in the pelvic area, including the uterus, bladder, and rectum.
Pelvic floor dysfunction is a common issue among women, especially those who have given birth, experienced menopause, or have certain medical conditions. Symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction may include pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and sexual dysfunction.
Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialized form of physical therapy that focuses on the assessment and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction. During a pelvic floor physiotherapy session, a trained physiotherapist will perform a thorough assessment of the pelvic floor muscles to identify any areas of weakness or tension.
Treatment may include exercises to strengthen or relax the pelvic floor muscles, education on bladder and bowel habits, biofeedback therapy, and manual therapy techniques such as massage or trigger point release.
It is important for women to prioritize their reproductive and urinary health by seeking regular check-ups and speaking with their healthcare providers about any concerns or symptoms they may be experiencing.
