CAN PHYSIOTHERAPY HELP IN WOMEN’S HEALTH?
PELVIC FLOOR PHYSIOTHERAPY
Many women are not aware that Physiotherapy can cure or help disorders affecting the pelvis and pelvic floor, e.g. incontentance related to pelvic floor dysfunction. This lack of awareness means many women have struggled for many years with issues around the pevlis or pevlic floor, often but not always related to pregnancy. There is now strong evidence indicating that conservative Physiotherapy from practitioners with a special interest in Women’s Health can help.
With our Senior Physiotherapist, Vicky, Vitalize Physiotherapy is pleased and proud to be able to offer appointments with such practitioners.
