This appointment is suitable for women wanting help, support and treatment with Womens Health conditions. Common presentations we treat on a regular basis include stress incontinence, urinary urgency, pelvic organ prolapse, persistent pelvic pain, vulvodynia, diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation), constipation and faecal incontinence, genitourinary symptoms associated with menopause and many more.
Assessments take place in a safe and secure environment with a female Chartered Physiotherapist who has a passion for Women’s Health related conditions. We treat women of ALL ages. Our facilities and equipment are unrivalled and our staff are advanced pelvic health physios, founders of @everything-natal and Mummy MOT trained. We regularly use transperineal ultrasound, lower abdominal ultrasound and EMG feedback as part of our assessment.
It may be that a pelvic floor internal examination is indicated from the assessment. This would usually consist of an internal assessment of the pelvic floor. This would only ever be performed with your consent and you can change your mind at any time. You also have the option to bring a chaperone with you to your appointment. If you do not want an internal assessment, please do not worry as it is only a part of the examination in many cases. There are so many other things we can do. We also have a non invasive biofeedback sensor that you can sit on to provide us with an idea on how your pelvic floor is functioning. Most importantly there is absolutely nothing to worry about. We are used to seeing many women every day and we are passionate about making a difference. Physiotherapy in most cases really does work.
The results of the full assessment will be discussed with you. Treatment options and a bespoke programme of physiotherapy will be provided. We are PASSIONATE about improving the health and wellbeing of our female clients.
