Incontinence and prolapseThis may include prolapse and urinary incontinence, distressing and common problems that can significantly impact quality of life for a woman. One third of all women who’ve given birth experience bladder leakage or weakness. As many as 50% of women suffer from some level of prolapse, according to the Continence Foundation of Australia. These issues require careful assessment and individualised treatment.
Your pelvic floor explained
The best approach is an individualised one. Individual assessment of your pelvic muscles with your women’s health pelvic floor physiotherapist will ensure you are performing the correct action with your muscles and allow you to work on what your body individually needs. Think about your pelvic floor muscles like all of the other muscles in your body. Just as some women have really strong leg muscles, others need to improve leg strength through exercise: some women know how to do a squat; others need guidance. Your pelvic floor muscles are the same and require assessment and prescription of tailored pelvic floor muscle exercises by our qualified team of physiotherapists.
Supporting women of all ages
It is Healthfix’s integrated, holistic approach to healthcare, including women’s health and pelvic floor physiotherapy that allows us to treat the woman as a whole. From seeing a pelvic floor physiotherapist during pregnancy in collaboration with a dietitian to manage conditions like gestational diabetes, through to working together with the exercise team to get you back to your post-partum fitness goals.
We are here to support women through pregnancy, post-partum, menopause and resulting bladder concerns. We have the ability to not only address this and improve quality of life but also begin to engage in long term preventative health measures such as exercise and healthy diet for good bone density into ageing.
