What is Women’s Health?
Women and men have very different physical bodies and hormonal make up, that when faced with specific demands or shifts, such as child birth or menopause, reacts in a way that is specific to women. This requires a tailored, bespoke approach to rehabilitation that takes into account these differences in order to return you to full health and function.
Women’s health originally was aimed at post-natal and post-menopausal stages of life. However, now the scope of practice has expanded to include all health issues that affect women in a unique way to men. This includes
- Elite sports women
- Pelvic pain,
- Prenatal and postpartum dysfunction or pain,
- Osteoporosis (brittle bones),
- Rehabilitation following breast cancer and reconstructive surgeries,
- Rehabilitation following pelvic organ prolapse surgeries,
Helping women across their lifespan – from the young woman who wants to engage in sport, to the childbearing woman, all the way to the menopausal and elderly woman. Please contact reception 0852802877 for further details or to request a call back from our Chartered Physiotherapists.
