Our physiotherapists at Glen Eira Physiotherapy and Physiolates Centre are passionate about all therapeutic treatments of women’s health in Melbourne. Women’s health can sometimes be an embarrassing topic and many women don’t know what help is available. Many times women experiencing pain don’t look any different and keep their condition private.Womens Health Physio Melbourne

Our physiotherapists approach each individual with compassion and sensitivity to achieve the best outcome for you. Did you know women’s health physiotherapy treatment can contain all disorders affecting the pelvis and pelvic floor? Contrary to people’s thinking; bladder and pelvic floor problems are NOT a ‘typical’ part of being a woman - although it continues to affect 25% of women in Australia, more common than asthma (10%). {Australian Bureau of Statistics Data)

Women’s Health Physiotherapy can help you as our pelvic floor is an intricate group of muscles that aid many of our body’s pelvic functions; with many issues arising when our pelvic muscles are too weak.

Our women’s health assessments may contain an internal vaginal examination. Our therapists will spend the time asking questions about your personal experiences to best determine our diagnosis and treatment.

Where does physiotherapy fit in?

A regular visit to a physiotherapist can keep your body aligned and in balance, which means that, no matter the challenges you encounter each day, you can make sure it’s the best possible version of yourself that faces them. A ‘you’ with balanced hormones, freedom of movement and without stress.

In addition to ongoing care for your body, a physio is a great support if you are thinking about starting a family. Some studies have shown that stress is part of an unwelcome cycle when it comes to conception. It can cause issues in conceiving, which then increases stress. Removing the physical tension from your body and leaving you free from stress can help to increase fertility. And this is where a physiotherapist can help.

Many of our condition management treatments may involve:

  • Individualised pelvic floor re-training and exercises
  • Bladder training & urge suppression
  • Pilates Classes
