Nicola Milby is our Women’s health expert.
Women’s health can be a complex aspect of physiotherapy, it is important to have a thorough assessment and treatment plan from a physiotherapist with the correct skill set.
Some common conditions (list is not conclusive) are:
- Urinary incontinence
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
- Ante-natal and post-natal lower back pain
- Pelvic floor weakness
All of these conditions affect women differently; therefore treatment should be unique to each individual.
Many people think it is acceptable to function on a daily basis and within the sporting world with urinary leakage.
However, this is not acceptable. Don’t suffer in silence, seek help now.
