Chronic pain can have a huge impact on life. In cases where the pain is severe, it can affect sleep, work, home life and leisure activities. Chronic pain limits mobility and reduces flexibility, strength, and endurance, making it challenging to get through daily tasks and activities. Various studies have found that women are more likely to suffer from chronic pain disorders. The main reason for this is that women’s bodies function differently than men’s. As such, women are prone to developing conditions that have chronic pain as a symptom, and they are innately more sensitive to pain.
Women’s health physiotherapy is a therapeutic treatment of all the disorders that affect the pelvis and pelvic floor. Designed with the science of movement, the treatment is broadly used for the assessment, maintenance and restoration of the physical function and performance of the body. It also helps to improve physical strength and get rid of any imbalances or dysfunctions caused by an injury. Many women turn to physiotherapy at the time of pregnancy and post-delivery. During pregnancy, women experience changes in their bodies such as stretched out muscles — especially those in the abdomen and your pelvic floor — and softening of ligaments. Post pregnancy, new mothers are at risk of back injury as they lift and bend more than usual. Physiotherapy helps to treat issues ranging from incontinence to prolapse, lower back/pelvic pain or constipation, which are all commonly observed during pregnancy, postnatal, menopause and ageing.
Benefits of physiotherapy include:
- Core strength
- Full body training
- Improved posture
- Reduced stress and back pain
- Increased flexibility in the body
- Improved muscular balance
- Prenatal & postnatal fitness
