Physiotherapist Anna Clayton has completed additional Women’s health training on pelvic floor dysfunction and antenatal and post natal physiotherapy to provide a service at the clinic. Assessment/treatment is suitable for anyone experiencing issues following childbirth or menopause related symptoms.
Common symptoms during and after pregnancy can include back pain, pelvic girdle pain (PGP), diastasis recti, incontinence (stress and urge) and sciatica to name a few.
Appropriate treatment will be offered following an assessment. We will look at what muscles are working too hard and not hard enough to help support your pelvis and lower back. Often the pelvic floor can already be strong and overactive, resulting in the wrong muscles overcompensating and producing pain symptoms.
If indicated, an internal examination can be completed to determine how active/under active your pelvic floor muscles are which will establish how to help your symptoms. Appropriate information and consent is gained prior to an internal assessment and is not compulsory.
If you have any queries, please contact the clinic here.
