1 in 3 women experience incontinence.

Don’t suffer in silence!

Indications to see a gender health physio

  • Urinary incontinence and an overactive bladder (1 in 3 women may experience this but never seek any help due to embarrassment)
  • Pelvic floor muscle weakness – this is especially common in pregnant women and menopause.
  • Prolapse (bladder, bowel or uterus) – another common condition in women with children; symptoms may include a heaviness or a lump feeling in the vagina.
  • Painful sexual intercourse – this may be caused by overactive pelvic floor muscles, scar tissue post childbirth or a number of other reasons which your Gender Health Physio will be able to help identify and treat,
  • Bowel incontinence/constipation – up to 10% of the general population suffer from bowel incontinence/constipation which can lead to pelvic floor weakness and prolapse.
  • Mastitis (blocked milk ducts) – a common condition related to breast feeding and pumping.
  • Prostate problems in men – Conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostatitis, and prostate cancer can cause related urinary symptoms which can affect urgency, frequency and difficulty with urination.

This is by far not a comprehensive list of conditions that a gender physiotherapist is able to assess and treat. Our Post-graduate trained Titled Women’s Men’s and Pelvic Health physiotherapist Muirna is highly experienced with over a decade in this field.
