A pelvic and women’s health physiotherapist (otherwise known as pelvic, obstetric and gynaecological physiotherapist) specialises in treating women throughout their childbearing years and beyond. This can mean treating pregnancy related back and pelvic pain (during pregnancy or afterwards), pelvic floor muscle weakness and abdominal muscle separation after birth, pelvic floor muscle dysfunction at any time of life, prolapse, bladder and bowel control or function issues, pelvic issues relating to menopause, and pelvic pain at any stage in life.
How can physiotherapy help women?
Women are prone to particular conditions as a result of childbearing. 1 in 3 women have issues with bladder control at some point in their adult life, more than 50% of pregnant women experience significant back pain and 1 in 9 women suffer with chronic pelvic pain. Pelvic and women’s health physiotherapists have specialist knowledge and skills - making a diagnosis, using specialist treatment techniques and prescribing exercise programmes that consider the differences in the female body.
Tell us about your experience in this field
I started my career in 1997 in this field at the Royal Free, a large London teaching hospital. For 12 of those years I was the lead physiotherapist for women’s health, running one of the largest services in the country. I also work privately alongside some of my consultant colleagues in Harley Street, London.
What do you find most rewarding in your work?
I am passionate about my work, it makes an enormous difference to peoples’ quality of life. Some of my clients start their treatment having had debilitating pelvic pain for years. It is incredibly rewarding to hear how much physiotherapy changes someone’s pain or function, and what that has allowed them to do – whether it’s giving them the confidence to have another child, return to the work place, or simply return to an exercise class they like. Physiotherapy works!
