What should you expect
All Women’s Health consultations are run in our private treatment room with our Women’s Health Physiotherapist. The first session involves a comprehensive history about your pelvic floor function, obstetric and sexual background and bladder and bowel habits. To assist us in accurately assessing your pelvic floor, an internal examination may be recommended however it is not always required. Together, you and your Women’s Health Physiotherapist will establish an appropriate treatment pathway that is specialised to you.
Treatment options may include
- Pelvic floor strengthening program
- Bladder retraining
- Relaxation techniques
- Therapeutic ultrasound for the treatment of mastitis and blocked milk ducts
- Use of supportive devices e.g. pregnancy belts, electrical stimulation, pessaries
Pregnancy is an exciting but sometimes scary moment in your life. The knowledge you have and decisions you make can impact how you feel during and after your pregnancy. Our team of health professionals are committed to supporting you throughout your entire journey. Some women do not know what exercise they can do during their pregnancy. Together with our Exercise Physiologist, we will develop the best exercise plan for you. We provide pre-natal pelvic floor checks and educate you on relaxation techniques in the lead up to the birth of your child.
As one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers, prostate cancer significantly affects the lives of men. A common side effect of having prostate surgery is urinary incontinence in which intervention by a Physiotherapist can resolve symptoms. This can start from 4 weeks after your surgery. It is best to have a physiotherapy appointment before surgery so you are well educated on your pelvic floor and exercises that will be important for bladder control.
At Concentric we work within a multidisciplinary team including Dietitions and Exercise Physiologists. This means you have the comfort of knowing you are getting high quality and holistic treatment.
We also offer Core Strengthening and Mobility which focuses on building strength and coordination of the pelvic floor whilst improving overall posture, balance, muscle strength and muscle control.
