Women's health physio

Physiotherapy for gynaecological conditions

Physical therapy for bladder, bowel and pelvic conditions, and the menopause

Physiotherapy and women's health

Many women experience gynaecological issues at some point. Physio can make you feel confident and in control again by helping to rebuild the strength of your pelvic floor and core muscles, improve your posture and relieve pelvic and back pain. Our women's health physiotherapists treat all gynaecological, pelvic, bowel, antenatal and postnatal conditions; from stress incontinence to rehabilitation after a hysterectomy.

We run an outpatient service and we also treat women who are inpatients. What happens during your physio depends on your condition. However, it usually involves a consultation and an examination of your pelvic floor followed by a series of sessions which could include massage, postural and movement analyses, and exercises. You'll also be given exercises to do at home.

Our physiotherapy teams

At each HCA UK facility we have teams of physiotherapists who are experienced in supporting women after gynaecological or urological treatment, or during stages of pregnancy, including post pregnancy.


Physiotherapy may be given at the inpatient stage, or you may be given a series of sessions as an outpatient. 

 

Types of physiotherapy

Antenatal and Postnatal Physio

The function of your pelvic floor muscles, bladder or bowels might change during and after pregnancy. Our physiotherapists can assist with these aches and pains.

Physio after gynaecological surgery

Physiotherapy after surgery can help speed up your recovery and reduce the chance of long-term side effects.
