Women’s Pelvic Health Physiotherapists play an important role in the treatment of many conditions affecting women's pelvic health. Pelvic floor muscles can weaken for a number of reasons, including childbirth and ageing. These weakened muscles can lead to stress incontinence – the leakage of urine when there is extra pressure on the bladder through coughing, laughing or exercising like running and jumping.

At Humanity Warwick we offer a specialised service to women with bladder, bowel and pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse and sexual dysfunction.

Following a detailed assessment, the right treatment will be tailored for you

 WHAT WE TREAT
 

  • Stress incontinence - urinary leaking with certain activities.

  • Overactive bladder - having a sudden desire to go to the toilet immediately with possible leaking of urine before reaching the toilet. There may be a need to visit the toilet more frequently than normal.

  • Mixed urinary incontinence – a combination of stress incontinence and over active bladder.

  • Bladder pain syndrome

  • Bowel symptoms - faecal incontinence and constipation

  • Post Bowel cancer issues - lower anterior resection syndrome.

  • Prolapse of the front and/or back vaginal wall(s) – weakening of the support structures that support the vagina, resulting in bulging of the pelvic organs into the vagina.

  • Pain related pelvic floor dysfunction e.g. vaginismus.

  • Post natal - pelvic girdle pain / Post forceps / Ventouse / third / fourth degree tears.

  • Diastasis recti - tummy gap post pregnancy.

  • Post-operative rehabilitation - following C-section, Pelvic floor repair, hysterectomy.
