WOMEN’S HEALTH PHYSIOTHERAPY HARLEY STREET

HARLEY STREET WOMEN’S HEALTH PHYSIO CLINIC

Women’s health is a specialised area within physiotherapy that addresses a wide range issue affecting the pelvic and abdominal region ranging from pregnancy related complications to urinary incontinence in athletes. Many women avoid seeking help due to embarrassment or attribute their symptoms to a normal part of being a woman. Although, these problems are common, they are not normal. Physiotherapy has been shown to be an effective treatment in pelvic health issues, improving symptoms and women’s quality of life. Women should not suffer in silence anymore.

  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Stress incontinence
  • Urinary Urgency
  • Faecal and gas incontinence
  • Episiotomy (tear or cut post pregnancy)
  • Diastasis (separation of abdominal muscles following pregnancy)
  • Post caesarean care
  • Pregnancy related musculoskeletal pain
  • Safe return to exercise postpartum
  • Painful sex or penetration (Dyspareunia)
  • Improve sexual function

What to expect at your appointment?

To gain a full picture of your condition we will ask you a detailed history of your symptoms and lifestyle. We will then do a thorough objective assessment which will include an external and internal (vaginal) pelvic floor examination. This may not be compulsory in all cases, but it plays a valuable part of the assessment, which will help our physiotherapists to decide the best treatment for you. If you wish you can bring a chaperone to your assessment with you. We appreciate that this can be daunting for most people, but you will be given the opportunity to ask as many questions as you like and discuss which treatment options you feel most comfortable with, with your physiotherapist.
What’s involved in the treatment?
Following your initial assessment, your physiotherapist will advise you on what treatments are most suitable for your condition. This will also include a home treatment plan and lifestyle advise. Common tools that we use as part of our treatment include;
  • Pelvic floor training and exercises
  • Muscle and nerve stimulation using electrotherapy
  • Manual therapy for contracted or painful pelvic floor muscles
  • Pilates
  • Breathing exercises
  • TECAR therapy (radiofrequency) in conjunction with manual therapy to promote scar healing and reduce inflammation and pain in pelvic floor tissues.
  • Deep electromagnetic therapy for muscle stimulation and reduction of pain.

TESTIMONIALS

I started seeing Louise three months ago for Women Health because of my Pelvic Prolapse, Hyperactive Bladder and mild Incontinence and I have had since huge results. Louise used Tecar Therapy and Tesla on me and over only the first month the improvement was incredible! Louise also prescribed me a home plan which includes using a Ten’s machine for Tibial Nerve Stimulation, to help with my overactive bladder and the Pelvic Tone home kit, to improve my pelvic floor strength. Both have been easy to use, and it has been great that I can keep up with my plan from the comfort of my own home, or while on vacation! Before seeing Louise, I was recommended to have surgery for a grade 3 bladder prolapse. My prolapse has now improved from a grade 3 to a grade 2, which is wonderful news, as there are many risks involved with this surgery! Most importantly, my quality of life has improved greatly – previously I was waking up 2/3 times a night resulting in a terrible sleep pattern. My incontinence has significantly improved that I can now enjoy exercising and the gym again, without worrying about any leakages. As part of my treatment, I have been doing Pilates with Louise with lots of guidance on diaphragmatic and hypopressive breathing. This has given me the confidence in exercising again, and not being worried anymore to do core exercises. As a result, my diastasis (separation of abdominal muscles) has significantly reduced. Louise’s professional yet gentle and warm approach has always made me feel comfortable, so that I now look forward to my Women Health sessions rather than dreading them.. I highly recommend Louise and everyone at the ALO Clinic, an amazing team!

Lilly, a very happy customer
