Women's Health Physiotherapy

At Lively, we have therapists trained specifically in Women’s Health Physiotherapy.

Sylvia and Christina are both senior Physiotherapists, and have had extensive training in assessing, treating and managing a wide range of women’s health pathology including:
  • Pelvic organ prolapse and pessary fitting
  • Pelvic floor assessment and training
  • Assessment and treatment of pregnancy related pain
  • Postnatal check, including core and pelvic floor exercise programs
  • Muscle strains, pelvic girdle symptoms and other musculoskeletal injuries
  • Pregnancy exercise programs
  • Pain with intercourse (dyspareunia) and other pain disorders
  • Stress and urge urinary incontinence
  • Pubic symphysis pain (SPD)
  • Rectus abdominis diastasis (DRA) (stomach muscle separation)

During your session you can expect a thorough assessment of the whole body and pelvic organs/pelvic floor. You will be provided with education on our findings, a strategy and plan on your diagnosis, and a specific exercise prescription where appropriate. You will also have the option for an assessment of the core and pelvic floor muscles using our real-time ultrasound.

Post-natal Check

After 6 weeks, we provide a post-natal check that goes for 60minutes.

In that session your:

  • Stomach muscles will be assessed for any abdominal separation (Diastasis Rectus Abdominis)
  • Pelvic organs will be assessed for any prolapse
  • Pelvic Floor muscles will be assessed
  • Whole body alignment will be assessed
  • Findings from the above will then be explained and management will then be discussed
