Description

I am a specialist womens health physiotherpist

 

Pregnancy-related musculoskeletal problems (antenatal and postnatal):

  • pelvic girdle pain (previously known as symphysis pubis dysfunction or SPD)
  • back pain and/or sciatica
  • separation of the tummy muscles (rectus diastasis)
  • carpal tunnel syndrome

Gynaecological problems, including incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and pelvic pain symptoms:

  • frequency passing urine – going to the toilet to pass urine more than 6-8 times a day 
  • urgency, urge incontinence and overactive bladder – a sudden compelling urge to pass urine, and maybe leaking on the way to the toilet
  • stress urinary incontinence – caused by a rise in intra-abdominal pressure (eg coughing, sneezing, shouting,  laughing, lifting,  bending or standing up from sitting)
  • faecal urgency and/or incontinence – a sudden strong urge to open their bowels, and/or not making it to the toilet and losing stool
  • difficulty controlling wind
  • pelvic organ prolapse (bladder, bowel or uterus) – when the bladder, womb or bowel bulges into the vaginal walls
  • rehab after gynaecological surgery, including hysterectomy
  • sexual dysfunction (including pain on sexual intercourse and vulval pain)

These conditions may have a number of causes but are usually associated with weak pelvic floor muscles (see The pelvic floor).
