Women and mothers are affected by a number of different health issues particular to them, and their needs and treatment are therefore quite different to those of men. Many women don’t realise that their issues aren’t unique to them and that several other women suffer from the same conditions. Studies have shown that there is also a tendency for women’s pain to be taken less seriously. As a result, they feel embarrassed to talk about their issues and don’t seek treatment that could easily solve their symptoms.
At Mummy’s Physio, we aim to raise awareness about women’s health issues, educate women about these issues and encourage them to seek professional advice and treatment, in order to improve their overall wellbeing and quality of life. There is no need to suffer in silence when you can talk to a specialist and receive effective treatment for your ailment.
But what does the term “Women’s Health” cover? Below you can find a non-exhaustive list of conditions that are included under this umbrella term.
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Fluid retention (oedema)
- Lymphoedema or cording after breast cancer
- Back pain or join pain during pregnancy
- Abdominal diastasis after pregnancy
- Pelvic Girdle Pain
- Ante and post natal care
These conditions can affect women of any age and physical condition. So you shouldn’t feel embarrassed if you, for example, experience symptoms of incontinence when you’re doing sports in your 20’s, it isn’t a condition that only affects older women. The good news is that you can receive non-invasive treatment for it, in order to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and minimise the symptoms. Similarly, if you are pregnant or have recently given birth, the unpleasant physical consequences aren’t a necessary evil you have to put up with. Women’s physiotherapy and osteopathy can help alleviate pain and oedema, as well as help you rehabilitate after pregnancy.
Our mission as a physiotherapy practice dedicated to women is to enable every woman in London to lead a healthier and happier life. Every mother should have a pleasant pregnancy and the time to recover and strengthen again after giving birth. Every woman who has been through the ordeal of breast cancer should be as pain free as possible after the end of her treatment. And every woman should be able to enjoy her daily activities without having to conceal pain or feel embarrassed and uncomfortable because of a common issue.
There is a number of different women’s health treatments available to you, so don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
