Women may seek care from pelvic health physiotherapists for many different conditions, ranging from incontinence to pelvic floor prolapse, polycystic ovarian syndrome, sexual health concerns, pregnancy- and menopause-related symptoms and many more. These conditions can significantly affect all aspects of a woman’s life, including her confidence, sense of self, mental health, participation in her job or social activities, sexual health and relationships. Women increasingly recognise that they should not stay silent about these conditions or let them affect their quality of life, so demand for pelvic health services is increasing. It is, therefore, important that physiotherapists have an understanding of women’s pelvic health physiotherapy.
This course aims to provide an overview of women’s pelvic health physiotherapy, focusing on conditions commonly seen in clinical practice.
