We have six brand new women’s health courses available now on Physioplus.
It is estimated that one in three women live with some sort of pelvic health concern that significantly impacts their physical function, psychosocial well being, and overall quality of life. These conditions are wide and varied and may be further divided into subcategories of gynaecology, urology, obstetrics, pain science, orthopaedics, and more. Because pelvic health physiotherapists live at the junction of these subcategories, they are integral to helping women restore their pelvic health and function.
By taking part in our exciting new Women’s Health Programme you will understand the current landscape of women’s health and be challenged to view pelvic health through a different lens. You will learn the anatomy and physiology of the pelvic floor, as well as the most common conditions faced by women. A walk-through of physiotherapy assessment and treatment for pelvic health conditions will be provided. Lastly, there will be an important discussion about the impact of childbirth on the pelvic floor and factors to consider when working with women during the postpartum period and beyond.
