Women's Health Physiotherapy
Women's Health Surrey Hills
Any issues you may have with your pelvic area may cause you distress, and this is completely understandable. From pelvic floor weakness to endometriosis pain, and from incontinence to prolapse, many of the issues we face as women can have a significant impact on your quality of life.
At Eastside Physio + Co our Women's and Pelvic Health service ensures the best possible management of the bladder, bowel, and reproductive organ conditions. Our highly qualified team has a strong desire to help women rediscover the freedom of living without bladder and bowel issues, because we love seeing you at your best.
Our Women's Health Treatment Process
1. History & Diagnosis
We talk with you about your history with any pelvic concerns to establish the cause of your condition.
In some cases, people have sought treatment for the same issue previously but found it didn’t help. This may be because the treatment given was not appropriate for their specific needs.
2. Immediate Relief
We aim to relieve discomfort through hands on therapy, personalised exercises, any training that may be beneficial for your condition.
We set the grounds for ongoing condition management to give you the best chance of a quick and safe recovery.
3. Recovery Program
The treatment and exercises we prescribe are specific to your condition and your individual needs.
We always aim to educate you about your condition and the self-help strategies you can use in the future. The result is lasting change and improved quality of life.

What Techniques Do Our Women's Health Team Use?
At Eastside Physio we utilise the treatments that we believe may offer you the most benefit while also taking your concerns into consideration. Some people may be less comfortable with a specific technique than others, and that’s okay— this is a safe space and you always have the freedom to discuss alternative options at any time.
We aim to help you recover as quickly and as safely as possible by tailoring a treatment plan specifically to you. Techniques we may use include:
Personalised exercises are part of a personalised program you can complete at home. We give you all the information you need to perform these exercises in your own time and space.
Pelvic Floor Training
Whether your pelvic floor is weak or overactive, neither is optimal for your pelvic health. Pelvic floor training may assist at both ends of the spectrum and aims to either strengthen or release the muscles in this area to decrease pain and discomfort.
Bladder issues can affect people at any age, though are most commonly associated with people who have recently given birth. Bladder training aims to help you decrease the frequency that you need to urinate, increase the amount of urine you pass, and help with bladder incontinence issues.
Products and Devices
Some women's health conditions require assistive products or devices such as pessaries, creams and lubricants. If any of these are appropriate for your recovery your physio will discuss your options and help find the best solution.
As well as physical issues, there may be lifestyle factors that are impacting on your pelvic pain and/or discomfort. With a wealth of knowledge on how lifestyle can come into play, we give educated advice on how to minimise its impact.
Stress can affect some people differently than others and it is known that stress and anxiety may contribute to pain and discomfort.
Relaxation training aims to reduce this stress and the impact it may have on the pelvic region.
