Looking for a Women's Health Physiotherapist in Canberra?

Women’s health physiotherapy refers to conditions that are particular to women and can present at any point, often in relation to pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. There are many conditions related to women’s health and at Back In Strength, our women’s health physiotherapists support and guide women through these issues using a variety of treatments.

One of the main areas of women’s health are the changes associated with pregnancy and can be broken into two areas, Antenatal and Postnatal physiotherapy. Every mother, child and pregnancy are unique, which is why it’s important to work alongside a passionate and experienced women’s health physiotherapist.

Our women’s health physiotherapists are compassionate, discreet and welcoming, offering safe and private consultations. During the consultation you may be asked detailed questions about your previous medical history, bladder and bowel function, and obstetric history. Our women’s health physiotherapists will use a variety of treatment techniques suited to your individual situation.

Sometimes gentle mobilisation of the relevant joints and muscles, strapping and stretches can make the world of difference. Our Pilates classes help consolidate strength and stability, and ensure your posture remains optimal during pregnancy.
