Women’s Health Physiotherapy
Women’s health is a specific area of physiotherapy which addresses all gynaecological or obstetric symptoms. Whether you are pregnant, a new mum, recovering from gynaecological surgery, experiencing incontinence, prolapse, painful intercourse or pelvic girdle pain, women’s health physiotherapy can help to improve your health, fitness and well-being at any stage of life.
At Kerry Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Centre we recognise and truly understand the sensitivity around women’s health-related issues and therefore strive to create a professional yet relaxed environment in which you feel comfortable discussing your worries and concerns.
We treat women with a range of conditions and specialise in those of a complex nature. Whether your problem is due to injury, posture, dysfunction, surgery, pregnancy or menopause we endeavour to identify all contributing factors to the problem and design your treatment accordingly.
