Healthy Ageing

During or after menopause, many women may notice increased difficulty in controlling the bladder or bowel, and may notice symptoms such as urinary frequency (constantly needing to go to the toilet), or urgency (not being able to hold it).

Menopause can cause the muscles in your pelvic floor to weaken, which can contribute to these pelvic floor problems such as

  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Leaking from bladder and bowels
  • Frequent urination
  • Pain with sexual intercourse

A consultation with a women’s health physio will help identify the cause of your symptoms, and give you a roadmap to recovery. We are also specifically trained in managing other ageing related conditions and can help with:

  • Exercise for osteopenia and osteoporosis
  • Balance and strength training
