Our women’s health physiotherapists, Ashley Osie and Jessica Findlay, have specialised skills in assessment and treatment of pelvic floor muscle function and dysfunction, as well as other musculoskeletal issues associated with pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Ash and Jess are sensitive and caring and thorough in their history taking. Pelvic floor assessment almost always involves an internal vaginal examination to measure the strength, coordination and/or presence of spasm of pelvic floor muscles, as well as the position of pelvic organs. After being assessed, a management plan will be devised based on the findings and treatment goals.
A referral is not required for women’s health physiotherapy consults, but it may be beneficial for the physiotherapist to liaise with your GP and/or gynaecologist after your first consult.
