Physiotherapy For Women in Sydney

Women’s health physiotherapy is an area of physiotherapy, specifically focused on the unique health conditions faced by women over the different stages of life, such as menstruation, puberty, pregnancy, and menopause.

What’s Involved in Women’s Health Physiotherapy

Initial assessment 

Your women’s health physio will start by conducting a thorough physical assessment of your pelvis and the rest of your body. We may also ask you to share any symptoms or discomfort that have been affecting you. 

Professional diagnosis

Once the assessment has been completed, your physio will work to identify the source of your pain or discomfort and proceed to diagnosis the relevant conditions. We will provide you with a clear explanation of the condition, as well as the treatment options available to help manage it. 

Customised treatment plan

Based on your condition, we  will create a treatment plan that is customised to your needs. Physio womens health treatments can range from pelvic floor or muscle exercises, physical therapy, pain management techniques, as well as home management strategies to help provide ongoing treatment. 


Frequently Asked Questions 




Can I attend a womens health physio session if I am pregnant?

Yes - a core focus of physio for women’s health focuses on prenatal and postnatal health.


In fact, it is often recommended for pregnant women to address and manage common pregnancy-related issues such as back pain, pelvic girdle pain, and pelvic floor dysfunction. 


Our physiotherapists for women's health have the specialised expertise to provide safe and effective treatments tailored to the unique needs of pregnancy. We can offer exercises, manual therapy, and advice on posture and body mechanics to help alleviate discomfort, prepare for childbirth, and promote overall well-being during pregnancy.

Is womens health physiotherapy covered under Medicare?

In Australia, Medicare provides limited coverage for physiotherapy under the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan, which requires a referral from a general practitioner. Individuals can receive up to five allied health services per year under this plan, including some physiotherapy services. 


Check with your local healthcare provider and Medicare guidelines to understand the specific coverage details and whether a referral or specific conditions apply.

Can you help me to strengthen my pelvic floor?

Absolutely. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that forms a structure for key organs, like the bladder, bowels, and uterus. A strong pelvic floor is particularly important for women as it can prevent incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse. 


The pelvic floor can become weakened during pregnancy, childbirth, with age, weight gain, from chronic illness, lifting heavy objects, and menopause. You can strengthen your pelvic floor muscles by exercising the muscles themselves through gentle and targeted movements. Our team of physiotherapists can work with you to strengthen your pelvic floor, ensuring you’re left feeling more confident and comfortable in your body.
