The role of physiotherapists in obstetrics and gynecology is pivotal. Obstetric or gynecological-related pain is not always something that you must live with. While these problems can be serious and should be checked out by a physician, many women have found relief by following a program of physical therapy. Our physical therapists can help pregnant women and new mothers find relief from back pain, muscle or joint aches, post-Cesarean section pain, and more. We also offer programs for uncontrolled loss of urine when coughing or sneezing, pelvic pain during intercourse, urination from unknown causes, and other conditions.

Antenatal physiotherapy

Physiotherapy during pregnancy, or antenatal physiotherapy, can assist with pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain and lower back pain. Our physiotherapists can also provide expert advice on incontinence and pelvic floor.

Postnatal physiotherapy

Postnatal women are prone to pelvic floor issues and incontinence in later life. When you return to Greenslopes Obstetrics and Gynaecology for your six-week postnatal review with your doctor, we recommend a postnatal physiotherapy review also takes place at that time to check your pelvic floor and recovery from the delivery. Our physiotherapists also offer specialised treatment for bladder and bowel issues, pain, scarring and rectus diastasis.
