Women’s Health Physiotherapy
Our physiotherapists that specialise in women’s health can assist with:
Pregnancy & Post Natal
-Treatment for back and pelvic pain
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
-DRAM (Diastasis of Rectus Abdominus Muscle)
-Mastitis and engorged ducts during breastfeeding
-Regaining fitness and tone after having a baby
-Pain with intercourse following delivery
-Exercise guidelines, prescription & classes during and after pregnancy
A pelvic floor physiotherapist undertakes further postgraduate study to become qualified to assess and treat conditions such as:
-Bladder leakage with coughing, sneezing, laughing
-Bladder leakage associated with urgency (can’t hold on long enough)
-Increased urinary frequency (needing to go to the toilet often)
-Difficulty controlling wind
-Leakage from the bowel
-Pre-operative and post-operative management following gynaecological surgery such as hysterectomy. Many people would be surprised to know how common the above conditions are, but they are NOT something that you should just accept and live with! Consulting a pelvic floor physiotherapist can teach you how to activate your pelvic floor muscles correctly and give you some valuable tools to help you live your life without worrying when you will be able to get to the toilet next. For an appointment for any women’s health condition, please see Kathryn or Alycia. Please see below for more information on our Preggy Fitness and Mums & Bubs classes.
The use of ultrasound (sound waves) is highly beneficial in the management of chronic low back pain and pelvic floor muscle re-eduation. Patients can visually see muscle/s that often through pain and other factors are not contracting in an appropriate manner. This in turn allows the development of an appropriate corrective exercise regime.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
Formerly known as RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) this often disabling condition now has a variety of new management approaches based on the latest cortical retraining techniques. Rowville Physiotherapy has been at the forefront of many of the latest techniques such as Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) for CRPS management.
Running for recreation and
competition is a wonderful way to keep fit and forms the basis of many
other sports such as football, soccer and basketball.

As the Rowville Clinical Pilates classes will be conducted by a physiotherapist it has the opportunity to have more of a clinical focus than just Fitness Pilates. This means the class can be tailored more specifically to your individual needs. It requires each new participant to our classes to undergo a pre-pilates class screen in the Rowville Physio. We also keep our class sizes small. Clinical Pilates exercise is suitable for everybody & anybody, ranging from teenagers to elderly, from dancers to footballers. Our class is open to everyone..
Our classes are split into three levels to accomodate for all degrees of pilates ability. We ask all people new to pilates at Rowville Physiotherapy to come in for a pre-pilates screen with a physiotherapist at our clinic. This price is charged at our follow up rate under the 505 code. The pre-pilates screen is essential for minimising the risk and maximising the benefits of clinical pilates.
