During menopause and perimenopause, the levels of oestrogen in the body drop dramatically, which has a negative effect on our pelvic floor and surrounding muscles.
Our Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapists will assess your pelvic floor strength and endurance, as well as whether there is any tightness in the pelvic floor. Both weakness and tightness can contribute to a dysfunctional pelvic floor.
We will set out a clear treatment programme to resume pelvic floor strength and control, as well as assessing for any biomechanical dysfunction around the pelvis. Pelvic floor strength and endurance is essential to prevent continence and prolapse symptoms from developing.
Your physio can also help with joint and tendon pain associated with the menopause. Our joints and tendons are more susceptible to load and stress placed upon them during the menopause, so specialist input is often necessary to settle your symptoms and get you back to physical activity safely.
