The Birmingham Women’s Hospital physiotherapy outpatient team treats a variety of conditions affecting women:
- chronic pelvic pain
- urinary incontinence
- birth-related perineal trauma
- antenatal and postnatal musculoskeletal issues
- breast cancer and oncology rehabilitation
The team is comprised of experienced senior physiotherapists who have all undertaken specialist post-graduate training. We work closely with consultants and are experienced in managing complex problems.
What we do?
We run outpatient clinics for women who have symptoms of urinary and bowel incontinence and prolapse.
We hold group sessions to provide advice and exercise for women who develop low back and pelvic girdle pain during pregnancy.
Our physiotherapists do not see inpatients. You can find out more about physiotherapy for gynaecology surgery and pregnancy in the following leaflets which are produced by the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women’s Health.
