What can I expect during a pelvic floor assessment?
Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy does not always require a physical examination. To commence Lara will have a conversation with you regarding why you have come, symptoms you may be experiencing and your health history. From this an assessment will be chosen if necessary.
Your assessment may include: a bladder diary or physical and/or internal examination. You will be explained the appropriate assessment prior to your treatment and always asked for your consent prior to commencing. If you have any questions you are always encouraged to ask these before/during/after a session.
If an area amenable to physiotherapy is assessed, Lara will then proceed to offer treatment plans. This may include: pelvic floor muscle strengthening, lifestyle modification, product advice or many other treatment options.
If you have any other questions/concerns about pelvic floor physiotherapy, please call the clinic to discuss with Lara or refer to our Women’s Health page for more information.
How does Physiotherapy treat inflammatory conditions of the lactating breast?
Lactation is a natural but not always easy part of the birthing experience. Inflammation in the breast can be caused by many different factors. Mastitis is a condition causing pain, heat, blocked ducts, redness, engorgement, malaise and fever and can progress to require hospitalisation if not treated in a timely fashion.
Antibiotics are used if the mastitis is infectious, however they do not treat blockages if present and do not prevent future episodes. Mastitis is rarely infectious in the first 6weeks antenatally, therefore antibiotics are also not effective in these early weeks.
Physiotherapy is a non-invasive method of mastitis treatment. Lara is specially trained in this area and uses a combination of lymphatic drainage, therapeutic ultrasound, compression, taping, and breast feeding education/mastitis prevention + self-treatment.
All physiotherapy modalities are safe adjuncts if you are on antibiotics, with therapeutic ultrasound working to break down bacterial cell membranes to improve antibiotic effectiveness. Physiotherapy can also be used at the first onset of symptoms to prevent a full, blown mastitic episode from occurring.
If you have any concerns regarding mastitis, blocked ducts, engorgement etc. please feel free to call to discuss or book in to see Lara today.
At Entire Physio we take mastitis very seriously and will do anything we can to get you in the same day you call.
Generally women require somewhere from 1-3 sessions to fully resolve symptoms.
