Conditions we treat

PRE- & POST- GYNAECOLOGY SURGERY

Gynaecology surgery is common across the lifespan.

At Body & Birth Physiotherapy some of the conditions we see pre- and post- gynaecology surgery include: 

 

  • Diagnostic laparoscopies and subsequent removal of endometriosis for pelvic pain

  • Pelvic floor botox to assist in reduction in overactive pelvic floor muscles

  • Hysterectomy for prolapse, heavy menstrual bleeding, uterine fibroids or cancer

  • Bladder and bowel prolapse repair

  • Haemorrhoidectomy

We can help you prepare for your surgery to optimise your pelvic floor function beforehand, optimise your comfort in the early post-operative period and assist with your rehabilitation and achievement of long-term goals. Some of the points we cover in our pre- and post-operative surgery consults include:

 

  • Movement optimisation

  • Modification of physical activities

  • Bowel and bladder care

  • Postural advice

  • Wound support

  • Pelvic floor muscle assessment 

  • Breathing


If you have an upcoming surgery, the ideal time to see us is at least 6 weeks prior for a physical assessment, education and goal setting.
