Women’s health

It is very common to experience dysfunction in the muscles surrounding the pelvis and spine. These muscles work together to control continence, maintain a support system to your internal organs and ensure a healthy functional spine. Our specialist physiotherapists can use advanced techniques to assess the muscles within the body and diagnose imbalances that lead to pelvic issues. These issues can include, pain in and around the pelvis, issue with continence, a feeling of heaviness in the pelvis which can indicate organ prolapse and sexual dysfunction.

Pregnancy

It is very common for women to experience musculoskeletal problems as a result of pregnancy. The mother’s body goes through many changes, which can lead to pelvic muscular changes, resulting in low back and hip pain. The pelvic floor muscles often become dysfunctional, leading to stress incontinence. The situation does not always get better when your bundle of joy is born, as nursing a baby will often result in upper back and neck pain.

Real time Ultrasound

In Physiofocus we have access to a real time ultrasound machine, which we use to examine the pelvic muscles in order to assess how well they are functioning. This combined with other assessment tools, allows us to do in depth assesment, making us one of only a few clinics in Singapore able to specialise in this area.
