Women's Health 

As a conservative estimate there are around 14 million people in the UK today with some form of bladder problem. Shockingly 1 in 3 women experience Women’s Health problems during their lifetime. However many tolerate these problems, often for years, either too embarrassed to seek help or unaware that there are treatments available. Children can suffer with bladder and bowel related problems too. 
 
 
We can help you. It often just takes some specialist treatment and training to cure the problem, and that is what we can offer with years of experience and specialist training. Women's Health Physiotherapy provides confidential assessments and Specialist Treatment modalities.
