Expert Women’s Health Services Helping You Live Life To Its Fullest

Womens Health Physio Cairns

Our women’s health and continence physiotherapists will give you caring, confidential and high quality management in the areas of women’s continence, pregnancy and pelvic floor disorders. Women’s Health physiotherapy can help to manage a range of conditions including:

  • Stress Incontinence – leakage of urine when you run, laugh, cough or sneeze
  • Urge incontinence – leakage when you have a strong and sudden urge to go to the toilet, but don’t make it in time
  • Bowel dysfunction – problems with constipation or control of wind or faeces.
  • Prolapse of pelvic organs – including bladder, bowel or uterus
  • Pain in the pelvic, abdominal or vulva region
  • Pain with sexual intercourse
  • Pre/Post surgery – hysterectomy, anterior/posterior wall repair, caesarean delivery
  • Antenatal conditions – pelvic girdle and low back pain, carpel tunnel syndrome
  • Postnatal conditions – pelvic floor weakness, neck, back or perineal pain, 6 week check up
  • Pelvic floor and abdominal muscle weakness – Including poor awareness of how to exercise these muscles correctly or effectively.

Physiotherapy for these conditions includes a confidential and private assessment of the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles, bladder and bowel function. Your physiotherapist will get a good understanding of various factors that affect your lifestyle and then design a treatment program to suit your specific condition and lifestyle.

Contact Proactive Physiotherapy today and organise your confidential appointment with one of our physiotherapists to get you back to doing the things you love.

COVID 19 & Telehealth Notice

At Proactive Physiotherapy we recognise that people still injure themselves, and are in pain, so we are still open for face-to-face consultations for the time being, In the interests of everybody's health we are trying to minimise these face to face treatments, so if your condition can be helped without face to face treatment we will offer you telehealth or phone consults.

For your safety, we have reduced physiotherapists hours to allow us to have only two physiotherapists and one receptionist in the clinic at any one time. We use screening questionnaires for everyone attending the clinic and have strict sanitising procedures in place.

For anyone that doesn't want to come into the clinic, our telehealth service, “Physio By Video” is up and running. Anybody who is interested in this service should contact us by email: physio@proactivephysio.com.au, or by phone on 40536222 and a physiotherapist can discuss how this works.

Reception will be attended between 830am and 5pm and Monday to Thursday and 830am to midday on Friday, or you can leave us a voice message at other times.

Thank you for your understanding. We wish you all safety and good health in the coming days and weeks.

Julie Faulks and the entire Proactive Physio team.
