Women and Men’s Rehab

Women and Men’s Rehab

Women’s Health Physiotherapy provides support for women through all stages of life. This could be during pregnancy, post-natal, pre- and post-menopause, after gynaecological surgery. For men this could be pelvic floor straitening and post prostate surgery.  

Many common health problems are shared by both men and women. However, there are certain problems that affect men differently to women. Additionally, there are a variety of existing conditions that concern men only. These health problems include conditions that are associated with the post prostate surgery and pelvic floor straitening. Much of the problems men experience may be largely age related or they may be caused by trauma, disease, infection, nerve damage and / or obesity to name a but a few.

Physiotherapy with Impact Clinic will help you overcome the problems you have been experiencing, prevent future problems, reduce any embarrassment associated with Men’s health dysfunctions and help you to return to normal everyday living. Our team can help assess and treat following conditions:  


  • By using safe, gentle, and effective techniques our physiotherapist ease your pain and other fibromyalgia symptoms. There are 2 main types of physiotherapy treatments: 

    Passive Treatments for Fibromyalgia

    • Deep tissue massage:A physiotherapist therapist uses pressure to decrease muscle tension and muscle spasms.
    • Heat therapy: Heat deeply relaxes your muscles and gets blood to flow to the painful area faster.
    • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS): This treatment decreases fibromyalgia-related pain by blocking pain signals from reaching your spinal cord.
    • Ultrasound: Using sound waves, this treatment produces a gentle heat that enhances blood flow to deep tissues. Ultrasound can help decrease pain, inflammation, stiffness, and muscle spasms.


    Active Treatments for Fibromyalgia

    • Low-impact aerobic exercise: This type of exercise is gentle yet highly effective.
    • Strengthening and flexibility exercises:These exercises help build muscle strength and improve your range of motion.

Pre and post-natal care:

Pregnancy is an amazing and life changing experience, however it can take a toll on your body as it transforms to accommodate your growing baby. During pregnancy, your body undergoes dramatic change in a fairly short period of time. As the baby grows inside you, your hormones, posture and balance change. With time, as the baby gets heavier, the pressure inside your abdomen and down onto your pelvic floor muscles increases. This pressure means your pelvic floor muscles need to stay strong to support the weight of the baby from above and to prevent leakage of urine. The muscles, joints and ligaments undergo many changes which affect the whole body, and it is common to experience a variety of musculoskeletal symptoms.


As every pregnancy is different, our experienced physiotherapists will design a specific program to suit your needs. Based on your assessment, your treatment may include assessment and strengthening of the pelvic floor and core muscles, joint mobilisations, massage, an exercise program to maintain flexibility and strength, education and advice.


Post pregnancy (vaginal or caesarean), there will be a degree of weakening of your pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor muscles are vital for continence, pelvic stability and sexual function and they are adversely affected through pregnancy and delivery. To prevent long term problems, it is essential to start pelvic floor exercises as soon as possible. Postnatally you will find yourself holding your baby in sustained positions and doing lots of lifting, which can lead to many aches and pains.


Treatment may include an individualised pelvic floor program, abdominal and core strengthening, treatment of any musculoskeletal issues found, scar tissue management and advice on return to sport, nutrition, sleep, posture and ergonomics.

Pelvic floor Strengthening

  • Pelvic floor muscles become weak, too tight or painful for many reasons. This is not all due to ageing. Pelvic floor problems often start with pregnancy and childbirth and they are also common in young athletes. Men, women and children of all ages need a healthy pelvic floor. Pelvic health or Women’s health physiotherapy has proven to be effective in treating and preventing many conditions.


    Pelvic floor rehabilitation or re-education is not only about pelvic floor exercises. After a thorough assessment, a treatment plan will target your current problem and underlying causes. Treatment modalities vary according to your needs and may include relaxation and strengthening pelvic floor exercises, manual therapy, biofeedback, electrotherapy, education and advice.

Post prostate – Men’s Health

After your prostate surgery, you should begin physiotherapy during your hospital stay which will aim to get you out of bed as soon as possible and mobilising to avoid chest infections, blood clots and consequently a longer hospital stay. Once you have been discharged, Impact will provide you with a personal rehabilitation programme which main goals focus on:

  • Minimising pain
  • Reducing urinary problems and incontinence
  • Reducing bowel problems
  • Improving muscle strength and endurance
  • Improving cardiovascular fitness
  • Re-establishing function and independence

After receiving a thorough assessment, Impact will highlight the main problems you will be experiencing after your prostatectomy surgery and set rehabilitation goals that are personal to you. Impact will provide you with a variety of treatment methods and activities that aim to correct these problems.


Patients with PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disease) or PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) often find it’s much harder to lose weight than it is for those without PCOS—and much easier to gain weight unintentionally. If you have PCOS and are trying to lose weight, you may feel frustrated that you’re doing everything “right” while the scale isn’t budging.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disorder that affects hormones. Hormones are responsible for a lot of bodily processes that impact weight—including when we feel hungry, how our bodies use food for energy, our stress levels, and more. To help on your journey to good health, Dr. Naziya recommends following these steps for success.

  • Be patient with your progress
  • Exercise regularly
  • Balance your diet
  • Don’t over-restrict calories or over-exercise
  • Consider medication
  • Talk to a Doctor for help
  • PCOS is a complex condition that affects everyone a little differently. Dr. Naziya urges you to consult, if you have PCOS and you’re struggling with weight. As a Physiotherapist, Dr. Naziya aims to help each patient meet their individual health goals—including patients with PCOS who need personalized care.
