Women’s health services on the Far South Coast have improved now that three physiotherapists with additional Women’s Health Physiotherapy training are working for Sapphire Coast Physiotherapy.

These physiotherapists are Monica Fraser, Tegan Butters and Kristy Nichols.

“Women’s Health Physiotherapy is a highly specialist area of physiotherapy. It requires specialized training beyond the basic physiotherapy course, and as a result there are very few women’s health physiotherapists in rural areas,” Tegan Butters explained.

“But we are lucky enough to now have three therapists trained in Women’s Health Physiotherapy practicing in the south east area at Sapphire Coast Physiotherapy.”

“Women’s Health Physiotherapy manages and treats conditions specific to women such as bladder weakness, bladder urgency, pelvic floor dysfunction, prolapse, and pre- and post-natal musculoskeletal pain.”

“We know up to two thirds of all women will experience some form of bladder dysfunction and one in three women who have had a child will wet themselves. We also know that 50% of women do not perform their pelvic floor exercises correctly, so there really is a huge demand for the services that Women’s Health Physiotherapists provide.”

“Unfortunately many women’s health problems still go untreated,” Tegan suggested. “This is because women do not know that there are services out there to help treat and manage their conditions like incontinence, frequently needing to go to the toilet, or experiencing pain when toileting.”

“We are very keen, therefore, for women to know that sympathetic, professional help is readily available, and that they don’t have to continue to live with these ‘women’s problems’.”

Women’s Health Physiotherapy services can be accessed at Sapphire Coast Physiotherapy’s Merimbula, Bega and Cooma practices. No doctor’s referral is necessary.
