Endometriosis

Physiotherapy probably isn’t the first thing you think of when seeking help for endometriosis, however, even though physiotherapy cannot change the condition, it can offer so much to help the pain associated with it.

Endometriosis is where endometrial tissue is located outside the uterus which thickens and breaks down and bleeds each month. This blood cannot exit the body and becomes trapped. Cysts can form plus scar tissue and adhesions causing irritation to the surrounding tissues and hence pain. It is not just the body that needs help with Endometriosis but also the mind which is why Pelvic Health Physiotherapy addresses the huge connection between mind and body with a holistic approach with both education and hands on treatment.
