Menopause Assessment

Amanda offers a holistic and individualised physiotherapy approach to support women through the perimenopause and menopause.

The Menopause Assessment is a comprehensive pelvic health assessment for any woman who is perimenopausal or postmenopausal. Whether you are experiencing symptoms or just thinking about the future and want to do what you can to prevent symptoms, then you can benefit from this specialist one hour session.

All too often, niggling problems, such as urgency to pee, leakage of urine, feelings of a prolapse, constipation or painful sex are just put down to something to put up with as you get older. This is absolutely not the case. These symptoms are common, but not normal, and bladder and bowel problems can be helped and sex should not be painful.

The session will include a detailed discussion of your medical history, your bladder, bowel, and sexual function along with any menopause symptoms you are experiencing. It will also involve an internal assessment to determine how well your pelvic floor muscles are functioning, allowing an accurate and personalised exercise programme to be prescribed for you.

You will leave the session with a better understanding of your own pelvic floor and how you can improve it to support you through the rest of your life, along with specific advice for any problems you may be experiencing. This assessment can be booked as a one-off assessment, however follow up sessions are available for those who require extra support to help them reach their goals.
