How is The Fix Program's Women's Health Physiotherapy different?
Our women's health physiotherapists are passionate about providing the best possible
care for our women. Caring, sensitive and thorough assessment and management for
each woman is our focus.
We understand every woman's physiotherapy needs are different.
Our women's health assessments always involve an internal vaginal examination. This,
along with extensive questioning about your pelvic floor function and habits allow
for the best diagnosis and then treatment. The internal examination will also allow
for the physiotherapist to properly assess any weakness, spasm or change to your
pelvic floor muscles and to assess for any degree of vaginal prolapse of your pelvic
organs. All of this cannot be achieved externally.
We work closely with your current physiotherapist, referring doctor or gynaecologist
to achieve the best outcome for you.
What should I expect?
You do not need a referral to see our women's health physiotherapists, but you may
be referred by your GP or gynaecologist. After speaking with you over the phone
about your pelvic floor problem, we will book you an hour long assessment. This
will involve taking a very detailed history about your pelvic floor habits, from
bladder and bowel control, to sex, to lower back and pelvic pain. The internal vaginal
examination will follow and a management plan decided together with you.
How much will I pay for women's health pelvic floor physiotherapy services at The Fix Program?
All of our physiotherapy sessions attract a rebate with most private health fund
providers nationally. We claim on the spot for you with the HICAPS system, meaning
no further chasing up rebates by you with your fund providers. All you need to do
is pay the gap.
