Menopause Physio


The Menopause is a natural process that marks the end of a woman’s menstruation.

Menopausal Physiotherapy can help with these hormonal and lifestyle challenges.

There are many changes that the menopause can bring to both your physical and mental well being.

The menopause usually happens between the ages of 45 and 55 – which means most women can expect some 30 years of post-menopausal life. For some this is even longer as early menopause occurs in approx 5% of women before age 40.

The symptoms that one woman can experience can be very different to another and it is important to try and not make comparisons.

Possible symptoms include:

  • physical aches and pains
  • reduction in bone density
  • strength and balance
  • weight gain
  • hot flushes
  • insomnia and depressed mood
  • pelvic floor muscle weakness
  • urinary and faecal incontinence
  • pelvic organ prolapse
  • painful intercourse

How can a physiotherapist help with my menopause symptoms?

A women’s health physio can help the above symptoms though advice and education and how you can make small changes in your current routine that can make all the difference. They can help create a safe and progressive exercise programme to help you build and keep up your strength. If being active is not something you have done before then starting this journey with a Physiotherapist is a very safe place to start.
