What is it?
#AskthePhysio aims to highlight issues or conditions that the public DID NOT know could be treated with physiotherapy.
Our focus in March is on Women’s and Men’s Health and the role of pelvic physiotherapists. Our message is that physios are experts in supporting and helping with conditions such as bladder issues, pelvic pain, incontinence, erectile dysfunction, pregnancy pain and painful sex.
Why Women's and Men's Health?
Discussions around Women’s Health in the media has increased over the last 18 months. Conversations around areas such as menopause has brought women’s health issues into the spotlight and higher in the public consciousness. This has increased awareness of issues effecting women and men such as incontinence. This campaign is designed to educate the public and encourage them to see a physiotherapist as part of their journey.
- Urine incontinence, or the involuntary leakage of urine, is a common symptom that affects 1 in 4 women. Prevalence of this problem increases with age, as up to 75 percent of women above age 65 report urine leakage*
- 1 in 10 women in Ireland have endometriosis, an inflammatory condition which occurs when cells similar to those found in the lining of the uterus are found external to the uterus. Women with endometriosis also report bloating, thigh pain, nausea, fatigue, heavy periods and IBS symptoms
- Worldwide, the rates of chronic pelvic pain for women of childbearing age range from 14% to 32%. Between 13% and 32% of these women have pain that is severe enough to cause them to miss work.*
Physiotherapy can help with factors involved in pelvic pain including low back and hip pain, bladder pain or bladder urgency/leakage, painful sex (dyspareunia), IBS and pain science education. We want increase the publics awareness of this.
