Sports Women and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Sports Women and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

With the Lionesses amazing achievement in the Euros and the huge gap between male and female sport having the spotlight shone on it once again, not just at the elite level but also the participation of women in day to day fitness.

There are many different aspects in play that reduce women’s participation in sport and general exercise.

One major reason seen in a physiotherapy setting is pelvic floor dysfunction, this can cause issues such as urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, coccydynia (coccyx pain) or pelvic pain.  

Pelvic floor dysfunction doesn’t just affect women who have had children.  There are many women who have not been pregnant who may have pain or issues with their bladder, which can be detrimental to participation in sport and exercise.

Seeing a pelvic floor physiotherapist may help improve your symptoms, and if there is a particular sport or activity you are looking to do, can advise how to do this activity while managing your symptoms.

Tara Lawson is the Women’s Health Physiotherapist at the clinic.
