PHYSIOTHERAPY – WOMEN’S & MEN’S HEALTH.
We have a Physiotherapist at our Chichester clinic trained specifically to deal with both women’s and men’s health. Funmi Odofin is a specialist in this field with over 20 years experience and she is very happy to discuss any concerns you may have. Examples of conditions and treatment offered include:
• Bladder & bowel incontinence
• Bladder & bowel problems in children
• Biofeedback for constipation and difficulty emptying the bowels
• Pelvic organ prolapse
• Female pelvic pain
• Pelvic floor rehabilitation before & after gynaecological surgery
• Pelvic floor rehabilitation following prostate surgery
• Male urinary and bowel incontinence
• Postnatal abdominal & pelvic floor rehabilitation
• Comprehensive postnatal check-up
Due to the delicate nature of this subject there is often a lack of information available, leading many to believe that little can be done to help such concerns. This is absolutely not the case. Funmi has many years of experience in this area and between her and yourself, any concerns you may have can be discussed and a treatment plan put in place so that you may work together to improve your symptoms and make positive changes.
