Wellness:Women’s Health through Physiotherapy

Women Wellness

Women’s wellness is a holistic concept that encompasses physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. It acknowledges the unique challenges and strengths that women experience throughout their lives. Achieving and maintaining wellness is not just about treating illness; it’s about embracing self-care, self-love, and empowerment.  

Why is women’s wellness important?

Women are more prone to ovarian cancer, breast cancer, heart diseases, depression, and anxiety, ranking the topmost in wellness and health issues for women. Women’s health issues mentioned above are certain severe conditions that can considerably affect their quality of health and well-being. Diseases like ovarian and breast cancer are treatable at their early stages. Women should see a doctor if they encounter irregular bleedings, lumps in the breast, and severe abdominal pain. 

What are the signs of poor women’s health?

  • Constant sadness
  • Irregular sleeping schedule
  • Bleeding after menopause
  • More than usual, hair lose
  • Mood swings

Urinary Continence

Urinary incontinence is a common condition that can significantly affect women’s wellness and quality of life. It’s important to recognize the symptoms of urinary incontinence and understand how they can impact overall well-being.


  • Involuntary Urine Leakage: The most noticeable symptom of urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine. This can range from occasional dribbling to a complete loss of bladder control.
  • Frequent Urination: Women with urinary incontinence may experience frequent and urgent urges to urinate. This can disrupt daily routines, sleep patterns, and overall comfort.
  • Pelvic Pain or Discomfort: Some women with urinary incontinence may experience pelvic pain or discomfort. This can lead to decreased physical activity and discomfort during sexual intercourse, affecting emotional and physical well-being.

Benefits of Physiotherapy in Pelvic Floor Muscle Strengthening

  • Improved Continence: One of the primary benefits of pelvic floor muscle strengthening is improved bladder and bowel control. Strengthening these muscles can help prevent or alleviate urinary incontinence and faecal incontinence, particularly in cases of stress incontinence and urge incontinence.
  • Enhanced Support for Organs: The pelvic floor muscles support and hold up the bladder, uterus, and rectum. Strengthening these muscles can help prevent or reduce pelvic organ prolapse, a condition in which these organs descend into the vaginal or rectal area.
  • Reduced Risk of Surgery: For some individuals, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles may negate the need for surgery to address pelvic floor issues. In cases of mild to moderate pelvic organ prolapse or stress incontinence, physiotherapy can provide significant improvement.

Types of exercises for pelvic muscle strengthening

  • Kegel Exercises
  • Bridge Exercises
  • Squats
  • Belly Breathing
  • Wall Sit


Women’s wellness is a multifaceted concept that encompasses physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. Taking a holistic approach to wellness is essential for leading a fulfilling life. By prioritizing nutrition, exercise, mental health, emotional well-being, and social connections, women can empower themselves to live healthier, happier lives. Remember that self-care is not selfish; it’s a necessary investment in your overall well-being. Start today and take small steps towards a more balanced and vibrant life.
