Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus – the endometrium – grows outside the uterus. Endometriosis is one of the leading causes of pelvic pain affecting up to 10% of Australian women.
Due to the abnormal growth of this tissue, women can experience significant pain in the abdominal and pelvic area, along with back and hip pain, pain with urination or pain and bowel movements and painful sex.
Women’s health physiotherapy at Central Coast PhysioLates can specifically help you by completing a musculoskeletal assessment and we can identify non-optimal strategies of breath, posture, pelvic floor control and joint function. From this assessment we can help you have painless bladder and bowel habits, painless sexual intercourse, and less painful periods.
