Menopause Physio

The Menopause is a natural process that marks the end of a woman’s menstruation.

Menopausal Physiotherapy can help with these hormonal and lifestyle challenges.

There are many changes that the menopause can bring to both your physical and mental well being.

The menopause usually happens between the ages of 45 and 55 – which means most women can expect some 30 years of post-menopausal life. For some this is even longer as early menopause occurs in approx 5% of women before age 40.

The symptoms that one woman can experience can be very different to another and it is important to try and not make comparisons.

Possible symptoms include:

  • physical aches and pains
  • reduction in bone density
  • strength and balance
  • weight gain
  • hot flushes
  • insomnia and depressed mood
  • pelvic floor muscle weakness
  • urinary and faecal incontinence
  • pelvic organ prolapse
  • painful intercourse

How can a physiotherapist help with my menopause symptoms?

A women’s health physio can help the above symptoms though advice and education and how you can make small changes in your current routine that can make all the difference. They can help create a safe and progressive exercise programme to help you build and keep up your strength. If being active is not something you have done before then starting this journey with a Physiotherapist is a very safe place to start.

What is osteoporosis and how can it be prevented and treated?

Osteoporosis is a health condition that weakens bones, making them more fragile and more likely to break. It can develop over years and is often not diagnosed until someone develops a fracture. It is not usually painful until a bone is broken. 

Losing bone is a normal part of ageing but some people loose bone quicker than others. 

Women can rapidly lose bone is the first few years of the menopause. This makes women at a higher risk of osteoporosis to men. Other causes can be taking steroids for over 3 months, inflammatory conditions, hormone related conditions, family history, history of an eating disorder, low BMI, heavy drinking/ smoking and not exercising regularly. 

To try to prevent or reduce your risk of osteoporosis you wand to take regular exercise, eat healthily including risk foods in vitamin D and calcium and taking lifestyle changes such as giving up smoking or lowering your alcohol consumption. 

If you are diagnosed with osteoporosis either by a bone density scan or because you have broken a bone there are a number of different medicines you can take including bisphosphonates, biological medicines, calcium and vitamin D supplements, parathyroid hormones, selective oestrogen receptor modulators and HRT.
