Women’s Health Physiotherapy (also referred to as pelvic health or pelvic floor physiotherapy as men are also affected with pelvic concerns!) is the area of physiotherapy that deals with conditions relating to the bladder, bowel, pelvic floor, and pelvis, as well as pregnancy-related conditions including mastitis and lower back pain.

Our Physiotherapists are trained in pelvic floor assessment and treatment, and work closely with local specialists, surgeons, GPs and other health professionals to ensure that the treatment you are being provided is of the highest level and supported by current evidence.

Redcliffe Sports & Spinal is NDIS registered and accepts Medicare rebates and HICAPS health fund claims. EFTPOS and credit card facilities are also available for payment. 

Some of the areas and conditions that our Women’s Health Physiotherapists can assess and treat include:

  • Pregnancy & Postnatal Pelvic Girdle or Coccyx Pain
  • Pregnancy & Postnatal Lower or Mid Back Pain
  • Rectus Abdominis Diastasis (RAD or DRAM, Tummy Muscle Separation)
  • Postnatal Pelvic Floor Assessments (including post third and fourth-degree perineal tears)
  • Return to Exercise Assessments
  • Mastitis
  • Bladder Issues – Stress Incontinence, Urge Incontinence/ Overactive Bladder Syndromes, Bladder Pain Syndromes (including Interstitial Cystitis) and Retention
  • Bowel Concerns – Constipation, Faecal Urgency, and Incontinence
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Pessary fittings
  • Painful Intercourse (Dyspareunia)
  • Persistent Pelvic and Vaginal Pain (including Endometriosis driven pain)
  • Pre and Post Gynae Surgery Pelvic Floor Muscle Training and Advice
  • Pre and Post Prostatectomy Pelvic Floor Muscle Training and Advice

We like to allow 60 minutes for your initial appointment (this may vary in some circumstances) to ensure that there is enough time to take a detailed and thorough history and to allow plenty of time for discussion, education, treatment and questions.

Your initial appointment will involve some form of assessment, but this will depend on the condition you are seeking treatment for. Where appropriate, this may consist of an internal vaginal or rectal exam upon consent, but this will be discussed in more detail at your appointment where you will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the reasons behind the assessment. Other assessment methods may include real-time ultrasound, biofeedback and musculoskeletal screening.

After your assessment, your Physiotherapist will be able to discuss with you the diagnosis and the options for treatment. This may involve a variety of things including (but certainly not limited to): pelvic floor muscle re-training, bladder and bowel management strategies, and strength and exercise programs. You will always leave our rooms with a good understanding of your diagnosis and with a comprehensive plan in place to target an improvement in your symptoms.

What Do I Wear?
Whatever you feel comfortable in! However, if you’re attending for a pain related condition, leggings or loose comfortable pants are recommended.

Do I need to bring anything?
Any relevant scans, letters or reports, as well as current medication lists. Sometimes we will also require a full bladder if we are planning on using the ultrasound machine for assessment, but the reception staff will let you know prior to your appointment.

No other stage of life stresses the pelvic floor more than pregnancy and childbirth. Even caesarian births affect the pelvic floor as it still stretches and bears the weight of the pregnant uterus for nine months. Maintaining pelvic floor strength and function throughout your pregnancy and postnatally is essential.

Pelvic Girdle Pain

Pelvic Girdle Pain is very common during pregnancy due to the major changes that occur within your body both physically and hormonally. A combination of hands-on treatment, strength and conditioning and mobility work is used to treat these aches and pains throughout pregnancy.

Women’s Health Classes

Exercise in pregnancy has been shown to reduce complications such as gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia and is a great way to reduce and treat pelvic girdle pain. Our classes are specific to postnatal concerns and they achieve all of the above in a supportive class environment, where little ones are welcome! Our classes are run across several Sports & Spinal clinics.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy is a blessing and is a thrilling, special time in your life that should be cherished. However, it can also be a physical and emotional rollercoaster, which is why it is so important for mums-to-be to take some time out to relax, be pampered and ease the aches, pains, and tension that come with pregnancy.

At Sports & Spinal we have a special pregnancy massage cushion, enabling Mums-to-be to be massaged while laying on their stomach. Our massage therapists use a specific massage oil blend to massage your entire body focusing on the areas that most need work.

Postnatal Follow-Up

A pelvic floor check is an essential part of your postnatal recovery and is highly recommended prior to returning to exercise to prevent any long term complications. Our Physiotherapists work closely with our Exercise Physiologists to ensure new mums are building their pelvic floor strength as well as their general strength and fitness to support their lifestyles and health and fitness goals.

The term pelvic floor refers to the group of muscles that sit at the base of the pelvis. Their job is to provide support to the pelvic organs; bladder, vagina, uterus and rectum, as well as maintain continence.

The pelvic floor muscles can become weakened during pregnancy and childbirth, but they are can also be affected by constipation, a chronic cough and repetitive heavy lifting. Menopause can also influence how these muscles work.

Incontinence refers to the involuntary loss of urine. There are several different types of incontinence.

Stress Urinary Incontinence refers to the involuntary loss of urine with exercise, coughing, sneezing or movement such as rolling in bed or standing from a chair.

Urge Urinary Incontinence refers to the involuntary loss of urine with the urge to go to the toilet. People often describe this as ‘not quite making it in time!’

Fecal Incontinence refers to the involuntary loss of stool; liquid or formed.

The term prolapse refers to any movement of the pelvic organs from their original position. Prolapse is commonly seen in women following childbirth but can happen at any stage during a woman’s life. Common symptoms include feelings of bulging or heaviness in the vagina or anus, difficulty emptying the bladder and/or bowel and difficulty keeping a tampon in.

Our Women’s Health classes are designed for your specific needs in exercise and rehabilitation through all phases of life.

Montana Moyle

Musculoskeletal & Women's Health Physiotherapist

Montana is currently on maternity leave and will return to clinic in 2025. 

Born and raised in Australia, Montana graduated with First Class Honours from the University of Queensland. After completing her physiotherapy degree, she began working in a private sports and musculoskeletal practice. She further honed her knowledge and skills in manual therapy and soft tissue release techniques there. Montana also pursued additional training in dry needling and Western Acupuncture and became proficient in conducting regular Mat Pilates sessions.

Montana was fortunate to spend a couple of years in the UK, gaining invaluable experience in a private hospital in Northern England and private practice in central London. While working in the orthopaedic ward, she deepened her understanding of surgical procedures and protocols, establishing crucial relationships with some of the world’s leading surgeons. In London, Montana worked in the boutique health and fitness space, combining hands-on treatment with Dynamic Reformer Pilates. Her exercise prescription skills are a testament to the high-quality training she received overseas.

Since joining the team at Sports and Spinal in 2020, Montana has furthered her training in the Women’s Health and Persistent Pain space, completing Level 1 and 2 APA Women’s Pelvic Health courses and NOI Group Explain Pain courses. This has equipped her to work with pelvic health conditions and complex persistent pain presentations. She is excited to continue to grow and develop in these fields.

When Montana is not in the clinic, you will find her at the beach with her dog and husband, in her local Pilates studio, or in the kitchen cooking a feast for her friends. She is passionate about promoting a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Montana enjoys working with patients from diverse backgrounds and collaborates with the talented team at Sports and Spinal to help her patients achieve their goals.

Montana is one of our Lead Physiotherapists and is an Associate Partner.

She is available for Physiotherapy and Women’s Health appointments at our North Lakes and Redcliffe clinics.
