Women’s Health Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy for Women in Qatar

The Women’s Health Physiotherapy Team at Sidra Medicine care for women throughout their pregnancy and beyond. Our focus is providing optimal physiotherapy assessment and treatment to women who are pregnant, post-delivery, pre and post-menopausal.

Our team work in collaboration with Obstetricians and Gynecologists to provide specialist services aimed at empowering women to be involved in their health care through the provision of self-care techniques, exercises and education.

Our program is focused on the therapeutic treatment of all disorders affecting the pelvis and pelvic floor, as well as other conditions that commonly affect women during pregnancy.

Common conditions we treat include:

  • Pregnancy Related Pelvic girdle pain
  • Pregnancy Related Carpal tunnel syndrome (pain, numbness or tingling in the hand)
  • Urinary / faecal incontinence
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Dyspareunia (pain with intercourse) and other pelvic pain conditions
  • Chronic constipation

During your visit with the physiotherapist, they will assess your condition by asking you questions about your symptoms and by performing some tests. They will then use this information to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This might involve regular visits with the physiotherapist to provide hands on treatment, advice, and a detailed home exercise program.

Advanced Technology & A Qualified Team You Can Count On

As the only hospital offering comprehensive women’s health physiotherapy services in Qatar, we have a responsibility to provide our patients with the best care possible. We have equipped our facility with the latest technology to improve the level of care we offer our patients. This includes Real-Time Ultrasound, which can create a live feed of pelvic floor muscles in action. We also use low-level light therapy to help with breast feeding problems and to heal open wounds and scar tissue.

All of our physiotherapists have postgraduate university qualifications and are highly specialized in this area of medicine. Each one is also trained in trigger point acupuncture to help patients relieve pain from musculoskeletal problems.

You must have a referral from the Obstetrics or Gynecology Departments to use this service. Discuss physiotherapy with our staff if you think it would be helpful for you or a loved one receiving services at Sidra Medicine.
