WOMEN’S HEALTH CLINIC
Many woman experience a gynaecological, pelvic floor or bladder problem at some point in their lives. When they do, they sometimes find it difficult or embarrassing to discuss and, as a result, some women begin to accept their condition as a normal part of their pregnancy or the ageing process.
With growing evidence that these conditions can be alleviated by therapy, The Forge Clinic in Richmond offers specialist Women’s Health treatment and advice.
Our practitioners are highly skilled in the assessment, management and treatment of a wide range of women’s health-related issues and also understand the importance to women of comfort, confidentiality and reassurance.
Your therapist will take a detailed history from you at your first appointment and allow plenty of time for you to discuss your symptoms. If they need to do an internal examination they will discuss this with you and only go ahead if they have your consent. They will talk in detail with you about their findings and agree your treatment plan in discussion with you.
