Our Approach to Treating Musculoskeletal, Women’s Health, and Pelvic Health Conditions

At Fostr Healthcare we pride ourselves on delivering top-quality care for musculoskeletal, women’s health, and pelvic health conditions through evidence-based physiotherapy. Our goal is to provide personalized treatment plans that promote recovery, reduce pain, and improve overall function.

Evidence-Based Physiotherapy

Evidence-based physiotherapy is the cornerstone of our practice. This approach involves integrating the best available research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values. By staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in physiotherapy and applying proven techniques, we ensure that our patients receive the most effective and efficient care possible.

Comprehensive Assessments

Our treatment process begins with a thorough assessment to understand the specific needs and conditions of each patient:

  1. Detailed History Taking: We gather comprehensive information about the patient’s medical history, lifestyle, and specific symptoms to identify the root cause of their condition.
  2. Physical Examination: A detailed physical examination helps us assess joint function, muscle strength, flexibility, posture, and movement patterns.
  3. Diagnostic Tools:  When necessary, we use diagnostic tools such as range of motion measurements, and strength testing to obtain a complete picture of the patient’s condition.

Individualized Treatment Plans

Based on the assessment, we develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to each patient’s unique needs and goals:

Musculoskeletal Health Rehabilitation

1. Manual Therapy
  • Joint Mobilization and Manipulation: Techniques to improve joint mobility, reduce pain, and enhance function.
  • Soft Tissue Mobilization: Hands-on treatment to release muscle tension, improve circulation, and promote healing.
  • Myofascial Release: Specialized techniques to relieve fascial restrictions and improve tissue flexibility.
  • Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM): Use of specially designed instruments to detect and treat soft tissue dysfunction, breaking down scar tissue and fascial restrictions to improve mobility and reduce pain.

2. Therapeutic Exercise

  • Strength Training: Exercises to build muscle strength, support joint health, and enhance overall physical performance.
  • Flexibility and Mobility Exercises: Programs to improve range of motion, reduce stiffness, and prevent injuries.
  • Functional Rehabilitation: Exercises designed to restore functional movement patterns required for daily activities and specific job or sport-related tasks.

3. Advanced Therapeutic Modalities

  • Laser Therapy: Utilizing laser therapy to reduce pain, decrease inflammation, and promote tissue healing through the use of targeted light energy.
  • Cryotherapy: Application of cold therapy to reduce pain and inflammation, improve circulation, and accelerate recovery from acute injuries and surgical procedures.
  • Shockwave Therapy: Use of high-energy sound waves to treat chronic pain and stimulate healing in conditions such as tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and musculoskeletal disorders.
  • Electrotherapy: Use of electrical stimulation to reduce pain, enhance muscle function, and promote healing. Techniques include Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), Interferential Therapy (IFT), and Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES).
  • Dry Needling Therapy: Insertion of fine needles into trigger points and tight muscle bands to relieve pain, improve mobility, and promote healing by targeting myofascial pain syndromes.

4. Biofeedback

  • Biofeedback Therapy: Use of biofeedback devices to help patients gain awareness and control over physiological functions. This technique is particularly effective for managing pain, improving muscle activation, and enhancing relaxation techniques.

Women’s Health Physiotherapy

1. Pregnancy and Post-Natal Care
  • Pregnancyl Support: Addressing issues such as pelvic girdle pain, low back pain, and preparation for labor through tailored exercise and manual therapy.
  • Postnatal Recovery: Rehabilitation for diastasis recti, pelvic floor strengthening, and addressing musculoskeletal issues arising from pregnancy and childbirth.

2. Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

  • Urinary Incontinence: Treatment for stress, urge, and mixed urinary incontinence through pelvic floor muscle training, biofeedback, and lifestyle modifications.
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Management strategies including pelvic floor exercises, pessary support (in collaboration with a physician), and education on body mechanics.
  • Pelvic Pain Syndromes: Comprehensive care for conditions such as vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis, and chronic pelvic pain using manual therapy, biofeedback, and pain management techniques.

3. Sexual Health Conditions

  • Dyspareunia (Painful Intercourse): Treatment involving manual therapy, pelvic floor muscle training, and education to reduce pain and improve sexual function.
  • Pelvic Floor-Related Sexual Health Issues: Addressing conditions such as vaginismus and sexual dysfunction through specialized exercises and biofeedback.

Gastro/Colorectal Pelvic Floor Conditions

1. Fecal Incontinence

  • Pelvic Floor Muscle Training: Strengthening and coordinating pelvic floor muscles to improve control and reduce symptoms.
  • Biofeedback Therapy: Enhancing awareness and control of pelvic floor muscles through visual and auditory feedback.

2. Chronic Constipation

  • Manual Therapy and Exercises: Techniques to improve bowel movements, including abdominal massage and pelvic floor relaxation exercises.
  • Dietary and Lifestyle Advice: Guidance on dietary changes and habits to promote regular bowel movements.

3. Pelvic Floor Dyssynergia

  • Coordination Exercises: Training to improve the coordination of pelvic floor muscles during bowel movements.
  • Biofeedback Therapy: Helping patients learn to properly relax and contract pelvic floor muscles.

Patient Education and Self-Management

  • Education on Condition and Treatment: Informing patients about their condition, the underlying causes, and the rationale behind the treatment approach.
  • Home Exercise Programs: Providing tailored exercise programs that patients can perform at home to complement in-clinic treatments.
  • Lifestyle and Ergonomic Advice: Offering guidance on lifestyle changes, posture correction, and ergonomic adjustments to prevent recurrence and promote long-term health.

Ongoing Support and Monitoring

We believe in continuous support and monitoring to ensure optimal outcomes:

  • Regular Follow-Up Appointments: Monitoring progress, addressing any concerns, and adjusting treatment plans as needed.
  • Patient Feedback: Encouraging patients to provide feedback on their treatment experience and progress, ensuring a collaborative approach to care.
