Mastitis is an inflammation of the breast, but it is not always due to a bacterial infection, so treatment with antibiotics is not necessarily appropriate. Your qualified physiotherapist may be better placed to treat your condition. Symptoms of mastitis in breastfeeding women may include breast pain, redness, swelling and flu-like symptoms. Many women self-treat using firm massage techniques and hot showers to try to decrease the pain – actions which can actually make mastitis worse!

While some women cruise through the hormonal changes of menopause, the majority experience one or more of the most reported symptoms:
  • Heat flushes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood disturbances/mood swings
  • Impacts on memory
  • Sleep problems
  • Changes in sex drive/libido
  • Urinary incontinence and prolapse

“What is P.O.P.” you ask?

Pelvic Organ Prolapse. But what does it mean? Loss of support for the uterus, bladder or bowel so that one or more of these compartments can find themselves in the vagina. This can have an enormous impact on a woman’s health, affecting bowel, bladder and even sexual function.
