Hatfield Women’s Health Physiotherapy covers all areas relating to Obstetrics (pregnancy) and Gynaecology. Shockingly 1 in 3 women experience women’s health problems during their lifetime. However, many tolerate these problems, often for years, either too embarrassed to seek help or unaware that treatments are available.
Women’s health is a very unique and specialist area of Female Physiotherapy. Our Physiotherapy at the Hatfield Practice is highly confidential and respects the sensitive nature of these problems. We understand how upsetting talking about some of these problems can be. It is important to be thoughtful and experienced in dealing sensitively with patients. We will work very hard on putting you at ease, in the comfort of a comfortable, warm and private setting. Professionalism and privacy are essential. Everything you say will remain strictly confidential.
