  • Breast health and lymphedema management following surgery or radiation therapy for breast cancer.
  • Treatment for conditions such as endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and osteoporosis.
  • Rehabilitation for injuries related to sports or physical activity, such as ACL tears and stress fractures.
  • Post-operative care and rehabilitation following gynecological surgeries such as hysterectomy and mastectomy.
  • Education and counseling on healthy lifestyle choices, including exercise and nutrition, to promote overall health and wellbeing. 


Physiotherapy can provide women with individualized care and tailored treatment plans to address their unique health concerns, improve function, and enhance quality of life.
