Menopause MOT

With many more women today completing their families in their later 30’s and early 40’s, the fluctuation in hormone function around this time can make it a challenging time both physically and mentally.

Symptoms of perimenopause can extend over a number of years until finally the day arrives when it has been a year since your last period and officially you become post menopausal.  Although many symptoms attributed to the reduction in oestrogen in our bodies may reduce, the effects on a women’s body of reduced oestrogen remains. 

When women begin to experience early perimenopausal symptoms, it is the ideal time to arrange a ‘Menopause MOT’.  A menopause physiotherapy assessment is an opportunity to learn more about the physical changes which your body maybe experiencing, as well as taking a proactive approach to looking after yourself well in this life stage. 

“Warm and encouraging, Julie explained everything very well, and helped me to feel what was going, and what I could do to help myself.”
