PELVIC PAIN REPORT
From Clifton Hill Physiotherapy
The $6 Billion Woman and the $600 Million Girl’ – Pelvic Pain Report
“Pelvic pain, while common, is often a hidden burden to the lives of many women. With emerging national and international knowledge about pain and the heavy toll it poses on individuals and society, it is timely that this report ‘The $6 Billion Woman and the $600 Million Girl’ raises pelvic pain to public attention as an important health issue. This call for action is overdue in a much neglected area of health and healthcare impacting the lives of so many women and girls in our community.”
Dr. Christine Bennett
Adequately addressing Pelvic Pain is an issue very close to us at Clifton Hill Physiotherapy. The Australian Government has made a commitment to Australian women to ensure a sustainable, high quality health system, which is responsive to all women now and in the future with a clear focus on illness prevention and health promotion as part of the National Women’s Health policy.
The Pelvic Pain Report highlights addressing pelvic pain must be a cornerstone of that commitment.
Kiera Hannigan and Jennifer Langford (Pelvic Physiotherapists at Clifton Hill Physiotherapy) share a strong passion for empowering women and men with pelvic pain with knowledge and strategies to overcome the burden of pelvic pain and live a fulfilling life.
Along with providing appropriate treatment with a compassionate and understanding approach, Kiera and Jen have a particular interest in a biopsychosocial approach to pain management, educating patients in the current concepts of pain science so that they understand their pain and how to manage it.
