Women’s Health Q & A

What health conditions can affect women?

If you’re a woman, you may be at risk for some unique health conditions. Certain illness can affect your reproductive system, organs, or bones. You may also experience special health needs as a result of pregnancy or childbirth.

Many women suffer from the following health conditions:

  • Breast/ovarian cancer
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Menopause
  • Weakened pelvic floor

Women may also be more likely to develop certain cancers, autoimmune conditions, or forms of heart disease. These conditions can cause painful symptoms which make it difficult to go about your everyday life. Fortunately, physical therapy can help.

What are some symptoms of women’s health issues?

While symptoms may vary depending on which conditions you’re suffering from, women’s health issues may cause the following symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Pain in muscles or joints
  • Infertility or miscarriage
  • Hormonal fluctuations
  • Loss of bone density

In some cases, the treatment you receive for other conditions can also lead to symptoms that are difficult to manage. For example, women undergoing treatment for cancer may feel tired and weak. Physical therapy can help you to rebuild your strength after an illness or medical treatment.
