Utilisation of physiotherapy services by Australian women.
Physiotherapists work across a diverse range of health settings and has been shown to be beneficial in the management of complex medical conditions specifically affecting women, including pregnancy related pelvic and back pain, gestational carpal tunnel syndrome, incontinence, post caesarean scarring and pain etc. However, there is no existing study that examines the characteristics and demographic of women who sought physiotherapy services in Australia. This study will be the first to capture the characteristics of Australian women who sought physiotherapy services and this data will inform the development of evidence-based physiotherapy in women’s health.
