Direct aanmelden


Online @home
19:00 - 21:00


Menopause affects over 50% of people on the planet – but do we know enough about how this major hormonal change can affect all body systems, including pelvic health, in life after menopause?

In this Powertalk, Michelle Lyons will give an overview of the hormonal changes from peri to post menopause, with an exploration of the subsequent pelvic health changes/challenges and an evidence based overview of the role of pelvic rehab, and how it fits in a multi-disciplinary approach to management of GSM (Genito-urinary Syndrome of Menopause), and a wider view of how pelvic health at menopause impacts overall health & participation in exercise. We’ll cover:

  • The changing hormonal environment from peri to post menopause
  • Recognising the signs & symptoms of perimenopause beyond hot flashes
  • How this affects muscle, tendon & connective tissue function in general and specifically in pelvic health
  • Why hip health becomes increasingly important in pelvic health at menopause
  • The evidence supporting physiotherapy interventions for pelvic health at menopause
  • Why optimising pelvic health at midlife is essential for avoiding cardiovascular events after menopause (the biggest global killer of women)


After attending this Powertalk, attendees will:

  • Understand the hormonal changes of peri to post menopause
  • How the musculoskeletal system, including the genito-urinary system is involved & how to optimise it using tailored exercise prescription
  • Appreciate the evidence based role of pelvic rehab in managing GSM
