Because you are a woman

Because you are a woman

Women and men are similar in many ways. Nevertheless, there are important biological differences between the sexes that have an impact on the development, spread and course of widespread diseases such as heart attacks, osteoporosis or rheumatic diseases. These crucial differences are still not taken into account enough when it comes to the prevention and treatment of diseases.

The "Women`s Health Practice by Katharina Gundermann" is committed to gender-appropriate health care. With more than 25 years of professional experience in the field of women`s health, after my own pregnancies and birth experiences and many physiotherapeutic and sports medicine further trainings, I offer you consultations and treatments on the most modern and scientifically sound level.

The Women's Health practice provides counselling and treatment for, among other things:

  • PMS
  • Pain, lack of strength due to endometriosis
  • Vulvodynie, Dyspareunie
  • Sport in the menstrual cycle
  • Growing pains (e.g. Scheuermann's disease)
  • Hip dysplasia (girls affected 3x more often)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Depression
  • Breast cancer
  • Pregnancy complaints

Because you are no longer
alone

Because you are no longer alone

Pregnancy and the birth of a child demand maximum performance from the female body.
Within a short time, the muscular and skeletal system carries significantly more body mass, the cardiovascular system pumps 1 litre more blood, the strong hormonal changes have a great influence on the digestive system and your psyche, among other things.

Naturally, your baby will be at the forefront of your mind around the clock. And yet it's an important time to look after your wellbeing too! Maybe your back hurts or you have trouble walking because your pelvis hurts. Neck tension with headaches are not uncommon during breastfeeding. Depending on the study, 30-50% of all first-time mothers suffer from stress incontinence (urine leakage when sneezing, jumping, etc.) and 30% of them suffer from a mixed form of stress and urge incontinence (urgent need to go to the toilet and not being able to hold urine). Some women suffer from swelling and gain a lot of weight. I also often see women with joint pain in the practice.

The Women's Health practice provides counselling and treatment for, among other things:

  • Mom to be Check-Up (ausführlicher Check-Up zur Haltung, Rumpf- und Beckenmuskulatur, Beckenboden, Beckenschmerzen und vielem mehr) in der Schwangerschaft
  • Mom Check-Up (ausführlicher Check-Up zur Haltung, Rektusdiastase, Rumpfmuskulatur, Beckenboden – weitere Infos s.u.) nach der Schwangerschaft
  • Back pain with and without radiation
  • Pain in the pelvic ring (pubic bone, hip joints, ISG)
  • Tension in the pelvic floor (painful sexual intercourse, problems with bowel movements or urination)
  • Stress incontinence, urge incontinence, mixed forms of incontinence
  • Neck tension with and without headache
  • significant weight gain
  • Swelling of the arms and legs
  • Ergonomics advice (breastfeeding posture, pram adjustment, changing
    bathing position)
  • Joint pain
  • Regression after birth
  • Rectus diastasis
  • Pain relief with TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation)

Mom check-up

Who do I recommend the Mom Check-Up to?

More than half of all women experience weakness in their abdominal and pelvic floor muscles after the birth of a child. For example, they find it difficult to push the pram uphill, walk longer distances or carry the baby. The feeling of "breaking through", "not being able to hold between the legs" and "looking pregnant" not only puts a strain on them physically but also psychologically. Especially if there is also incontinence.

In up to one third of women, the gap in the anterior abdominal wall (rectus diastasis) does not close even 2 months after birth and there is a risk of back and pelvic pain and bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunctions.

All this is treatable and does not have to be accepted!

Ich empfehle Müttern den Mom Check-Up nach der gynäkologischen “6 Wochen Nachuntersuchung”. Wir behandeln aber auch jede Frau, die schon vor Jahren geboren hat und noch immer unter Symptomen leidet.

What can I expect at the Mom Check-Up?

The 90-minute session includes, among other things:

- Examination of the pelvic floor
- Examination of the core muscles (abdomen, back, diaphragm)

- Assessment of posture and joint mobility
- Screening for bladder, bowel or sexual dysfunctions

Afterwards you will receive, among other things:

- Rehabilitation or training plan taking into account your lifestyle and goals.
- Advice on ergonomic behaviour when breastfeeding, carrying, bathing, taking the baby out

Katharina Gundemann - because you change

Because you change

Because you change

The "hot years". The "best years". The "golden years"...

Definitely years that mean big changes: Your oestrogen levels drop, which can not only cause hot flushes, mood swings and hair loss, but can also be associated with joint pain, osteoporosis, incontinence and a higher risk of heart attack.

Deine Muskelmasse nimmt ab, deine Fettspeicher füllen sich (vor allem am Bauch), deine Ausdauer lässt nach und deine Knochendichte verringert sich. Gleichzeitig sind die Kinder aus dem Haus, die Karriere gemacht und du hast Zeit, dich um dich zu kümmern.

The Women's Health practice provides counselling and treatment for, among other things:

  • Pelvic floor consultation (examination, information and training plan - see below for further information)
  • Pelvic floor training with biofeedback, TENS and electrical muscle stimulation (EMS)
  • Fibromyalgia (diffuse joint pain)
  • Cancer
  • depressive moods
  • incipient dementia
  • Weight gain
  • Cardiovascular diseases (vascular calcification with heart disease,
    Stroke)
  • Autoimmune diseases (e.g. Hashimoto's)
  • Osteoporosis (decalcification of the bones with risk of bone fracture)
  • Balance training as fall prevention
  • we offer strength training, mobilisation and relaxation, yoga and pilates

Pelvic floor consultation

To whom do I recommend the pelvic floor consultation?

Due to the specific anatomy of the female pelvis (3 openings for the urethra, vagina and anus), the extra strain caused by pregnancy and childbirth and the lack of oestrogen after the menopause, women are more often affected by urinary incontinence than men. In addition, many women suffer from their stressful everyday lives and find little time for themselves and to relax. This can also lead to painful tension in the pelvic floor.

Man unterscheidet zwischen Belastungsinkontinenz (Druck im Bauchraum nimmt zu z.B. beim Niesen oder Springen, plötzlicher Urinverlust ohne Harndrang, eher jüngere Frauen betroffen), Dranginkontinenz (plötzlicher, unaufhaltsamer Harndrang mit Urinverlust, Reizblase, nimmt im Alter zu) und Mischinkontinenz (bei Auftreten von Symptomen beider Inkontinenzformen).

I recommend the pelvic floor consultation to all women who suffer from the above symptoms.

What can I expect at the pelvic floor consultation?

The 90-minute session includes, among other things:

  • Untersuchung des Beckenbodens
  • Untersuchung der Bauch- und Atemmuskulatur
  • Beurteilung der Haltung und der Funktion des Brustkorbs
  • Beurteilung der Körperhaltung und der Gelenkbeweglichkeit
  • Screening nach Blasen-, Darm- oder sexuellen Dysfunktionen

Afterwards you will receive, among other things:

- Rehabilitation or training plan taking into account your lifestyle and goals.
- Advice on ergonomic carrying, sitting and toilet behaviour
- Advice on sports behaviour
