Pelvic Health

Pelvic Health physiotherapists have undergone additional post graduate training to enable them to effectively assess and treat the unique issues women encounter in respect to pain, function, and the pelvic floor. 

The sessions are completely confidential and involve initial questioning to ensure a thorough understanding of the patient's story, history, and goals. We then perform an assessment of movement and function depending on what the patient's main issues are. This may involve an assessment of the patient's tummy and internal assessment of pelvic floor muscles (if required). The patient is in control of the assessment at all times and has the right to refuse any aspect of their care if they so wish.

Physiotherapy can help with pelvic floor muscle training and rehabilitation, exercises to prevent incontinence, urinary/ faecal urge strategies, bladder retraining, optimal toileting techniques, guidance with appropriate lifestyle changes, pre/post op advice and prolapse management.

Our pelvic floor muscles are part of our "core" muscles, and when they are weak this can also be a factor with ongoing back and pelvic compliants. 

Let us know if you have any questions on how pelvic health physio/ treating your pelvic floor can help you.
