What is pelvic physiotherapy?

Pelvic health physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of a range of conditions related to the pelvic floor, or symptoms that manifest themselves in that area. Pelvic Floor (Pelvic Health) Physiotherapists have specialized postgraduate training that includes using internal and external “hands-on” or manual techniques to evaluate the function of the pelvic floor muscles.

We are proud to offer virtual physiotherapy appointments so that our clients can start or continue physiotherapy treatments from the comfort of home. For those who may prefer, our physiotherapists are happy to conduct your consultation virtually to discuss private or sensitive matter.

The Importance of the Pelvic Floor

The pelvic floor sits under the uterus, bladder, and large intestine (bowel) and includes muscles, ligaments, nerves and connective tissue. It plays an important role in the body by providing support for the bladder, genitals, uterus and anus, and help with urine and bowel control. The pelvic floor also contains the muscles that contract during orgasm.

When the pelvic floor muscles become weakened, urine leakage and reduced control over the bowels can occur. This is why pelvic floor muscle training is so important, in particular for women after childbirth.

Although the pelvic floor plays such an important role in our health, many women (and men!) feel uncomfortable admitting that they are suffering from pelvic floor dysfunction, and so it often goes untreated.

This silence on the subject can result in a lot of unnecessary suffering. But it doesn't have to be that way!
