What is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialized area of physiotherapy focused on the assessment and treatment of conditions related to the pelvic floor muscles, ligaments and connective tissues. The pelvic floor muscles support the organs within the pelvis, including the bladder, uterus, and rectum and play a crucial role in bowel and bladder function, sexual function and stability of the pelvis and spine.

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy Assessment

Pelvic floor physiotherapy involves a comprehensive assessment for both men and women, of pelvic floor function and dysfunction including pelvic pain, urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and sexual dysfunction.

As part of the assessment, there is often an intrapelvic component. However, if this feels like an obstacle for you, we can still help. We will meet you wherever you are at in your journey. Your physiotherapist would be more than happy to discuss alternatives that will encourage optimal pelvic floor function, improve quality of life and promote overall pelvic health and well-being.
