Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is beneficial for women and men of any age experiencing problems that could be related to pelvic girdle dysfunction or pelvic floor issues. Pelvic floor dysfunction is very common, affecting 1 in 3 women and many men experience these symptoms too. Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is helpful for people experiencing difficulty with bladder or bowel control, pelvic organ prolapse, sexual pain or dysfunction and pelvic, tailbone and low back pain, as well as peri-natal conditions.
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy consists of an assessment which identifies asymmetry and/or muscle imbalance of the pelvic girdle and unhelpful movement patterns and postures.
Treatment is customized to each patient and often integrates pelvic floor retraining, helpful advice on bowel and bladder habits, posture correction, and hands-on techniques from the physiotherapist. This approach gives people back control of their symptoms and function.
