Pelvic Floor and Continence Physiotherapy

Problems related to the pelvic floor and pelvic organs are incredibly common, can present at any life stage and affect different women in different ways.

Some of the conditions we commonly see include:

 

  • Stress urinary incontinence - leakage of urine with activities such as sneezing, coughing, running and jumping.

  • Overactive bladder or urge incontinence - a sudden and intense desire to urinate which may come on without reason or during circumstances such as hearing running water or putting a key in the front door.

  • Prolapse of the pelvic organs (uterus/cervix, bladder and bowel). 

  • Bowel dysfunction - difficulties with constipation, emptying bowels, faecal urgency/leakage and difficulty controlling wind.

  • Pelvic pain - this may be superficial pain in the perineum or deep pelvic pain. Includes pain related to sexual intercourse. 

  • Childbirth - treatment for childbirth related pelvic floor and continence problems such as tears to the pelvic floor, weak pelvic floor muscles, overactive/tight pelvic floor muscles, difficulties with bladder and bowel control, pain with sexual intercourse, advice on safe return to exercise post-nataly.

  • Coccyx (tailbone) pain

  • Surgery - physiotherapy pre and post pelvic surgery such as hysterectomy.
