When should you Start Seeking Help From pelvic Physios? What Problems & Symptoms Can we Help with?
Pelvic floor disorder (PFD) is incredibly common, and you may not even realize you have it. Women, in particular, become so accustomed to dealing with pain that they are less likely to reach out for pelvic health help.
Our clinical pelvic floor physiotherapist strength team are aware of the stereotypes, and we always advocate for your health, comfort, and quality of life.

- Having a bulge emerge from the vagina or anus opening; prolapse
- Uncomfortable or painful sex
- Urinary incontinence / faecal incontinence / bladder bowel problems
- Chronic pressure, inflammation, pain, or tension on the pelvis
- Being pregnant or postnatal after childbirth
- Constipation or irregular bowel movement / bladder leaks
- Discomfort in the vagina, pelvis, or bladder

our Physiotherapist can help women with all Women's Health issues
Everyone has a pelvis and a pelvic floor with muscles and connective tissue holding it together.
Your pelvic floor protects and keeps organs like your bladder, urethra, intestines, and rectum in place. If you have a uterus, it is also located in the pelvis, and it can be at risk of prolapse in some instances.
Within the pelvis, between the pubic bone and the tailbone (coccyx) is where you’ll find the muscles that make up your pelvic floor.
They provide support for the intestine and the bladder, in addition to the uterus and the vagina in females.
As the urethra, vagina, and anus travel through the pelvic floor, they are surrounded by bands of muscle that function as sphincters.
You may ask naturally yourself what factors contribute to a weak PF?
These variables include hard lifting, being overweight or obese, chronic constipation or persistent straining to have a bowel movement, chronic coughing due to smoking or health problems, and being overweight or obese. Getting older.
As women age and go through menopause, the muscles that support the pelvic floor can get weaker. Our pelvic floor physiotherapist can help with these issues.
Why do you need to protect or strengthen your pelvic floor?
By improving the pelvic health, strength and mobility of your pelvic floor, you’re more likely to reduce discomfort and pressure.
This pelvic relief can help you live a more active, healthy, and accessible lifestyle.

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy Care for incontinence, osteoporosis and menopause
As you get older, you can feel your body changing. And when you hit menopause, your hormones and bodily functions start to alter your body drastically.
You may be familiar with the hot flashes, less bladder control and mood swings that come with menopause.
However, for many, menopause makes them more likely to prolapse, have vaginal dryness, have pelvic discomfort, or lose strength / have floor weakness and bone density declines (Osteoporosis).
All of which can be managed with women’s pelvic health services so you can prevent and avoid being in pain or discomfort.
