Pelvic Health / Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles at the base of the spine which literally make up the floor of the pelvis. These muscles serve several important roles including: spine stability, bladder and bowel continence, birthing, and sexual function.

Pelvic floor physiotherapy assesses the pelvic floor musculature and function, checking their position, length, strength, and how they are working with the rest of the body to achieve all these complex functions.

From a detailed assessment, the root cause of your symptoms and problems can be determined. This is much the same as any other physiotherapy assessment.

Once the root cause has been determined, a specific treatment plan will be developed to address all of the contributing elements, to normalize the pelvic floor and resolve your problem(s).
