Pelvic Health

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is the treatment of problems within the pelvis or pelvic floor muscles. It is thought that one in three women will experience urinary incontinence at some point in their life. This number increases to around 50% of women participating in sports. Although incontinence is very common it is not normal and can be treated.

About Your Assessment

Prior to coming to the clinic for your initial assessment, we will arrange for our Women’s Health physio to contact you for a brief chat.

Your assessment and treatment will depend upon your presenting condition. We will start with taking a confidential and detailed history. Whilst these sensitive issues are often difficult to discuss, understanding the onset of your symptoms and how your daily life is affected is vital in directing your treatment. Your physical assessment will most likely involve examination of your abdominal muscles, pelvis and lumbar spine. You will also be offered an internal examination. This is an important part of your examination and necessary in identifying the tone, strength and control of your pelvic floor muscles. Using finger palpation the pelvic floor muscles and connective tissue will be assessed for muscle tone, tenderness, sensation and signs of pelvic organ prolapse. Following this the pelvic floor muscle will be tested for strength and endurance. Once we establish your baseline of pelvic floor muscle control we can then develop a specific and individualised exercise programme. The assessment findings will be discussed with you and treatment will depend upon findings and your symptoms.
