Patients are more and more frequently being referred to physiotherapy for a wide range of pelvic pain and incontinence issues. There is growing evidence for what physiotherapy can do to treat pelvic conditions in men and women and in our practice we see excellent outcomes for our patients.
We treat a variety of conditions including:
– Urinary incontinence
– Male and female pelvic pain
– Vaginal pain
– Pelvic organ prolapse
All patients are assessed by a licensed physiotherapist who is specifically trained and rostered in pelvic health management. They will take account of your full history and include any issues related to your low back, hips, core strength, previous injuries, surgeries or pregnancies. Treatments may include manual therapy, exercises, lifestyle and dietary advice depending on your particular needs.
Initial assessments last approximately one hour and follow up appointments are typically 30 minutes. In addition to an in-depth history of the patient’s complaint and screening for low back issues, the physiotherapists will carry out an internal examination (vaginally and/or rectally), much like a gynecological examination.
