Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialisation of the physiotherapy profession associated with pelvic health. Located between the tailbone and pubic bone, the pelvic floor muscles support the bladder, bowel, uterus and vagina. Pregnancy, childbirth and pelvic surgery can significantly weaken these muscles. In many people with pelvic pain these muscles can be contracted, tight and painful and in need of relaxing and stretching. Men, women and children come to us for relief from continence problems, pain symptoms and sometimes to support planned or past pelvic surgery.
