Men's, Women's and Pelvic Health

What is pelvic floor dysfunction and what can you do about it?

Pelvic floor dysfunction can look like a lot of different things to a lot of different people.

When there's an issue with your pelvic floor, you may experience

*Leaking of urine when you laugh, cough, sneeze, jump, stand up etc

*Faecal incontinence

*Not being able to control passing wind

*Pelvic pain

*Pain just before, during or after sex

*A heavy, dragging sensation in your pelvis

*Urgency where you suddenly develop an overwhelming need to get to a toilet with or without experiencing incontinence on the way

*Needing to go to the toilet too frequently throughout the day


*Physical prevention of vaginal penetration

While there is often a belief that all pelvic floor issues can be addressed with the same treatment - doing your pelvic floor muscle exercises (sometimes called Kegels), this isn't going to be the case for every person. In some instances, this may make symptoms from a tight or overactive pelvic floor worse. Also, as is the case for any exercise regime, the optimal dosage and intensity isn't going to be the same for every person.

We can help. We have senior physiotherapists who have completed further postgraduate university degrees specific to assessing and treating the pelvic floor and the associated conditions.

Seeing a pelvic floor physiotherapist via telehealth is a safe, easy and effective way to receive treatment. There's strong evidence that telehealth can reduce incontinence, improve pelvic floor muscle function and improve overall quality of life.

If you'd like to find out more, we offer completely free, no-obligation 10 minute appointments with our senior physiotherapists to discuss your symptoms and give you advice on the treatment options available.
