What is Pelvic Physiotherapy

What is Pelvic Physiotherapy?
This is a specialized advanced area of physiotherapy that assesses and treats Pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD), which can affect men and women. PFD is a general term that is used to describe a number of conditions that may affect the urinary, reproductive, digestive, sexual and/or stability systems in the pelvis.

​What kind of conditions do we treat?
Conditions that are commonly treated are:

  • Bladder issues such as incontinence, urinary frequency or urgency
  • Bowels problems for example constipation and incontinence (leakage)
  • Pelvic organ prolapses
  • Gynaecological surgery support pre or post operation
  • Pelvic pain (including pain with intercourse, and pelvic examinations)

In addition

  • Pregnancy related pain and/ or dysfunction (pre- and post-natal)
  • Abdominal separation (rectus diastasis)
  • Pelvic floor strengthening/awareness
  • Caesarean or perineal scar management
  • Pelvic girdle pain
  • Orthopaedics
    • Low back pain
    • Neck pain
    • Hip
    • Post-surgical


How can Pelvic Physiotherapy help? 
For a lot of women, I see getting treatment in this specialized area is life changing. Unlike a sore arm or leg that is obvious to those around you, pelvic issues are considered a taboo to discuss and as a result so many people suffer in silence.  Restoration in this area comes in different forms and the most common statements are:
I am no longer in pain
I can jump on the trampoline with my kids
I can go back to running
I don’t have to hold back on laughing
I can leave the house
