Pelvic Floor muscles are the layer of muscles that support the pelvic organs and help us control our bladder and bowel function.
Common causes of pelvic floor dysfunction include childbirth, obesity, menopause, prostate surgery and chronic straining from lifting and constipation.
At Impact Physiotherapy, we have Post Graduate trained physiotherapists who specialise in pelvic floor issues.
The conditions they treat include:
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Urge urinary incontinence
- Faecal incontinence and Chronic constipation
- Pre / Post prostate surgery
- Dyspareunia (painful sexual intercourse)
- Post-natal assistance
- Pelvic Girdle Pain
- RAD rehabilitation
The first assessment will be one hour long to establish a thorough history of your pelvic floor function and may include a real time ultrasound or internal examination. This is important in order to diagnose correctly and then provide the appropriate treatment program for your issue.
