Specialised pelvic and women’s health physiotherapy service. Individualised, highly specialist physiotherapy treatments are offered for a variety of pelvic health and pelvic floor conditions.
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy aims to empower men and women to gain freedom from their pelvic health problems and concerns, which are often preventing them from living the life they wish to live. I provide expert assessment and specialist treatment for a variety of pelvic health conditions related to men, women and children.
I understand the highly sensitive nature of many of the conditions we treat and pride ourselves in our ability to put patient’s at ease allowing them to talk about their concerns in an open way.
Why Pelvic Function?
The pelvis is complicated, with varied functional demands in one place. Many patients think of the pelvis in the context of bladder, bowel or sexual function. To others it's all about movement or musculoskeletal function – this is particularly true for sportsmen and women, and women with pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain. This website aims to provide sufficient information for you to be able to identify if you have a pelvic problem that might respond to pelvic physiotherapy. It also seeks to reassure those who are apprehensive about the process and procedures involved.
Although patterns, trends and signatures exist, all patients are unique and have their own history and (her)story.
If you have a problem where the doctors have been saying “There is nothing wrong with you”, consider there might be nothing sinister or abnormal detected on medical testing. There might be an imbalance in muscles, nerves, or even your behaviour. Get an assessment by an appropriately trained pelvic physiotherapist (Women’s Health and/or Men’s Health).
What is pelvic physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is the assessment, treatment and management of physical conditions using physical modalities, manual techniques and education. It focuses on ‘levels of intervention’ – primarily what you can do to help yourself, and what the therapist can do to re-balance and restore function. Pelvic physiotherapy aims to shift whatever imbalance is causing pelvic symptoms, thereby improving quality of life and general activity.
