continence & women's health physiotherapy 

A highly specialised area of Physiotherapy focused on significant improvements in quality of life. An expert Physiotherapist with additional training and skills is able to accurately diagnose and treat many pelvic conditions including:

  • Pelvic Floor dysfunction
  • Urinary Incontinence ('leaking' often associated with exercise or coughing/sneezing)
  • Urinary Urgency (not being able to 'hold on')
  • Urinary frequency (going to the toilet too often, including too often during the night, known as 'nocturia')
  • Overactive Bladder (often characterised by frequent urination, needing to rush to the toilet)
  • 'Prolapse' - Pelvic Organ Prolapse: bladder, bowel or uterine. Often characterised by heaviness or dragging low in the pelvis. Many women with prolapse can manage their symptoms with Physiotherapy, avoiding surgery.
  • Pelvic surgery - prolapse repair, hysterectomy
  • Paediatric Incontinence - including bed wetting and daytime 'accidents', as well as children with constipation.
  • Constipation
  • Antenatal / Postnatal conditions including Rectus Abdominus Diastatsis ('abdominal separation'), pelvic floor weakness, episiotomy scar management (LASER), breastfeeding issues (LASER for damaged nipples & Ultrasound for blocked milk ducts & mastitis) etc
