Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy
Pelvic floor physio is a specialized branch of physiotherapy involving internal and external assessment and treatment of the pelvic floor muscles. Those muscles are located between the hip bones and the sacrum, and they serve as a bowl to support the pelvic organs including the bladder, colon and uterus. Any trauma to the pelvic floor can cause dysfunctions throughout the body, not just the pelvis and low back.
If you've had a child and think it's normal to pee a little when jumping, sneezing, coughing or laughing? Well it's not! Pelvic floor physio can help with this among many other issues such as;
- Urinary frequency, urgency & incontinence
- Sexual dysfunction
- Painful low back, hips & legs
- Post surgery (e.g caesarian)
- Post labour/birth pain
