We are highly trained and experienced in treating a wide range of women’s health and pelvic floor conditions. We understand the sensitivity and privacy of these conditions and place a large emphasis on helping you feel safe and comfortable to discuss your symptoms with us.
Women’s health conditions are SO common. It is estimated that 1 in 3 women will experience urinary incontinence, 1 in 2 (who have ever had a baby) will experience prolapse symptoms, 1 in 10 will experience painful sex and 1 in 10 will experience faecal incontinence (1,2). We expect the numbers might actually be much higher than this as these conditions are not widely spoken about in the community and are often not reported to health professionals!
Fortunately, there is SO much that can be done to improve and, in many cases, cure these conditions. A pelvic floor physiotherapy consult is a great place to start! We help women on a daily basis with all of these conditions, by a using a range of assessment techniques and treatment strategies (not just pelvic floor exercises!).
We commonly treat the following conditions, in women of all ages, but please note this list is not exhaustive of what we can help with.
