Your Pelvic Floor
These muscles need to be exercised every day to stay healthy. Your pelvic floor can become weak for many reasons: Pregnancy, Childbirth, Hypermobility, Weight gain, Menopause and numerous other reasons. A specific individually tailored exercise program can improve weakness but if you have a dysfunction then you will need more specialist intervention. Pelvic floor dysfunction can encompass many problems:
Prolapse – Rectocele, Cystocele, uterine prolapse
Pain with toileting (dysurai)
Painful intercourse (dysparunia)
Problems opening your bowels (obstructive defecation)
All of these problems may be improved with specialist physiotherapy input.
We use biofeedback, muscle stimulation, trigger point release, acupuncture, massage and other manual therapies to target the underlying problem.
