Specialist Physiotherapy for pelvic problems
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy has been shown to be an extremely successful, clinically proven treatment and is now known to be the ‘gold standard’ first-line treatment for conditions such as incontinence or prolapse.
Key tools for diagnosis include listening to a patient’s history, observing their posture and movements, examining their muscles and joints and internal examination.
A bespoke recovery plan is formulated from evidence-based therapies, including acupuncture, specific exercises, internal and manual therapy techniques, rehabilitative pelvic floor exercise, bladder retraining, Pilates, relaxation and breathing techniques, neuro-linguistic programming, toileting and positional modifications and fluid and dietary advice.
