Pelvic floor physio

Pelvic health is a highly specialised area of physiotherapy focusing on strengthening and rehabilitating the pelvic floor muscles.

Urinary control issues

Issues with urinary control are common as we age and after childbirth. Our female physiotherapists can help you retrain your pelvic floor so you can live confidently again.

Pain and sexual dysfunction

Make chronic pelvic pain a thing of the past. Our skilled physiotherapists can help you find relief from IBS, endometriosis, menstruation, and other perineal conditions.

What does a women’s health physiotherapist do?

Women’s health physiotherapists specialise in treating disorders of the pelvis and pelvic floor that can affect the vagina, bladder, and bowel. These include conditions relating to pregnancy and following childbirth.

Treatment focuses on retraining pelvic floor muscles to help relieve pain and restore function.

A women’s health physiotherapist will discuss your issues, examine you, and prescribe a course of treatment that is personalised to your individual case with the aim of improving your quality of life.

Why choose a female physiotherapist?

While all our physiotherapists are highly skilled and professional individuals, sometimes patients have special reasons to choose a female physiotherapist.

Many of our female patients appreciate seeing a physiotherapist who has firsthand experience of women’s anatomy and perhaps has experience of the issues that can affect women.

This can make patients feel more confident and relaxed before and during their appointment.

Rest assured that all our physiotherapists are trained to exceptionally high standards, and will put you at ease throughout your consultation.

New patients might ask us…

Can I book over the phone?

Yes! You can call find the clinic phone numbers at the very top of the page on a desktop, or in the side menu on a mobile.

You will find our Receptionists very friendly and helpful. They will find a time that suits you and make sure you know where to park, how to get there and where we are.

Do I need a doctor to refer me to you first?

You do not need a referral from a doctor to see a physiotherapist however if you do have one please bring it along. We like to communicate with your doctor and any other practitioners involved in your care.

Will you remind me that I have an appointment with you?

Yes! You will have your appointment confirmed a day or so before by text, email or telephone call – whichever you prefer.

How long will my appointment be?

Appointments are scheduled a minimum of 30 minutes apart. We find that in the majority of cases that this is the most appropriate amount of time. In more complex conditions or for multiple injuries longer appointments can be arranged.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Yes please! Any investigations or scans relating to the condition will help us understand your presentation better. Even if you just have the reports from scans they will be very helpful. Likewise any notes from other Therapists or doctors would be great. If you don’t have anything then don’t worry just bring yourself.

If you have problems related to walking or sport then please bring your runners or boots in for use to look at.

If you have a WorkCover claim or were injured at work then please bring your claim number. If you do not have a claim number but intend to get one please advise our receptionist when you arrive.

I'm running late!

Our aim is that everyone receives the attention they require and while achieving this we attempt to utilise all of our available time.  If you are running late please call ahead and our Receptionist will check with your physio to see if it is possible to still see you.  There may not be enough time to attend to your needs effectively.  If we rush you through your treatment it is at best not helpful to you and at worst unsafe.  We can simply reschedule your appointment for a later time.
