Pelvic Pain – What is Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation?
Urinary control issues
It is not uncommon to experience bladder leakage or urgency due to coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercising. Retraining your pelvic floor muscles through the help of a professional pelvic floor physio can help to minimise this problem for both men and women and enhance your quality of life.
Pain and sexual dysfunction
Don't suffer in silence with chronic pelvic pain. Find relief from the discomfort associated with IBS, endometriosis, menstruation, Vaginismus and other perineal conditions caused by pelvic floor dysfunction and continence issues.
Fix prolapse without the need for surgery. Through pelvic floor muscle exercises, benefit from a personalised exercise program designed to help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and support your internal organs.
Pre and post-natal therapy
Services such as ‘prehabilitation' and risk factor identification during pregnancy as well as muscular retraining and support postpartum can help women to feel supported, educated and confident.
Feel empowered and in control. Develop a predictable routine and learn strategies to manage constipation, bowel urgency, and wind issues - ensure healthy bowel habits for the long term.
A pelvic floor physiotherapist can ensure thorough preparation and rehabilitation as well as accelerated healing from gynaecological, prostate or bladder surgery. Feel comfortable returning to your daily activities sooner.

A specialist pelvic floor physiotherapist can help prevent, cure or better manage complex conditions to restore quality of life.
Our specialised pelvic floor physios are highly trained health professionals with the experience required to put you at ease whilst exploring sensitive topics and creating personalised exercise programs for both men and women.
The initial appointment involves completing a thorough ‘health history’ about your pelvic floor habits and experiences. To help with diagnosis, our pelvic floor physiotherapists may recommend a real-time ultrasound assessment and internal examination if you feel comfortable doing so. Our pelvic floor physiotherapists are here to provide clinical expertise. A management plan is devised, which may involve pelvic, bladder and bowel training, education, pelvic floor muscle exercises, and relaxation methods to put your pelvic pain at ease.
Due to the complexity of conditions affecting the pelvic region, it is difficult to provide a timeline for results but most people see an improvement in urinary incontinence and control and bowel function and bowel control within as little as 2-6 weeks. For pre and post-natal or surgical treatment, you can rest assured that undertaking therapy will make the process more comfortable, and healing will be accelerated. MGS only offer pelvic floor physiotherapy of the highest standard.
Following your pelvic floor physiotherapy treatment, continuing with any dietary, lifestyle or exercise recommendations is important to ensure long-term results are sustained. Please be aware that programs may need to be adjusted in future due to life-stage milestones such as menopause or pregnancy.

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.
