Men’s & Women’s Pelvic Health

Live and move with confidence. Achieve optimum physical function with the help of MGS’ specialists, based on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

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

Pelvic Health

What is it?

Urinary control issues

It is not uncommon to experience bladder leakage or urgency as a result of coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercising. Retraining your pelvic floor can help to minimise this problem and enhance your quality of life.

Pain and sexual dysfunction

Don’t suffer in silence with chronic pain. Find relief from the discomfort associated with IBS, endometriosis, menstruation, Vaginismus and other perineal conditions.

Pelvic prolapse

Fix prolapse without the need for surgery. Benefit from a personalised exercise program designed to help strengthen the pelvic floor 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.

Bowel management

Feel empowered and in control. Develop a predictable routine and learn strategies to manage constipation, bowel urgency and wind issues.

Surgery recovery

Ensure thorough preparation and rehabilitation as well as accelerated healing from gynaecological, prostate or bladder surgery. Feel comfortable to return to your daily activities sooner.

Pelvic health physiotherapy is the treatment and rehabilitation of pelvic floor muscle function

Pelvic health is a specialism within physiotherapy which aims to help men and women who are experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction. This can include bladder, bowel or sexual dysfunction, pain disorders and organ prolapse. There is a range of effective diagnostic and treatment options available including internal assessments, real-time ultrasounds and exercise programs.

Benefits

A specialist pelvic health physiotherapist can help prevent, cure or better manage complex conditions in order to restore quality of life.

They are highly trained and have the experience required to put you at ease whilst exploring sensitive topics and creating personalised exercise programs.

Method

The initial appointment involves completing a thorough ‘health history’ about your pelvic floor habits and experiences. To help with diagnosis, there may also be a real-time ultrasound assessment and internal examination, if you feel comfortable doing so. A management plan is then devised which may involve pelvic, bladder and bowel training, education and relaxation methods.

Results

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 with urinary control and bowel management 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.

Post treatment

Moving forward, it is important to continue with any dietary, lifestyle or exercise recommendations to ensure that results are sustained long-term. 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.
