PELVIC FLOOR PHYSIOTHERAPY

 

Do you suffer from urination urgency or frequency, such as getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom? Tight pelvic floor muscles could be to blame. 

Maybe it’s the opposite – do you experience urinary incontinence (leakage) when coughing or during physical activity? Weak pelvic floor muscles are the likely culprit.

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Fortunately, there are many ways to treat these symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction, including pelvic floor physiotherapy. In simple terms, a pelvic floor physiotherapist, such as our own Lindsay Bays, provides patients with pelvic floor exercises and education based on their individual needs uncovered through a thorough assessment and diagnosis.

    Not just for women!

    Evidently, there are many benefits of pelvic floor physiotherapy for those suffering from either pelvic floor tightness or weakness.

    An important thing to note is that this type of physiotherapy is not only for women, as often thought. There are many studies that have shown men to benefit from the same exercises and treatments, including:

    • Reduction in erectile dysfunction (ED)
    • Chronic constipation
    • and general chronic pain
