Understanding the Pelvic Floor

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles, ligaments, and tissues that support the pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, and rectum. These muscles play a crucial role in various bodily functions, such as maintaining bladder and bowel control, supporting pelvic organs, and contributing to sexual function.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Unfortunately, many factors can lead to pelvic floor dysfunction, including pregnancy and childbirth, chronic constipation, aging, hormonal changes, and even high-impact exercises. This can result in a range of symptoms, such as urinary or fecal incontinence, pelvic pain, painful intercourse, and pelvic organ prolapsed.

Our Approach to Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

At PhysioMaxx, we offer specialized pelvic floor physiotherapy services to address these concerns and help you regain your comfort and confidence. Our approach focuses on providing personalized care tailored to your specific needs. We believe in treating the whole person, not just the symptoms, to promote overall well-being.

  • Comprehensive Assessment

Our journey starts with a thorough and private assessment by one of our qualified pelvic floor physiotherapists. During this consultation, we take the time to listen to your concerns, medical history, and any previous treatments you might have tried. We perform a detailed examination, which may include both internal and external assessments, to gain a comprehensive understanding of your condition.

  • Customized Treatment Plan:

Based on the assessment findings, we develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. This plan may include various evidence-based interventions, exercises, and techniques to address your specific symptoms and improve pelvic floor function.

  • Pelvic Floor Exercises

Pelvic floor exercises are a key component of our treatment approach. Our experienced physiotherapist will guide you through the proper technique and progression of these exercises to strengthen and relax the pelvic floor muscles effectively.

  • Manual Therapy

Our skilled therapists may use manual therapy techniques to address muscle tension, joint mobility, and tissue restrictions in the pelvic region. This can help improve blood flow, reduce pain, and enhance overall pelvic floor function.

  • Biofeedback

To aid your understanding and control of the pelvic floor muscles, we may use biofeedback technology during your sessions. Biofeedback provides real-time feedback on muscle activity, empowering you to engage the correct muscles more effectively.

  • Education and Lifestyle Modifications

We believe that empowering you with knowledge about your condition is vital to your progress. Our physiotherapists will provide education on bladder and bowel habits, proper body mechanics, and lifestyle modifications that can positively impact your pelvic floor health.
