Women’s Health: Pelvic Floor Retraining
The pelvic floor is a complex and important group of muscles and fascia which play a very important role in continence, sexual function, pelvic organ support and support of the back and pelvis. Pelvic floor dysfunction can occur in women of all ages. We use real-time ultrasound; a tool that can be used to assess the function of the pelvic floor muscles and provide visual feedback to the patient during the retraining and rehabilitation process. This technique is especially useful for women who have difficulty feeling their pelvic floor muscles, and it can improve symptoms such as urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction.
Our physiotherapist Katie Jeffrey is currently completing her master’s degree in Pelvic Health and Continence and can guide clients through this process and develop an individualised treatment plan for each person’s needs. She is trained with the use of real-time ultrasound as well as internal examination.
Women’s Health conditions we can help
Women’s Postpartum Physiotherapy & Pelvic Floor Assessment
Pelvic floor retraining and rehabilitation by a trained women’s health physiotherapist can be very helpful for postpartum women who may have experienced pelvic floor dysfunction as a result of pregnancy and childbirth. The increase in demands on the pelvic floor during pregnancy and delivery may result in injury or weakness to the pelvic floor, leading to symptoms such as incontinence, pain, and pelvic organ prolapse. Assessment and retraining of the pelvic floor can be used to help manage these symptoms.
A trained physiotherapist with pelvic health training can assess the strength and function of your pelvic floor muscles, and develop an individualised treatment plan to help you regain control and function. Tools such as Real Time ultrasound can be very useful in providing clients and physiotherapists with visual feedback about how well the pelvic floor muscles are working.
In addition to improving pelvic floor function, women’s health physiotherapy can also help to address other common postpartum issues such as, diastasis recti (abdominal separation), back pain, and general physical conditioning to help you return to the activities you love safely.
