Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy Services

About our Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Can you believe that over 60% of women will have some pelvic floor concerns during their life?! This is huge. At FNQ Health Co. we have a special interest in women’s health and wellness, including the incredible pelvic floor.

We are passionate about prevention, education and treatment for a range of pelvic floor conditions including incontinence, prolapse, painful intercourse, prolapse and a range of other bladder and bowel dysfunctions.

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy investigates the complexity of the pelvic floor system, that separates the interior of the body from the exterior at the base of the pelvis, and its relationship with the pelvic cavity including the pelvic organs, surrounding muscles and structures.

Pregnancy and childbirth, aging, surgery, illnesses such as cancer, and hormonal imbalances are some of the more common causes of pelvic conditions which can include but aren’t limited to:

  • Bladder and bowel – increased frequency, leakage or constipation
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pre and post prostate surgery
  • Pain in the vulva
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Pre and post prostate surgery
We are passionate about prevention, education and treatment for a range of pelvic floor conditions.

What does it involve?

Your first visit involves a comprehensive initial assessment. We’ll gain a thorough understanding of your history and conduct a movement and postural assessment, and pelvic floor muscle assessment.

The pelvic floor muscle can be assessed through examination, or with the use of real-time ultrasound as indicated. Treatment consists of addressing the main dysfunctions noted on assessment. The focus can be on pelvic floor muscle isolation and awareness, strength and endurance.

There is also often the need to learn to relax the pelvic floor muscles to gain flexibility (down train the pelvic floor) and improve its function. A hands-on approach, education and home exercises are all important components of treatment. Receiving a timely, specialised service for a specific program focused on your individual goals and requirements is extremely important for the success of treatment. Our team will guide, empower and support you to create or change daily habits to help you get back to doing what you love.

As registered members of the Australian Physiotherapy and Women’s Health Training Associations, ongoing courses and training are consistently undertaken to ensure clinical practices are based on the most current research in perinatal women’s health care at FNQ Health Co.
