Assessment of Pelvic Floor Pre Pregnancy, Post Natal or General

Research shows that approximately 30% of new mums will have some pelvic organ prolapse.  Additionally research has shown about 40% of women who think they are exercising their pelvic floor muscle are actually doing these exercises incorrectly.  At its worst, this can lead to further damage or symptoms, incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse.

Many women have some prolapse but are unaware as they are “asymptomatic” – this means they do not have the regular symptoms of prolapse –  dragging, heaviness or vaginal bulge.

The pelvic floor muscles are important for women throughout the stages of life.  They are affected by pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and ageing.

Knowing how to achieve and maintain a strong pelvic floor muscle will help ensure good bladder and bowel control, reduce risk of incontinence, help towards maintaining a long and healthy sex life, prevent prolapse and help with core muscle strength

A pelvic floor muscle assessment and rehabilitation programme will provide any woman with the tools to live her best life.

We treat women of all ages and have great success with pelvic floor rehabilitation from pre pregnancy to older women into their 8th decade.  Its never too late to seek advice and treatment for pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation.
