Pre & Post-Natal

Pelvic Floor Physio

At 18 Physio, our physiotherapist has post-graduate training in treating pelvic floor dysfunctions. We understand that this area of physiotherapy can be very personal and sensitive to discuss, and this is always managed with care and empathy. The assessment will assess your muscular function to tailor treatment, advice and a program to your individual needs.

We commonly treat:

  • Stress urinary incontinence (leakage with activity).
  • Bladder symptoms such as urgency, frequency and urge incontinence (leakage associated with an uncontrollable urge).
  • Difficulties emptying your bladder; such as hesitancy, dribbling afterwards and incomplete emptying.
  • Pelvic pain.
  • Painful sex.
  • Prolapse (feeling of a vaginal heaviness or bulge due to organ descent).
  • Bowel dysfunction; such as difficulty emptying and fecal incontinence.
