What people are saying about us

Meet our Pelvic Floor Therapist


What can I expect at my first Pelvic Floor Physio session?
At your first pelvic floor physio session, you can expect to discuss your medical history and current symptoms with your physiotherapist. They will then assess your posture, range of motion, muscle strength, and flexibility. Depending on the assessment results, they may recommend exercises or stretches to help improve your condition. Your physiotherapist will explain their treatment plan in detail and answer any questions you have.
Is an internal exam required?
An internal exam is not always required for Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy. However, if your physiotherapist suspects that an underlying medical condition may be causing your symptoms, they may recommend one. The exam involves the insertion of a gloved finger into the vagina or rectum to assess the strength and function of the pelvic floor muscles. Your comfort and privacy are of utmost importance during this examination, and it should only be done with your consent.
Will there be homework to do between sessions?
Yes, there will be homework to do between pelvic floor physio sessions. This may include exercises or stretches to help improve your condition, as well as lifestyle modifications such as avoiding certain activities that can worsen symptoms. Your physiotherapist should provide detailed instructions on how to perform the assigned exercises and give you guidance on any lifestyle modifications.
How many sessions before I start to see improvement?
The number of sessions needed before you start to see improvement from pelvic floor physio will vary depending on the severity and duration of your condition. Generally, most people begin to see results within 4-6 weeks of starting treatment. However, it is important to keep in mind that everyone responds differently, so progress may be slower or faster than expected.
