Physiotherapy for Pelvic Health

Physiotherapy for pelvic health is a branch of physiotherapy that focuses on treating disorders of the pelvis. The pelvis is a complex structure consisting of the hip bones, the muscles and ligaments that support it, and the organs contained within it. Various factors, including pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, and injury, can cause disorders of the pelvis. Physiotherapy for Pelvic health can help treat these disorders by improving the strength and flexibility of the muscles and ligaments that support the pelvis and by helping to improve the organs’ function.

Pelvic health physiotherapy is a safe and effective treatment option for many people. It treats various disorders, including incontinence, prolapse, pain, and sexual dysfunction. Physiotherapy for Pelvic health can also be used to prevent these disorders from developing in the first place. However, consulting with a physiotherapist is important before beginning any physiotherapy program.

The benefits of physiotherapy for pelvic health

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is an area that specifically deals with assessing and treating disorders of the pelvic floor muscles and joints. The pelvic floor muscles support the pelvic organs and span the base of the pelvis.
Pelvic floor physiotherapy can be beneficial for a variety of different conditions, including:

1. Urinary incontinence

Pelvic floor physiotherapy can be very effective in the treatment of stress incontinence. Our physiotherapist will assess the individual’s pelvic floor muscles and joints and develop a specific treatment plan to strengthen the muscles and improve the function of the pelvic floor.

2. Pelvic pain

Pelvic pain is very common, affecting up to one in four women. It can be a very debilitating condition, causing chronic pain and discomfort.
There are several different types of pelvic pain, but the most common is pelvic floor dysfunction. This dysfunction occurs when the pelvic floor muscles are too tight or weak and can lead to pain in the pelvis, lower back and legs.

Pelvic floor physiotherapy can be very effective in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. Our physiotherapist in Surrey will assess the individual’s pelvic floor muscles and joints and develop treatment plans to either relax the muscles or strengthen the muscles, depending on the individual’s needs.

3. Prolapse

Prolapse is when one or more pelvic organs, such as the uterus, bladder or rectum, drop. A weakening of the pelvic floor muscles often causes prolapse. Pelvic floor physiotherapy can be very effective in the treatment of prolapse.
