  • Incontinence and pelvic floor physiotherapy;
  • The stats about incontinence make us pretty sad: approximately 3.4 million women are living in the Australian community with incontinence, and one in every three women who has ever had a baby will suffer from incontinence (wet themselves).
  • And the worst thing is, so many of them will suffer in silence, and don’t feel able to do anything about it. Incontinence can lead to embarrassment, avoidance of activities and poor quality of life. The good news is that there is help available!
  • We cover a range of pelvic floor concerns for women of all ages including:
  • Any form of involuntary bladder or bowel leakage no matter how small.
  • Having to rush to get to the toilet in time.
  • Constipation or difficulty opening your bowels.
  • Any feelings of dragging or heaviness sensations in the pelvis, or a noticed bulge in the vagina (prolapse).
  • Pelvic floor muscles strengthening in preparation and for recovery from gynaecological surgery
  • Physiotherapy intervention is the best first step for the treatment of incontinence.
  • The pelvic floor muscles need to be properly assessed by a professional with specific training in pelvic floor assessment in order to ensure you are doing the exercises correctly. A large percentage of people do not, and if pelvic floor exercises are done incorrectly, incontinence can even be made worse. Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialised area of physiotherapy which requires further post graduate training to be able to conduct assessments and treatment.
  • Our service provides the latest technology and equipment for your pelvic floor assessment. We use real time ultrasound and pressure biofeedback to give you an accurate assessment and treatment for your pelvic floor muscles.
  • Talk to us today for an assessment and friendly, confidential treatment.
  • You do not need a referral to come to us, but you can bring a Doctor’s referral if you have one.
  • Lymphoedema Management;Lymphoedema is the accumulation of excessive fluid resulting in swelling of one or more regions of the body, usually affecting the limbs. It is a common side effect following cancer treatment when part of the lymphatic system (lymph nodes) need to be removed. It may occur within months of the damage, or can take years to appear.
  • Lymphoedema cannot be cured, but it can be managed. Early intervention is recommended.
  • Lymphoedema is another specialised area where physiotherapists must complete post graduate training.
  • Pelvic organ Prolapse;
  • Approximately 75% of women develop some degree of pelvic organ prolapse (where the bladder, uterus or bowel descend into the vagina) during their lifetime. 1 in 3 will have prolapse either to the level of, or beyond, their vaginal entrance.
  • There is a risk of developing a prolapse if your pelvic floor muscles are weak, especially if you have: had a baby, any condition where you are subjected to bouts of chronic coughing, chronic constipation, repetitive heavy lifting or high impact exercise.
  • If you are feeling any heaviness, dragging or a bulge in your vagina you should seek help.
  • Early intervention may eliminate the need for surgery.
  • Our service also offers fitting of vaginal support pessaries for the treatment of prolapse, a viable conservative treatment option. In Canada, it is now recommended that pessaries should be considered as a first line conservative treatment option for all women presenting with prolapse and/or stress urinary incontinence. (Technical update on pessary use. Journal of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists Canada, 2013. Vol 35(7), 664-674.)
