IF you have ex­pe­ri­enced pelvic floor prob­lems, the women’s health phys­io­ther­a­pists at Back In Mo­tion Health Group can help.

Blad­der, bowel and pelvic floor mus­cle con­di­tions can af­fect any­one at any time in their lives, but prob­lems are most likely to be ex­pe­ri­enced dur­ing preg­nancy, in the post­na­tal pe­riod or around the time of the menopause.

Hav­ing your pelvic floor mus­cles as­sessed by a spe­cially trained phys­io­ther­a­pist al­lows them to pre­scribe the right form of treat­ment for you.

This may be in the form of spe­cific ex­er­cises, in­volve the use of biofeed­back or in some cases man­ual ther­apy.

Treat­ment is de­pen­dent on your symp­toms and your over­all goal.

If the pelvic floor mus­cles are work­ing prop­erly, you are less likely to ex­pe­ri­ence con­di­tions such as in­con­ti­nence or symp­toms from pelvic or­gan pro­lapse.

Women’s health phys­io­ther­apy can also ad­dress is­sues with pelvic pain, scar­ring fol­low­ing child­birth and bowel dys­func­tion.
