Pelvic Floor Services
Pelvic floor issues can happen to anyone regardless of gender or age age and appear for a number of reasons: hormonal changes such as during pregnancy or at the time of menopause, as a result of labour but also after prostate surgery. These can result in a number of symptoms which can include life-disruptive discomfort, physical pain and even severe emotional distress.
A simple evaluation by a qualified physiotherapist can determine whether there is a pelvic floor issue and how best to address is. In many cases, treatment is really simple and can make the symptoms disappear altogether.

Only Provider of Computerised Biofeedback

With biofeedback you can see what your muscles are doing on a computer screen.
This is especially helpful with the pelvic floor, since it is a muscle that doesn’t move any limb and is therefore difficult to “find” and objectively determine its strength.
Biofeedback shows if the pelvic floor is working correctly and can measure the strength of the contractions. The progress of strengthening is measured objectively and accurately.
Research shows that using biofeedback significantly improves treatment outcome.
