Physiotherapy : Pelvic Health

The pelvic floor is a hammock of muscles, tendons and ligaments that support the pelvic organs such as the bladder and uterus and is involved in controlling continence and the maintenance of a healthy sex life. Women more commonly have pelvic floor dysfunction due to childbirth trauma and menopausal hormone changes, but dysfunction also occurs in men, often due to prostate conditions. Like any other area in the body, some of the muscles may be tight and need to soften and lengthen, and others may be weak and require strengthening. Synergy's Pelvic Health Program takes an integrated interdisciplinary approach towards comprehensive rehabilitation of pelvic floor dysfunction.
