1 in 3 women experience urinary incontinence during their lifetime
Pelvic organ/vaginal prolapse is experienced in up to 50% of women who have had children
In women who have not children – up to 60% will have some significant bladder/bowel or pain symptoms
Approximately 20% of 18-50 year old women will complain of chronic pelvic pain
All women will at some point go through the menopause.
Many women tolerate these problems for years thinking they are a normal part of being a woman. Embarrassment often prevents women seeking help and many women are unaware that there are effective treatments available.
It’s worth working with a physiotherapist and persevering with your programme – pelvic floor muscle physiotherapy helps to cure or improve the symptoms of weak pelvic floor muscles for over 70% of women.
Conditions we can help with
Our specialist Physiotherapist can help you with a range of conditions including:
pregnancy-related musculoskeletal problems, such as back pain, pelvic pain, sciatica or carpal tunnel syndrome
pelvic floor dysfunction

Following pregnancy, many women are concerned about aches or pains and have questions about how they can safely return to sport without any risk to their pelvic floor. Our Physiotherapist can offer you a postnatal body check, including postural, abdominal and pelvic floor assessment, which will give you back confidence in your body following the birth of your child.
