This includes problems with all of the situations above involving urinary and faecal incontinence, problems with control of flow of urine, bowels or wind and incomplete emptying.
You are in excellent hands with Lisa Vernon, our highly qualified Women’s Health Physio.
Would you like to feel:
Ring us on (08) 7282 0871 or book online to make a time to speak with Lisa about women’t\s health physio can help you achieve these goals.
Lisa uses sensitive and tactful questioning to comfortably find out the exact nature of your problems and how disruptive they are currently in your life.
She will take a detailed history including finding out about your relevant medical history, bladder and bowel function, fluid intake, diet, exercise and pelvic floor health.
She also uses questionnaires and bladder and bowel diaries as useful tools in getting detailed information about your situation, and to provide a baseline to measure improvement.
To assess your pelvic floor, we use a non-invasive method using Real Time Ultrasound Imaging applied via your abdominal wall.
This produces a picture of your pelvic floor muscles and a visualisation of the effect that contraction has on the bladder.
This acts as real time feedback so that you can see your muscle activity as it happens.
Naturally, you need to know what is wrong and what you can expect from women’s pelvic health physio treatment.
We will make it easy for you to understand the real nature of the problem.
Lisa will develop an individualised plan with you about the most effective way to help your problem.
By developing this plan with you, she will make sure that it is realistic for you and your lifestyle.
It also makes sure that it meets your needs and expectations.
Lifestyle advice and pelvic floor muscle training is the first line management of pelvic floor dysfunction.
The pelvic muscle retraining is done using the trans-abdominal ultrasound to give real time feedback about what you are doing.
There are other external ways of assessing muscle activity that can be employed if needed, including external surface EMG feedback.
REMEMBER: It Is Never Too Late To Start Improving Your Pelvic Floor Muscles!
