The physiotherapists at our Nepean facility offer specialized treatments and services for pelvic floor conditions, as well as prenatal and postpartum care, with a focus on women's health.
The Importance of the Pelvic Floor
The pelvic floor is located under the uterus, bladder, and large intestine (bowel). It includes muscles, ligaments, nerves and connective tissue. It plays an essential role in the body, providing support for the bladder, genitals, uterus and anus, and helping with urine and bowel control. The pelvic floor also contains the muscles that contract during orgasm.
When the pelvic floor muscles become weakened, reduced bowel control and urine leakage can occur. For this reason, pelvic floor muscle training is very important, particularly for women after childbirth.
Although a healthy pelvic floor is integral to our health, many women (and men!) feel embarrassed to admit that they are suffering from pelvic floor dysfunction. As a result, it often goes untreated.
Silence on the subject results in a lot of unnecessary suffering – but it doesn't have to be that way!
