Urinary Incontinence

Whether you can no longer sneeze without leaking or you're always busting for the loo, there is plenty that Anna can offer to help get you dry. The two most common types of urinary incontinence are: Stress Urinary Incontinence , which is the leakage of urine with forceful activities such as coughing, sneezing and running and Overactive Bladder Syndrome, which is a cluster of symptoms that can include going to the toilet frequently during the day and/or night, and a busting urge to get to the toilet which can cause you to leak before getting to the toilet in time.

Most people can achieve an over 80% improvement in their bladder symptoms with physiotherapy alone.

So if you're tired of your bladder controlling your life, make an appointment today.

Obstructed Defecation & Bowel Issues

Have you lost that satisfied feeling of passing a complete bowel motion easily? Obstructed defecation is a condition which makes it difficult to pass even a soft bowel motion and often results in incomplete emptying of the bowels which in turn can cause a myriad of troublesome symptoms. Left untreated obstructed defecation can lead to physical damage to pelvic structures. The good news is, it often responds really positively to pelvic floor physiotherapy, so get in touch to make an appointment today.

Other bowel issues which respond well to pelvic floor physiotherapy include faecal and flatus (wind) incontinence and constipation.

With 'normal' it doesn't matter how often you pass a bowel motion.

If it is soft and easy to pass then it's 'normal'.

If it's not 'normal' then get in touch today.

Pregnancy and Postnatal Care

Children are the meaning of life, but producing them takes a big toll on our bodies. Pregnancy physiotherapy care can include the measurement and provision of compression garments for varicose veins, pelvic congestion and vulvar varicosities, education and advice for a pelvic floor friendly birth and management of incontinence and prolapse symptoms.

Postnatal physiotherapy includes ongoing care of all of the above as well as management of diastasis recti abdominis (separated tummy muscles), a pre-running assessment and advice on returning to exercise safely.

Bladder and bowel problems are common after having children,

but they're not normal.

Pelvic Pain

Endometriosis? Vaginismus? Vulvodynia? Vestibulodynia? These are some big words of some very painful conditions, put simply pelvic pain and/or pain with sex. While living with these conditions can be debilitating at times, there is good news, more often than not these conditions respond really well to pelvic floor physiotherapy.

If you've tried everything else, and nothing has worked, 

please try one more thing 

and make it pelvic floor physiotherapy.

Better yet, try physiotherapy before trying everything else.

For the Men

Men have pelvic floor muscles too, and they respond really well to pelvic floor physiotherapy. Common areas of men's health treated with physiotherapy include chronic pelvic pain, erectile dysfunction and prostate cancer rehabilitation.

Often men with pelvic pain have seen everyone and tried everything, usually to no avail, and life gets pretty miserable living with pelvic pain. You don't have to put up with it anymore, physiotherapy can have you living a pain free life, please call today.

Physiotherapy for prostate cancer rehabilitation ideally involves a pre-surgical appointment and then ongoing follow-up after surgery for the management of urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction. You've done the hard part and survived cancer, now let us help you get your quality of life back.

Just one physiotherapy appointment prior to prostate surgery can reduce the time it takes you to become dry after surgery from 12 months down to 3 months!
