Although often a forgotten or ignored area, the pelvic floor is crucial for posture, bladder control and sexual satisfaction. Problems can result from weak, damaged or overactive pelvic floor muscles. Treatment may include exercises, biofeedback or muscle stimulation, postural advice, core stability and manual techniques. The aim is to improve your pelvic floor to cure, or greatly reduce symptoms. This is done by improving muscle function, not just in isolation but so the pelvic floor works as it should during your daily functional activities. Pelvic floor or bladder problems are often accepted as ‘a woman’s lot’ or the natural consequence of childbirth. Women are frequently too embarrassed to seek advice or treatment. Research shows that, in many cases, physiotherapy can cure or dramatically improve pelvic floor problems. It is the recommended first line treatment for incontinence.
