Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy is a highly specialised area of care. It considers all the structures of the pelvis (women, men and children) and how they relate together as well as a part of the whole person.

We often don’t know anything about our Pelvic Floor until it is put under stress and perhaps causes urinary incontinence or prolapse symptoms, or for the blokes when the prostate causes problems with doing a wee, or when deep pain occurs in the pelvis for seemingly no reason.

So if this has been you, don’t be embarrassed, or alarmed you’re not alone. So let’s start learning.

The roles of the Pelvic floor muscles include:

  • Supporting the Pelvic organs (Bladder, Rectum and Uterus in women).

  • Maintaining urinary, faecal and flatus continence.

  • Allowing effective urination and defecation.

  • Aiding in sexual arousal

  • Assisting in core control (working with your abdominals, back muscles and breathing)

What causes problems with the pelvic floor?

There are a number of reasons why problems can develop in the pelvic floor. These may include (but are not limited to):

  • Childbirth

  • Pregnancy

  • Bladder and Bowel issues, especially constipation and straining.

  • Incorrect exercising (unfortunately!)

  • Enlarged prostate (men only)

  • Chronic respiratory issues and coughing

  • Surgery, especially prostate surgery, urogynaecological surgery, gynecological surgery and bowel surgery.

  • Weight gain through the tummy

  • Hormonal changes

  • Endometriosis

  • Life stress

  • Interstitial Cystitis

What sort of pelvic floor problems can occur?

Any combination of these issues (above) can result in a range of pelvic health issues such as;

  • Incontinence – bladder and or bowel

  • General weakness or the pelvic floor

  • Prolapse – a heaviness or dragging through the pelvis

  • Pelvic pain – pain anywhere in the pelvis

  • Poor bladder/ bowel emptying

  • Sexual dysfunction

Arthritis

The improvement in foot movement and the cushioning and support that orthotics provide can help to offload other joints.

This can make a big difference if you are struggling with knee or hip arthritis, making walking easier and less painful.

Other Common Pelvic Floor Problems We See at Vital Core

Childhood bedwetting – from the age of 7, most children should be dry at night. With thorough questioning, we can determine just what the best course of action to take for your child.

Treatment options include:

  • Day time fluid management

  • Day time bladder and bowel habit training

  • Bladder awareness training

  • Nighttime drones training program

  • Referral to a GP for further medical advice

Prolapse is a condition where an internal organ (usually bladder, uterus or bowel) are dropping down into the vagina. It is a common condition in women particularly after having children or after menopause. We can help to reduce symptoms, prevent progression and prevent or delay surgery.

Common ways we do this are:

  • Pelvic Floor Muscle training

  • Pessary supply, fitting and management. Pessaries are flexible silicon devices inserted into the vagina to support a prolapse. Pessaries were once reserved for the very old and frail or those who had not yet completed their child bearing. Today we can use them as an alternative to surgery. They are simple to self manage and with the right education and management are extremely safe for most women.

  • Lifestyle advice. Certain activities will put more pressure down on a prolapse. Once you understand this you can decrease symptoms.

  • General exercise advice. Making other muscles stronger can take the strain away from a prolapse.

Persistent Pelvic Pain – is extremely common yet can be extremely debilitating for both women and men throughout the lifespan. Persistent pain means it just isn’t settling like it should.

There are many possible reasons why this may be happening, and it is often quite complex to create the plan required for resolution.
