Improving Pelvic Floor Health Through Expert Care
Pelvic health physiotherapy is a specialised branch of physiotherapy focused on the assessment and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction in both men and women. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles, ligaments and connective tissue that support the pelvic organs including the bladder, uterus and rectum. Pelvic floor dysfunction can lead to issues such as incontinence and sexual dysfunction, and greatly impact quality of life. Our pelvic health physiotherapist, Sophie, has many years’ experience working with both men and women to improve their pelvic health and overall wellbeing.

Our team are trained in specialised therapy to help both men and women manage and improve pelvic floor dysfunction.
