Do you have prolapse problems?

At Glen Eira Physiotherapy we can help you! Pelvic floor muscles are often a part of the problem; in most cases they are weak and need strengthening, but they may also be poorly co-ordinated, or overactive and tight. Our pelvic floor trained physiotherapist will perform a thorough assessment, explain your condition, and then develop an appropriate treatment plan with you to help you achieve your health goals.

What does my assessment involve?

  • History & details about your bladder/bowel/prolapse problems
  • Medical, surgical, obstetric, sexual and exercise history
  • Pelvic floor muscle assessment

What might my treatment involve?

  • Individualised pelvic floor muscle training program
  • Good bladder & bowel habits
  • Bladder training & urge suppression
  • Bowel routine training
  • Defaecation training (how to empty your bowels)
  • Fluid/fibre/laxative advice
  • Lifestyle & exercise advice
