What is pelvic health physiotherapy?
Pelvic health physiotherapy involves treatment for women and men with pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. For women this includes those with bladder and bowel problems, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction, pregnancy and postnatal care, and postoperative rehabilitation. For men, we are able to help with bladder and bowel problems, pelvic pain, post prostatectomy rehabilitation and erectile dysfunction.
What does pelvic floor treatment involve?
There will also be advice on lifestyle modifications to help protect your pelvic floor, including information on appropriate pelvic floor safe exercise. We have a range of biofeedback, TENS and electrical stimulation equipment available for use if required.
We are also highly experienced in the treatment of pelvic pain, and can help you with pain education and self-management strategies.

– Screening for symptoms
– Physical distancing
– Infection prevention measures

Where can I park?
There is plenty of parking around us – most of our patients are able to find a park on the street outside. There are also a number of carparks nearby, including Taranaki St Parking (Hope Gibbons building), Te Papa carpark and Reading Wakefield.
We are also very close to many major bus routes – we are located near the corner of Taranaki St and Courtenay Pl.
Can I bring my children?
What should I wear?
How long is the appointment?
The follow-up appointments are half an hour. (Occasionally we may recommend a one-off one-hour follow-up session if we think it would be more beneficial for you)
How many sessions will I need?
It is our goal to teach you strategies for self-management, so that you are not reliant on coming in to us every week for treatment.
