Pelvic Health Assessment prior to starting training

The team running the Kapiti Women’s Triathlon are keen to encourage participation in the event, including for newcomers or people who have had a baby / babies, as well as older women.

We’re happy to see anyone who is new to exercise, or has symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction, as well as those who just want a check-up to ensure they don’t develop problems.


What are the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction?

If you are experiencing any of the following, the team at Pelvic Health Physiotherapy will be able to help you.

  • leakage of urine – eg with cough, sneeze, run, jump
  • having to rush to get to the toilet
  • a sense of heaviness or bulging around the vaginal entrance or inside (symptoms of prolapse)
  • difficulty emptying the bladder or bowel
  • pelvic or sexual pain

Who is at risk?

There are many risk factors for pelvic floor dysfunction. In terms of exercise, we are keen to make sure everyone feels safe to do what they want to without symptoms such as leakage or prolapse. Come and see us if you are having issues. And if you’re not having problems at the moment, we’re happy to see you for a check of your pelvic floor, abs and general strength / flexibility, and provide appropriate treatment and exercises to help prevent issues from developing.

Particular risk factors relating to increased exercise:

  • new to exercise
  • not had pelvic floor rehab since birth of a baby
  • entering perimenopause or menopause years
