Pelvic Health & Women's health Physiotherapy

Pelvic health Physio addresses the issues concerned around the pelvic region. This may also include pain or injury associated with the hip, groin or low back as these areas may have an impact on Pelvic health for both men and women.

Pelvic health can become an issue during and following pregnancy. We provide women with prenatal and postnatal assessment and treatment for a number of issues that may arise as a result of carrying and delivering a baby. This can include abdominal muscle separation, pelvic organ prolapse, low back, pelvic or leg pain, incontinence or voiding issues, perineal or pelvic floor tearing and weakness of the pelvic floor or other muscles in the region. We can help to reduce the pain or other symptoms that arise and can also provide you with a treatment plan to regain strength, fitness and confidence after having a baby in a safe and supportive environment. 

ACC are now covering injuries that occur during childbirth and delivery. We can lodge a maternal birth injury with ACC on your behalf and assist in your post partum recovery.

Hormones also play a major part in Pelvic health. Peri-menopause and Menopause can trigger a variety of uncomfortable symptoms including changes in your Pelvic health. We can assist women in managing these issues and make life just that little bit easier whilst the body is going through these hormonal changes.. 

We provide internal vaginal and rectal examinations in a safe and comfortable space if and when this may be required.

Pregnancy & Postpartum Care


Many of our therapists have first-hand experience in pregnancy and all of our physiotherapists are experienced in the management of conditions that arise during and following pregnancy. This may include lumbo-pelvic issues, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome and joint and tendon stresses.

We incorporate a variety of techniques which include Pilates-based exercise, craniosacral techniques, massage, exercise and bracing.

Our physiotherapists can prescribe specific exercises that work to strengthen the deep abdominal, hip and pelvic muscle slings which are under new and increased loads through pregnancy.  Maintaining good abdominal and pelvic floor control throughout pregnancy not only helps to relieve pain associated with pregnancy but helps to maintain spinal and pelvic stability which can facilitate a faster post natal recovery.
