Pelvic Floor Muscle Assessment in Maroondah

Did you know that around 40% of women activate incorrect muscles when attempting a pelvic floor squeeze?  Every woman who has ever had a baby should know how to properly contract her pelvic floor muscles. Research shows us that during pregnancy your pelvic floor muscles weaken due to the weight of your baby resting on the pelvic floor. We can show you how to use these muscles correctly.

Pelvic floor muscles form a sling from the coccyx to the pubic bone. They are responsible for control of the bladder and bowel, for the pleasurable sensations we have when making love, for preventing vaginal prolapse and also for balancing our pelvis throughout the day.

Pelvic floor muscle dysfunction can lead to:

●  Incontinence of the bladder/bowel
●  Dysfunction of the bladder and bowel
●  Pelvic organ prolapse
●  Painful intercourse
●  Decreased feeling when making love
●  Poor core strength and balance

Our highly qualified caring clinicians can help:

●  In-depth assessment of symptoms and pelvic floor
●  Individualised pelvic floor muscle exercise programme
●  Progression of your pelvic floor exercise programme as your muscles strengthen
●  Lifestyle modifications
●  Healthy exercise options

Over time we have built a network of like minded but diverse professionals to work together and serve your individual needs in the Maroondah area.
