Pelvic floor dysfunction can arise from pregnancy, childbirth, increasing age, obesity, menopause, surgery or incorrect exercising techniques. The majority of these cases can be corrected with appropriate assessment and exercises. At Movement Improvement, Women’s Health assessments evaluate your pelvic floor function and provide you with an exercise program to meet your specific requirements.
Pregnancy & Post Natal Assessment
These are individual assessments and include treatment and exercise programming to help relieve pain, improve diastasis and pelvic floor muscle recovery both during pregnancy and after delivery or post natally.
Bladder problems are a common side effect of prostate surgery. It is strongly recommended that your pelvic floor is assessed and appropriate exercises given pre & post operative to ensure maximal recovery.
Common symptoms such as incontinence of faeces, wind, constipation and difficulty emptying can be addressed with the correct muscular function.
