What is pelvic floor Physiotherapy?
Active pelvic floor muscles are very important to men and women throughout life. Poorly controlled muscles can lead to prolapse and loss of bladder or bowel control.
We understand this can be a private and sensitive matter for some. Our consult room is private and reception staff are very discreet and won’t ask you any sensitive questions.
