Our Women’s Health pelvic floor assessment is supported by research that strongly shows pelvic floor exercise programs are only effective when prescribed by a specifically trained Women’s Health and Continence Physiotherapist, rather than following information from a brochure or online.

In our Women’s Health assessment we utilise the latest imaging technology through assessing you pelvic floor function, muscle bulk, bladder function and prolapse suing 3D real-time Ultrasound.

A specialised pelvic floor assessment also ensures a personalised pelvic floor health program that is correct in technique, corrective of symptoms and will incorporate the latest, evidenced biofeedback techniques, to help you to contract your pelvic floor more easily and stronger and get results quicker!

 

 

Women’s health related pelvic surgery requires both adequate preparation and effective recovery.

The Women’s Health professional advice from the Gold Coast Women’s Health & Wellbeing Physiotherapy service ensures you have a suitable pre-operative assessment, pelvic floor strength, function and awareness prior to surgery, understanding about surgical outcomes and post-operative care.

The Gold Coast Women’s Health & Wellbeing service ensures that you have the support and care needed during your recovery, achieve the best possible outcomes for your pelvic health and pelvic floor and enables you to feel confident and ready to return to your normal level of activity and daily living.
