Pelvic Health Physio

Getting You Moving


  • Are you having to think about your bladder and bowel too often?
  • Do you have to think about where the loos are?
  • Are you watching your fluids and trying not to drink too much – just in case?
  • Does your pelvic floor feel it could do with some help to keep some things in and let other things out?
  • Is sex not quite as straightforward as it should be?
  • Are you in pain in your pelvic area?

Bladder and bowel problems can be about leaking and not holding on, or about not emptying well. These difficult problems can affect men and women – and NO – it isn’t something that you should expect with ageing and put up with.
Pelvic floor problems can cause anxiety, pain, physical limitations and embarrassment.

Women’s Health conditions:

  • Common bladder problems are leakage with activity or coughing (stress incontinence) or urge (urge incontinence), going too often (frequency) in the day and night or not emptying properly.
  • Vaginal prolapse (a feeling of something coming down or vaginal discomfort) is very common and can be very bothersome and sore
    Common bowel problems include leaking, staining, losing wind or struggling to empty and straining too much
  • Pain – can be general or specific to vaginal, clitoral, anal - and may come and go


Men’s Health conditions:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Prostate related bladder problems - that might be before or after surgical treatment
  • Bowel problems – infrequent, hard to pass or too soft and hard to keep in
  • Pain – pelvic, penile or anal

It is not uncommon for men and women to avoid getting help for these problems because of embarrassment or not knowing that there are things that can be done.

A pelvic floor health assessment can be the start of understanding how your body works, the cause of your symptoms and learning what you can do to help.


Kate Lough has worked in the pelvic health field for 25 years. After seeing a pelvic health physiotherapists clients often say “I wish I’d known this years ago, and got help so much earlier.” You can read more about Kate on her bio page.


An initial pelvic health appointment lasts for an hour and gives plenty of time to discuss all aspects of what might be a problem for you. Sometimes there can be a lot to learn and Kate suggests that a follow up session helps support you with any changes or treatment suggestions that might be made.
