How we can help
To best help you, we will need to take a detailed history regarding your pelvic floor function. This will include bladder and bowel habits, sexual background and obstetric history. In some cases we may need to do an internal examination that, with your consent, will help us assess the true level of function of your pelvic floor. The examination helps us understand your ability to achieve a contraction, identify if the pelvic floor is weak or overactive and whether you have the coordination to contract when you cough, sneeze or laugh. We can also assess whether any other pelvic health professionals should be consulted.
All of this is to help us create a specific program for you. There is no one size fits all approach and everything we do will be tailored towards helping you achieve your own specific goals.
