Many women have not received any education or information regarding pelvic floor anatomy or function. Even those who have had a baby themselves already!
As Physiotherapist’s that work in the area of Women’s health, it is our job to educate women on and create awareness about pelvic health.
But how do you know when you have pelvic floor dysfunction and should come to see a Physiotherapist for an assessment, diagnosis and treatment plan?
At Sydney Women’s Physiotherapy we have put together a checklist for you to read over. If you answer yes to one or more of these statements, we recommend that you give our friendly staff a call for more information and if required to book in with our staff!
