Chester Pelvic Physiotherapy
We are delighted to open our brand new service for 2020 - Chester Pelvic Physiotherapy - run by our team of specialist women's and men's health physiotherapists.
There are many problems that can be treated, improved and even resolved with specialist physiotherapy. Some of the issues that we treat are:
- Urinary urgency or frequency (needing to rush to the toilet or to go often)
- Urinary incontinence:-
- Stress urinary incontinence (accidental loss of urine with sneezing/coughing/laughing/jumping/exercise etc)
- Urgency urinary incontinence (accidental loss of urine associated with needing to go to the toilet)
- Mixed urinary incontinence (a combination of both stress and urgency urinary incontinence)
- Prolapse (a dropping of your bladder, womb, top of the vagina or bowel into the vagina)
- Bowel urgency (needing to rush to open your bowels)
- Bowel incontinence (accidental loss of faeces or wind)
- Dyspareunia (pain during sexual intercourse)
- Vulvodynia/Chronic pelvic pain syndrome (pain in and around the genitals/vagina/anus)
- Perineal pain (pain in the area between your vagina and anus, often following tears/episiotomy in childbirth or surgery)
- Pregnancy-related problems (may include pain or pelvic floor issues)
- Post-natal concerns (may include pain, abdominal separation/weakness, pelvic floor issues)
- Menopause-related problems (may include any of the above problems)
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, or if you would like a postnatal check up to assess your pelvic floor muscles and your stomach muscles, please book an appointment for an initial assessment and advice.
I have struggled with stress incontinence for many years but I realised it was getting worse and I didn’t really know what to do about it.
When the new Coactive Physio clinic opened recently I read about their new Pelvic Clinic which offered help and advice for my problem. I have now had two consultations and been given a pelvic exercise regime to follow. Within a month of starting the exercises I am really pleased that things have already improved and I am feeling more confident in myself.
