Services

Individual consultation

An initial consultation takes up to 60 minutes:
It will involve a detailed assessment of your presenting complaint, including relevant past medical history, medications and physical / social activities. A physical assessment may involve examining the abdomen, spine, pelvis, hip joints and pelvic floor. At the conclusion of the assessment, an explanation of the findings will be given and a management programme will be discussed which meets your goals and expectations. This will include education about your pelvic health issue, application of physiotherapy treatments and a home programme. The home programme is very important, and often will determine whether you will achieve the results you want. Follow up appointments take up to 30-45 minutes: The numbers of treatment sessions vary depending on the presenting complaint but often only 3-4 sessions spread over several months is all that is required. In some cases a referral to another health professional may be recommended such as a gynaecologist, urologist, colorectal surgeon, dietician, psychologist or counsellor. This will be discussed with you and referral made with your consent.
