Healthy and strong pelvic floor muscles are critical for the optimal function of the bladder, bowel, pelvis and lower back in women of all ages. Our women’s health physiotherapists in Brisbane are trained in the assessment and treatment of the pelvic floor muscles and an individualised treatment plan is created for each patient. 

Electrical stimulation of very weak muscles is sometimes needed. North West Physiotherapy has the Pericalm Stimulator Unit available for hire or purchase to aid in muscle strengthening.

Women’s health physiotherapy concentrates on female pelvic floor muscles for women pre-natal, post-natal & during menopause. Many women experience incontinence at some time in their life but treatment can make a significant difference.
