The pelvic floor muscles form a 'sling' to support the organs inside the pelvis—bladder, bowel (colon), uterus. Proper function of these muscles can be disrupted by surgery, heavy lifting, being overweight, childbirth, constipation or menopause, affecting bladder and bowel control, leading to incontinence (leakage) or prolapse. Physiotherapists are experts in muscle function, tone, and strength, and therefore have the expertise to help with these and many other pelvic floor conditions.
Vestibular rehabilitation is concerned with the treatment or a range of conditions that affect the inner ear and your sense of balance, dizziness and nausea. A simple assessment could determine if physiotherapy is suitable in treating your type of vestibular issue. For the majority of cases one or two sessions can significantly reduce symptoms or eliminate them altogether.
