ABOUT THE SERVICES
A service for Continence, Women’s, Men’s Health Physiotherapy
Peninsula pelvic floor physiotherapy was started in 2010 and continues today in Frankston and Dromana providing a service for men and women in Frankston and surrounds and across the Mornington Peninsula.
It is a service which offers help for a wide range of problems relating to the pelvic floor and pelvic region: Many people have no idea that they can find help for a wide range of problems which, by their nature, can be embarrassing to talk about. When you come to see us, you will be treated with complete empathy, understanding and most importantly, experience. The following lists some of the problems we can help you with:
stress urinary incontinence, urge urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, urinary frequency, nocturia (going to the toilet at night), pelvic organ prolapse, constipation, faecal incontinence, obstructed defecation, male chronic pelvic pain (e.g. prostatitis), female chronic pelvic pain (e.g. vulvodynia, vaginismus, bladder pain syndrome), pudendal nerve neuralgia, pregnancy related problems, pre and post surgery in women (hysterectomy or prolapse repair) and pre and post surgery in men (prostatectomy, TURP, ).
