Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapists help you to get back on track.

Support for continence, pelvic floor rehabilitation and pelvic pain

A pelvic floor physiotherapist is a physiotherapist who has completed further training in continence and pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation. They have extensive experience in treating both men and women with incontinence, bladder or bowel problems and pelvic pain. Pelvic floor physiotherapists use a variety of treatment techniques, including training the pelvic floor muscles, education and lifestyle advice.

A GP referral is not needed to see a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist, however, Medicare Rebates are available with a GP referral with an EPC Care Plan for Physiotherapy. Only minimal gap fees apply if an appropriate GP care plan is in place.
