Pelvic floor rehabilitation aims to strengthen and restore the function of the perineal muscle group. This group of muscles supports the pelvic organs such as the bladder, uterus and rectum. Rehabilitation of the perineum plays an essential role in preventing and treating problems associated with urinary and faecal incontinence, as well as recovery after childbirth.

Using appropriate re-education techniques and advice on good postural and behavioural practices, the physiotherapist helps patients to restore muscle tone and reduce symptoms of weakening of the pelvic floor.

When should pelvic floor rehabilitation be considered?

  • After childbirth

  • Urinary and/or faecal incontinence

  • Following pelvic surgery

  • Pelvic pain

  • Prevention of relaxation of the perineum
