Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

Pelvic health physiotherapists are specially trained to treat a range of pelvis and pelvic floor problems. If you’re struggling with incontinence, organ prolapse, back pain, pelvic pain or sciatica, our physiotherapists can help you get back on track.

 

 

A pelvic health physiotherapist can teach women how to exercise pelvic floor muscles correctly and provide support during pregnancy and post-birth, as well as help both women and men who are struggling with incontinence.

Many people can feel embarrassed asking for help when it comes to pelvic health problems or might not realise that help is available. Pelvic floor physiotherapy is very effective in treating incontinence and pain, and can make a huge difference to your quality of life, so if you’re having any problems at all, get in touch with our team on 020 7806 4010 or at physiotherapy@hje.org.uk.

How we can help

Your physiotherapist will take a detailed history and ask you questions about your general health and any concerns you might have. Some questions may be quite intimate in nature in order to get a clear and accurate picture of your current situation. You will then have a physical exam.

The treatment itself will be based around advice and exercises, some of which you’ll do during your appointment and some which you’ll need to do at home. Your treatment will generally incorporate:

  • Individual exercise programmes
  • Life style management
  • Bowel and bladder retraining
  • Pilates based exercise
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Neuromuscular electrical stimulation/feedback techniques

Make an enquiry

If you have any questions relating to treatment options or pricing information, get in touch with us by filling out one of our contact boxes or giving us a call on +44 207 806 4060.

Our Appointments Team have a dedicated and caring approach to finding you the earliest appointment possible with the best specialist.

If you are self-paying you don’t need a referral from your GP for a consultation. You can simply refer yourself* and book an appointment.

If you have health insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa Health, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation before any treatment, and in most cases you will also require a referral letter from your GP.

If you are not registered with a GP, we have an in-house private GP practice you can use. Alternatively, we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstances.

*Please note – for investigations such as X-rays and MRIs, a referral will be required. However, we may be able to arrange this for you through our on-site private GP.
