Continence and Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
Pre-natal care: Exercise safely during your pregnancy months!
We help to prepare your body for labour by assessing your pelvic floor muscles and prescribing customised exercises to keep these muscles strong. We provide antenatal classes that help to manage a range of pregnancy issues, such as back and pelvic pain, bladder problems, and more.
Post-natal care: Understand your Self-care in the early months after birth
Your physiotherapist performs a 6-week postnatal check that includes identifying abdominal muscle separation, mastitis, blocked ducts, bladder or bowel issues, pelvic pain or sexual dysfunction. We provide exercises that help prepare you for returning to work, as well as Mums & Bubs exercise classes.
Abdominal muscle separation
Separation of the abdominal walls is quite common in pregnancy. Diagnosis is made by physical examination and treatment involves a customised exercise program, as well as exercises and prescription of support garments as required.
If your physiotherapist diagnoses mastitis or blocked ducts, treatment consists of therapeutic ultrasound which help reduce swelling by increasing blood flow and improving lymphatic drainage. Reducing the pressure in your breasts also helps to decrease the pain associated with mastitis and blocked ducts.
For both men and women, bladder issues can include urgency, frequency, waking at night to urinate (nocturia), incomplete emptying or an overactive bladder; men may also suffer from post-micturition dribble. Customised pelvic floor exercises can help to manage or treat all of these problems.
Constipation, diarrhoea or problems emptying the bowel can be experienced by both men and women. A need to urgently rush to the toilet to empty your bowels, return quickly to the toilet or faecal soiling are all problems that can be managed and improved by a personalised pelvic floor muscle exercise program.
Women often experience pelvic pain due to trauma following childbirth, whilst for men it can be their prostrate. Treatment can involve further testing to establish the direct cause of your pelvic pain, as well as a customised pelvic floor exercise plan that’s tailored to your specific needs.
Overactive pelvic floor
For infants and children, we offer specialised services addressing various developmental needs. From early interventions for torticollis and plagiocephaly to assisting older children with coordination difficulties, growing pains, and more, our Paediatric Physiotherapists provide expert care.
At WA Health Group Studio, we believe in a family-centric approach, empowering parents and caregivers to actively participate in their child's therapy. We offer education, resources, and unwavering support to facilitate this journey.

Physiotherapy treatments involve an exercise prescription that allows you to exercise safely. Exercise has been shown to hasten recovery following both injuries and surgery and can be a crucial part of your rehabilitation. Our experienced physiotherapists develop an exercise prescription that is perfectly tailored to your needs.
Pelvic health issues: Women’s health is for the whole of you
We can also help if you have any issues relating to:
Stress Urinary Incontinence
Overactive Bladder Syndrome
Bladder or Bowel Urgency Incontinence
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Post surgery dysfunction
Cancer treatment (prostate and gynaecological cancers)
For men, physiotherapy can help prevent and manage urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction and bladder or bowel urgency following prostrate surgery for cancer. For women, physiotherapy can help manage urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, prolapse or bowel problems following gynaecological surgery for cancer.
Erectile dysfunction in men and painful intercourse in women are both forms of sexual dysfunction that can be treated by your physiotherapist. Men often respond well to physiotherapy exercises that help to tighten and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and women to exercises that relax and release these muscles.
Don’t let any of these problems cramp your style!
