Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

As many as 1 in 3 women will experience pelvic floor issues in their lifetime, with symptoms including urinary incontinence, faecal incontinence, constipation, pelvic organ prolapse and pain. But research has shown that up to 3/4 of these women will put up with these problems for years, either because they are too embarrassed to seek help or not aware that there is effective treatment available.  This can have wide-ranging negative effects on a woman's confidence, work-life, exercise levels, sex-life, emotional well-being and overall quality of life.

Women's Health Physiotherapy for the pelvic floor has been shown to be a highly successful, clinically proven and minimally-invasive way to treat and resolve these problems.  Camilla offers a confidential, sensitive, holistic and effective approach with high success rates.  She also has close links with and works alongside other medical professionals and specialist consultants to refer to if needed.
