French Pelvic Floor  Rehabilitation and Pelvic floor assessment  in London

We are aware that pelvic floor re-education is a very intimate issue and could feel a little embarrassing for many. That is why our physiotherapists are highly trained female therapist with years of specialisation in pelvic floor rehabilitation and incontinence treatment.

Our Pelvic floor rehabilitation in London starts with a pelvic floor assessment

Every pelvic floor re-education starts with a check up of the strength of your perineum and of your level of awareness of it. Following the check up, the physiotherapist will determine a personalised treatment based on your medical background, the course of your pregnancy and the method of childbirth as well as on your level of awareness of your muscles. Finally she will show you the exercises that you will do between the sessions in order to increase the benefits of the treatment.

When can i do my Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation?

There is growing support in favour of beginning to exercise before the childbirth (ante natal). Your awareness of this muscle will facilitate the labour.
After childbirth (post natal) you have to wait at least six to eight weeks before starting any re-education or sports. It is very important to not start any abdominal re-education with a weak pelvic-floor because it would increase the stretch of the perineum and increase such symptoms as incontinence (see abdominal re-education section). After these six- eight weeks you may start your pelvic floor re-education whenever you fell ready for it.
If you gave birth a few years ago, did not do any rehabilitation and that you start feeling the consequences of it (incontinence, prolapse, lost of sexual sensation) no worries, it is never too late to start strengthening the perineum and find a normal micturition.
Pelvic floor rehabilitation is effective at all ages whether it is for young mothers, elderly as well as women without children but who suffer from those symptoms.

Why do I need Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation?

While giving birth is the most wonderful time in a women’s life, the nine months of pregnancy and the labour have a big impact on your pelvic-floor. The baby’s weight puts pressure on it, the increase of hormones (oestrogen and relaxin) and finally the childbirth will stretch the muscles.  The combination of these factors will lead to the loss of tonus and the muscles will not be able to play their role as before. This is unavoidable and can bring serious consequences if left untreated (incontinence, prolapsed womb, back pain, reduced sexual sensation). But although it is unavoidable, it is not irreversible. Pelvic-floor re-education will allow you to regain the strength and the tonus of your muscles and therefore avoid suffering these complications in the future.
Perineum is certainly one of the most, if not the most important muscle for a woman. It plays a very important role: it is the muscle holding the womb, the bladder, and its’ tonus allows continence by closing the sphincters. And finally, it is the base for a good back health. A stretched perineum will not be able to maintain all those functions and will as well as normal sexual sensation.
