Pelvic Floor

We are open and available for in-practice and telehealth appointments.

At Fitwise Physiotherapy we understand that pelvic floor problems can interrupt your ability to enjoy a full active life. Fitwise Physiotherapists ensure private and respectful management of pelvic floor dysfunction for both men and women.  

A full assessment will be done by one of our post graduate trained physiotherapists to determine your individual pelvic floor requirements.  A pelvic floor physiotherapy management plan will be provided to achieve your individual goals in agreed time frames.

Take our Pelvic Floor quiz below to see if you may have a pelvic floor problem and require a pelvic floor physio.
