Pelvic health Osteopathy involves the treatment and management of a range of pelvic health and pelvic floor related conditions.
Pelvic health complaints are very common in all populations. It is suspected that 50% of people who have given birth will have some degree of prolapse and 51% of women, 14% of men and 28% of elite athletes experience urinary incontinence at some point in their life and over 50% of pregnant women experience low back pain.
Although these symptoms are very common, they are not considered normal and can significantly impact on a person’s quality of life. Improvement of these conditions is available, and we are here to help.
Osteopaths like to consider the body as one unit and cannot ignore mechanical problems elsewhere that may be contributing to your pain. This principle is no exception when treating the pelvic floor. We assess not only the pelvic floor directly, but also look at whole body influences including, posture, hormones, lifestyle factors, diet, exercise, and biomechanical changes.
Dr Kira Nee may utilise both internal and external techniques to assess and treat the pelvic floor. As well as bladder retraining techniques, tools to connect to your pelvic floor, pelvic floor muscle training and lifestyle modifications and advice.
Our Pelvic Health Osteopath Dr. Kira Nee has completed further study in pelvic health and has a wealth of knowledge on the treatment and management of pelvic health conditions.
We understand that you may be apprehensive prior to your pelvic health appointment and aim to provide a treatment that is caring and sensitive to your concerns. We strive to create a comfortable environment where you feel safe to have a judgment free conversation and express your health goals.
If you are suffering from any signs or symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction it is a great time to consider booking an appointment.
