Sydney Pelvic Clinic
Sydney Pelvic Clinic was established to provide a specialised service for men & women suffering with pelvic dysfunction. At AJ Physio we were seeing more and more local, interstate and international patients with various pelvic issues. Many of these people had suffered for a long time and were frustrated that it had taken them so long to find us, and finally a solution to their issue. We felt a deep need to be more obvious & easy to find for people suffering with these symptoms.
Our team of committed, passionate and highly-trained physiotherapists provide a uniquely integrated, evidence-based approach to managing and improving the pelvic health of men and women. We will work with you to develop an individualised management plan to achieve your goals. Whether that be no leaking with running, pain free sex or optimal preparation for prostrate or prolapse surgery.
Our service includes:
Complete pelvic assessment: after talking through your story, we will conduct a full physical assessment of your pelvis. We may use Real Time Ultrasound to see your bladder and pelvic floor muscles (PFM).
Diagnosis and explanation of your pelvic issue: this is an integral part of your management. Understanding your particular pelvic issue will start the healing process and help you respond well to your treatment.
Management plan and treatment: this will be individualised and may involve pelvic floor & pelvic muscle releases and retraining, mindfulness & relaxation, bladder and bowel training, and specific exercise rehabilitation.
