Physiotherapy for Incontinence in Women and Men
At Shelbourne Physiotherapy we have highly trained Physiotherapists Laura Werner, Cathy Stedman and Lindsay Baker to help assess and manage these challenges and help get you exercising in a safe and effective way.
How to get started?
You start with an initial assessment to determine your needs. From there we help you to get back on track with movement and exercise.
At Shelbourne Physiotherapy we can provide you with a consultation using our real time ultrasound unit. This machine can accurately visualise muscles like your pelvic floor, deep abdominals and hip tendons, via pictures taken through a sound head that we place on your abdomen or pelvis (like when you see a baby in the womb). It can allow us to determine if you are able to switch on the muscles when you think you are and also to help provide live feedback to help retrain recruitment if you are not.
Who can benefit from the use of real-time ultrasound?
Ultrasound physiotherapy can be used for any muscle retraining. The most popular conditions that can be assisted by real time ultrasound physiotherapy include:
- Lower Back Pain - Transversus Abdominus & Multifidus
- SIJ Pain
- Pregnancy back pain
- Pelvic instability
- Hip Pain - Gluteal tendinopathy
- Core Exercises
