FORMING a ‘sling’ from the pubic bone at the front to the tailbone at the back, the pelvic floor muscles support the womb (uterus), bladder and bowel (colon).

Childbirth and age impacts on these muscles, however, weakening them and often resulting in embarrassing incontinence which can be easily treated at at Bankstown Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre.
Women’s instructor Clare Yoo draws on her background in Pilates and Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy to treat a range of women’s health issues.
These include pregnancy related pelvic and lower back pain, incontinence as well as general strength and conditioning post-child birth.

“Many women are reluctant to seek help with these issues because it is very personal and they often put up with it for years,”

Clare said.

“But that is so not necessary as there are always strategies to implement that will get you back on the right track.
“The first step is to come in for a muscle assessment and from there, I can tailor a plan to make life easier for you.”
Clare is available full-time except on Tuesdays and Sundays; call 9793 3119 to book your appointment.
