Specifically, tailored exercise can help in managing your condition, preventing surgery or assisting in recovery from surgery.

Incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction

Urinary incontinence is a largely treatable and preventable condition, affecting up to 37% of Australian women. It can be awkward to speak about incontinence, however, letting us know can help in managing your condition and improving symptoms sooner. Urinary incontinence is not something that you have to just live with. We can help! Read more about Incontinence, PFD and how we can help.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)

POP refers to descending of any of the pelvic organs due to stretching of the ligaments, muscles and fascia, which hold these organs within the pelvis. POP affects approximately 1 in 5 Australian women during their lifetime. This is a scary statistic, and one that we hope to reduce by providing excellent TA and pelvic floor education to our patients. Learn more about how BodySmart Health+ can assist with POP condition.
