A significant number of women experience pelvic health dysfunction during their lifetime. Approximately one in three women develop incontinence, and at least 50 percent of women aged over 50 have some degree of pelvic organ prolapse. Pelvic health conditions may be caused by a single precipitating event, such as childbirth, or relate to life changes, such as peri-menopause. This course introduces conditions commonly treated by pelvic health physiotherapists, including urinary and faecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and persistent pelvic pain.


This course aims to introduce conditions commonly encountered in women's pelvic health physiotherapy practice.

I clearly understood the mechanism of pelvic floor muscles, the different conditions they affect, and how they can be treated. It is so important to talk and educate patients in simple words!

Amazing Course! Very well put together and hardly took an hour. I highly recommend it if you are short on time and need a productive learning session.
Dania Sijjil
Great course for anyone wanting to learn more about the pelvic floor, as we do not receive much information about it in the physiotherapy curriculum!
