One in four individuals is affected by incontinence, however, most do not seek assistance.

Comprehensive assessment, management and provision of aids for women, men and children.

Vigour Physiotherapy at Vermont Medical Clinic focuses on Women's Health and pre and post pregnancy related issues.

Varsha is a specialised pelvic floor physiotherapist who is able to assess pelvic floor muscles and provide an individualised exercise program to aid with issues such as:

  • urinary incontinence
  • pelvic pain
  • prolapse and
  • pain during pregnancy

A trained pelvic floor physiotherapist is able to assess your muscles to gain a thorough understanding of the cause of symptoms. This is done by a visual examination, ultrasound or internal assessment.

After this, we can provide an optimal exercise program that is tailored for the individual needs of a specific issue. For example, if muscle strength is an issue- Pelvic Floor Physiotherapists will provide a specific program tailored to increase the force and power the muscle can generate.

Another major issue for women who report doing their exercises, is not quite understanding how to achieve the “pelvic floor squeeze”. Pelvic floor physiotherapists are trained to show you exactly how to contract the muscles appropriately to achieve the most effective results.

 If you are suffering from any of the symptoms mentioned above, we recommend seeing Varsha who is trained in this specialised area. To arrange your private appointment, please call 0416 421 821 or 9874 2422 at Vermont Medical Clinic.

The fee for pelvic floor physiotherapy is $125 for an initial assessment, a gap of $52.95 for patients with a care plan. Subsequent consultations are $95.
