The pelvic floor muscles are important for bladder and bowel control as well as sexual function. In Australia 1 in 4 Australians over the age of 15 report incontinence. An estimated 30 per cent of men who visit their GP are affected by incontinence, yet more than 60% of men do not discuss the issue.

Physiotherapy can help your pelvic floor dysfunction. If you are not sure if you have a bladder or bowel issue please complete our continence survey:
