Our pelvic health physiotherapy service offers specialist assessment and rehabilitation for pelvic, bladder and bowel pain and dysfunction.

Our specialist services for women include treatment for pregnancy-related pain, bladder or bowel problems and those with pelvic floor muscle dysfunction.

We also have specialist services for paediatrics and men's bladder and bowel problems. 

We have members of our team based out of Hillingdon Hospital, Mount Vernon Hospital and several sites in the community including Eastcote Health Centre and Uxbridge Health Centre. 

Our aim is to diagnose a patient’s condition and set out a treatment plan with them in order to achieve the best possible outcome. We work in close collaboration with our consultants to ensure all our patients are treated to the highest standard.
