Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

The pelvic/womens/mens health physiotherapy team specialise in treating patients presenting with pelvic floor dysfunction (pelvic  problems/issues). 

All patients need to be referred by a health care provider (GP, Consultant or Midwife) as we are unable to accept self-referrals.

We assess patients with a wide variety of problems including those with:

  • Urinary (bladder) incontinence (stress, urge and mixed incontinence)
  • Bowel incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • pain with sex/intercourse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Post-natal perineal injury including 3rd and 4th degree tears/pelvic floor problems
  • Ante-natal and post-natal pregnancy related musculoskeletal dysfunction (pelvic girdle/back pain/diastasis rectus abdominus)

Most patients are offered an initial telephone assessment.  During the telephone call we will ask for information about your medical history, symptoms and goals, so that we can plan an individualised treatment programme with you, that is suitable for you.

They are currently run clinics at Malton, Selby and York hospitals.


The team have online group sessions for pregnant women with pregnancy related pelvic girdle/back pain

Ante-natal back/pelvic pain groups

The team runs an informative advice and exercise session, aimed at self-management, for pregnant patients to help them adjust to the changes in their body during pregnancy (who may are experiencing pregnancy related pelvic girdle/back pain). These sessions are held online and all patients need to have been referred to physiotherapy by their doctor or midwife.

Online videos

In conjunction with the on-line group, the videos in the link below provide advice and exercises for women during pregnancy that may help prevent or improve pregnancy related back/pelvic pain. If you have been advised not to exercise by a health care professional, please seek advice before starting these.

Treatment is always individualised and is in accordance with current guidelines from the professional network group, Pelvic Obstetric Gynaecological Physiotherapy (POGP), NICE and The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.
