Pelvic Floor Recovery
Books and media by Sue Croft OAM Physiotherapist
Improve bladder and bowel dysfunction. Recover from gynaecological surgery, colorectal surgery and childbirth. Learn about your pelvic floor muscles, how to control prolapse. Manage persistent pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction and return to exercise, sport and work, and much, much more.
‘Earlier rather than later’ should be the motto, but remember, it is never too late.
These books are vitally important for women & their pelvic floor management, especially following gynaecological and colorectal surgery and childbirth. The books will help you learn about your pelvic floor muscles, the role of posture and your pelvic floor, causes of pelvic health issues, normal and abnormal bladder function, management of bowel function, prolapse management, pessaries and strategies for managing persistent pelvic pain. The books will help you recover from gynaecological surgery, give you guidance on exercises for home recovery, returning to normal exercise, sport, work, travelling and on sexual dysfunction. You will also read on topics such as nocturia, overactive bladder syndrome, vulvodynia, endometriosis, bladder pain syndrome, interstitial cystitis and body scan relaxation.
