Pelvic organs are structures found in the pelvic cavity. They include the bladder, womb and bowel.

The physiotherapist will assess your condition through an interview and a physical examination.
Based on the findings, your physiotherapist will tailor therapy to suit your specific needs. The physiotherapist will review you on a monthly interval to monitor progress. You will be prescribed a home programme of pelvic floor exercises. You can stop treatment after you have achieved optimal results as determined by your physiotherapist.

Physiotherapy is the first line of treatment for some urogynaecological conditions like urinary and pelvic organ prolapses. Physiotherapy treatment is safe and non-invasive and it can be an option before surgery is considered. Patients are often referred to the physiotherapist by the gynaecologist or urogynaecologist.
Rehabilitation Department is located on Basement One of the Children's Tower, KK Women's & Children Hospital.
