Incontinence is one of our biggest health issues, affecting one in four Australians over the age of 15 years. An estimated 30 per cent of men who visit the GP are affected by incontinence, yet more than two thirds do not discuss the issue despite the high success rates with the right management (Continence Foundation of Australia, 2018).

We can help with problems related to:
If possible, please come to your appointment with a comfortable full bladder. This will allow the use of transperineal or transabdominal real time ultrasound to assessment your pelvic floor lift and your bladder volumes if appropriate. For a complete assessment, a digital rectal examination may be proposed. This examination helps to thoroughly identify to what extent your pelvic floor muscles contribute to your problem/s and helps to prescribe the most effective treatment based on examination findings.
The treating Physiotherapist will explain what happens during the examination. You will be given time to consider whether to have this examination or not, and to ask questions about the procedure. You do not have to have an internal examination if you do not want it. The treating physiotherapist can continue the treatment using real time ultrasound; however, the treatment may not be as beneficial as the treatment you have following the internal examination.
There should be no discomfort during the examination, you are always in 100% of control and can cease the assessment or treatment at any time.
Your initial appointment will be approximately one hour.
