What Are Pelvic Floor Exercises And Why Are They Important?
The Allsports Physiotherapy Group is one of the leading providers of allied healthcare in Australia.
We use a multidisciplinary approach to design individualised treatment and rehabilitation programs for a wide range of injuries for patients from all walks of life.
Our growing number of purpose-built physiotherapy and sports medicine clinics provide expert physiotherapy treatment and easy access to a comprehensive range of allied health services aimed at caring for the whole person.
Here at Allsports Physiotherapy, we regularly see people with urinary incontinence as a result of the pelvic floor muscles not working as well as they should.
For the second consecutive year, Allsports Physiotherapy (as part of the Healthia Ltd group) has partnered with Queensland Rugby Union to become the naming rights sponsor for the Hospital Challenge Cup.
Knee pain is one of the most common complaints our allied health professionals see in clinic. But do not worry – physiotherapy has been proven to be extremely helpful in alleviating knee pain.
Why is knee pain so common?
The knee is the largest shock absorbing joint in the leg and takes the brunt of our day-to-day loads. The knee joint is essentially made up of bones, cartilage, and ligaments. Four bones make up your knee joint: the thigh bone (femur), shin bones (tibia and fibula) and the patella (kneecap). These bones are lined with chondral cartilage and two meniscus (tough rubbery pieces of cartilage) that sit between your thigh and shin bones to help absorb shock and facilitate movement. There are four important structural ligaments that keep your knee stable and the muscles around your knee also support your joint. Any of these structures can be a source of pain.
