RESTORING YOUR PELVIC HEALTH - WHAT TO EXPECT
Your assessment and treatment will depend on your presenting condition.
Initially a confidential and detailed medical history is taken to understand the onset of your symptoms. You are taught how the pelvis and the pelvic floor muscles move and work to understand how and why you are experiencing your symptoms. Your physical assessment can involve an examination of your abdominal muscles and your breathing control. Your lower back, hips and pelvis can be examined, and you may be offered an internal assessment. This assessment can identify the tone, strength and control of your pelvic floor muscles. They are tested for strength and endurance and your baseline power can be established. Your treatment and goals can then be set depending on the findings.

”Top class service from Michael Gallagher - many times over the years has "fixed me" with sensible and practical solutions and advice, including one occasion where others had suggested more drastic actions which would have had serious implications for myself. Highly recommended!Barry O'Donoghue
”Thanks so much to Darcy for the physio this week and last. I feel fantastic!. I’ve been able to sleep pain-free and dance with my babies again!. Very very happy with the service.Ann Marie Gilmore
”Thanks to Michael and the team at Baily Point Physio. After visiting them in August with knee problems they sorted me out with orthotic insoles and an exercise routine. Since then (2months ago) I have climbed Kilimanjaro twice with no knee problems – a great result. Highly recommend them.Duncan Warner
