What is the pelvic floor?

The pelvis is the bony structure between the legs and spine. The pelvic floor is the group of muscles that form the bottom of the pelvis. The pelvic floor muscles attach to your tail bone and pubic bone and are comprised of the levator ani muscles, which include the pubococcygeus, puborectalis, and iliococcygeus muscles. These muscles can be damaged after childbirth. Likewise, they may be weakened as a result of aging and menopause. This results in a significant number of women in Singapore requiring physiotherapy.

  • Support the organs in the pelvis

Thanks to physiotherapist Maureen’s patience, understanding and expert guidance, I was able to make significant progress in my condition over three sessions! Most of all, her empathy, assuring presence and listening ear helped me to feel understood, comforted and supported in my anxieties. Will fully recommend the clinic and Maureen as a wonderful community resource for women & children issues.

I was referred by my gynac for my pelvic gridle pain. I have been working with Maureen and I'm super delighted with the way she has been handling my issue. She is extremely patient and explains well. I have been to physios earlier but never really seen satisfying results; this is the first time I feel it's worth it cause I'm able to see how it is making a difference. I still have a few sessions to go but I'm glad I signed up and I look forward to my appointments. There is no hard selling, and the reception staff is super warm and helpful. Overall, very good experience.

I've been seeing Ms Maureen for my pelvic floor after birth and she has been great in showing me exercises to strengthen my weak pelvic floor after my third birth. Ms Maureen takes time to explain the anatomy to me which makes it easier for me to follow and excel the exercises. I always look forward to the appointments with her as she is also such an amazing person to chat with. Also, the ladies at the front desk are very friendly and approachable. Love coming to this clinic!
