1 in 3 women experience women’s health problems during their lifetime. However many tolerate these problems, either too embarrassed to seek help or unaware that there are treatments available.

The pelvic floor has been described as a hammock or sling that extends from the pubic bone at the front to the coccyx at the back. Normal pelvic organ alignment and function relies on the integrity of the pelvic floor muscles and the internal pelvic and abdominal connective tissue. This can be damaged by childbirth or pelvic surgery. 

Core function relies on a synergistic action 

between the pelvic floor below, the diaphragm above, the abdominal muscles at the front and the deep spinal muscles behind. Any damage to one will affect the function of the others. 

Treatment is aimed at optimising the function of the core canister. In cases of incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse the pelvic floor muscles are often weak and research has shown that pelvic floor exercises could prevent surgery and reduce symptoms. Conservative management is recommended for 3 months by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

The pelvic floor muscles can also be tight or overactive and can present as chronic pelvic pain and may cause sexual discomfort. Treatment is aimed at releasing these muscles and restrictions before appropriate strengthening.

I have been so pleased with the kind, professional treatment and advice given to me by Bally of Lidder Therapies. I would urge any lady of any age to visit Bally.

I have 100% trust in her and felt safe and relaxed and confident during my examinations. 

Long term issues have been addressed and I feel like a new woman!

(My issues and problems were not post natal related - mainly just a result of hysterectomy surgery and poor advice following that regarding pelvic floor exercise).


Bally has been so helpful to me.

I am so impressed with the treatment received from Bally. Since my first session 6 weeks ago, my pain has decreased considerably and my pregnancy has been much more comfortable (and enjoyable!) I couldn’t recommend Bally enough to any expectant mother struggling with pelvic and back pain!
