Pelvic health Physiotherapy can help with issues relating to bladder function, bowel function and sexual dysfunction following cancer treatment. This will usually involve improving pelvic floor muscle function, prolapse rehabilitation, scar management, bladder health and techniques to help improve bowel control, bowel emptying, frequency and diet. Some cancer treatments can trigger pain during intercourse and pelvic health physiotherapy, alongside psychosexual counselling helps to improve scar mobility and reduce muscle spasm that can be the cause of pain.
