Specialist Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
Sarah Higgins - Prime Pelvic Physio

Sarah is a specialist pelvic health physiotherapist and is passionate about women receiving the best possible care, at every stage of their lives.  

 

She graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2003 and worked in the NHS for over ten years, specialising in pelvic health physiotherapy in the latter years. 

After transferring to the private sector to cement and develop her speciality she has been based at a flagship private hospital since 2014, where she continues to practice, and enjoys established connections with top regional consultants.

Pelvic health physiotherapy can have such a positive impact on the lives of women, without the need for more invasive treatment, medication, or surgery. 

Conditions include:

  • Urinary incontinence (stress and urge) 

  • Over-active bladder 

  • Pelvic floor dysfunction (weakness, tightness, muscle imbalance) 

  • Pelvic organ prolapse

  • Faecal urgency, incontinence, constipation, muscle imbalance 

  • Post-natal assessment

  • Female pelvic pain

  • Vaginismus 

  • Painful sex 

  • Menopause symptoms

  • Rehab pre/post-gynaecological surgery

These symptoms will not go away/get better on their own, but the good news is that around 80% of conditions will respond positively to pelvic health physiotherapy.

All treatment takes place in a private treatment room with a targeted hands-on approach. Using a combined approach of exercise therapy, education & advice, and manual therapy, Sarah follows the NICE best practice guidelines and the most up to date evidence-based practice.

 

The treatments offered include:

  • Re-education of correct pelvic floor function (this may involve relaxation as well as strengthening exercises)

  • Bladder drill advice

  • Trigger point release 

  • Pelvic pain management 

  • Bowel advice and strategies 

  • Menopause symptom management

  • A combination of yoga and Pilates exercises, to help establish a strong, flexible core
