Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is a specialization of physiotherapy that focuses on the muscles, joints, ligaments, nerves and connective tissue of the pelvic girdle. The pelvic floor muscles support the pelvic organs, facilitate bladder and bowel function, sexual function and stabilize your “core”. These muscles can be rehabilitated like any other muscle in the body. Your physiotherapist will conduct an assessment and treatment using internal and external techniques. An internal exam is important to properly assess the pelvic floor and determine if your muscles are short and tight or weak and lengthened and to develop the most effective treatment plan for you. Kegels are often prescribed for pelvic pain and incontinence however; they are not always indicated for pelvic floor problems.  Sometimes they do more harm than good, and often they are not performed correctly. Treatment is most effective with an internal examination, however upon request can be done with external examination only. Pelvic Health Physiotherapy treatments are individualized to the needs of the patient and may include manual therapy, rehabilitative exercises, behaviour modification, education, and modality therapy. Pelvic health conditions are often personal in nature and can bring with them stress, anxiety and frustration. Every interaction is confidential, and we provide compassionate, caring, whole person care.
