Pelvic Health Physiotherapy


Physiotherapy for pelvic health needs

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy


Pelvic floor dysfunction is far too common. Many women suffer from the conditions listed below. Research continues to show that pelvic floor rehabilitation, when carried out by a qualified pelvic health physiotherapist, is highly successful and should be first-line treatment before surgery or medication. Women who are experiencing the following symptoms should consider consulting our pelvic health physiotherapist.


Common Pelvic Health Conditions

  • Incontinence, leakage of urine or bowels (from coughing, sneezing, or not getting to the bathroom in time) 

  • Urgency (needing to go to the bathroom often, unable to wait to go to the bathroom) 

  • Bowel and rectal disorder (constipation, straining and pain)

  • Pain in pelvic area, genital area or rectum (endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, vulvodynia, hemorrhoids, frequent UTIs, etc.) 

  • Unexplained ongoing low back pain 

  • Pain during or after sex 

  • Pelvic organ prolapse (pressure, heaviness or bulging in the pelvic region) 

  • Pre- and post-pregnancy care, muscle re-education, pain management 

  • Scaring and abdominal weakness from c-sections

  • Scaring from vaginal deliveries from tearing or episiotomy


Who do we treat?


We treat adult women aged 18+. 

The majority of pelvic floor problems will occur for women after pregnancy and child birth, but many women experience pelvic floor dysfunction without child-bearing.

Many women who are post-menopausal experience pain, prolapse and incontinence due to changes in estrogen levels.

Many athletes will experience incontinence, prolapse, and pain due to pelvic floor muscles that are too tight.

Many sedentary women will experience pain, incontinence and prolapse from a very weak pelvic floor. The list goes on. 


What to expect on your first visit


The first visit in intended to get a very thorough medical history. Your pelvic health physiotherapist will want to know all the details of your pelvic floor function and how it is affecting your quality life. We talk about everything related to the pelvis: poop, pee, pain, pregnancy and sex.

The pelvic health physiotherapist will then evaluate the pelvic structures; your posture; strength; and the muscles and joints of the spine and hips. We will also evaluate directly the pelvic floor muscles. This is done internally through the vagina (similar to a routine PAP test) with a finger to test the function of the muscles.

An internal pelvic exam is considered goal standard in assessing and treating pelvic floor dysfunction, but some women may chose not to have and internal pelvic exam done. Remember that pelvic health physiotherapists are highly trained and sensitive professionals. Your pelvic health physiotherapist will discuss with you all aspects of the treatment, your goals, and your options before proceeding.
