What is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?2019-06-24T13:58:14-04:00

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a rehabilitation treatment for women with pelvic floor weakness, incontinence, and low grade prolapse.

The pelvic floor is a group of internal muscles that are responsible in assisting with spinal and pelvic stability. These muscles can be weakened by childbirth, surgery, heavy lifting, being overweight, constipation or menopause.

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy Assessment
A pelvic health physiotherapy assessment includes an internal assessment with vaginal and/or rectal palpation to determine the level of function of the pelvic floor muscles. The assessment will determine if the pelvic floor is weak, overactive or if they are functioning with appropriate timing and coordination. The pelvic health assessment also includes a full body movement screen, range of motion, and strength testing.

Pelvic Floor Treatment
A pelvic floor physiotherapist works with women to get the pelvic floor muscles working effectively. Rehabilitation may include manual treatment, exercises, biofeedback (electronic monitoring), and advice about daily activities and fitness, as well as good bladder and bowel habits.
