Too many women of all ages suffer from incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and painful intercourse. These problems create frustration and discomfort in your daily life. We believe that everyone should have access to the best treatment options possible and ability to make informed decisions about their pelvic health.
Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialized branch of physiotherapy involving internal and external assessment and treatment of the pelvic floor muscles. Those muscles are located between the hip bones and the sacrum, and they serve as a bowl to support the pelvic organs including the bladder, colon and uterus.
A few specific indicators that you may benefit from pelvic physiotherapy are:
- Leaking urine, gas, or stool when you laugh, sneeze, cough or exercise
- Needing to pee frequently, more than about 5-7 times each day
- Getting up at night to use a bathroom more than once
- Pelvic pain or pain with sex or tampon use
- Having sudden urges to pee that lead to leaking or barely making it to the bathroom
- Diastasis recti (abdominal separation)
- Pelvic organ prolapse or a sense of vaginal heaviness
- Bowel issues including constipation, straining or pain
- Pre & during pregnancy to prepare for labour
- Post pregnancy issues including pain, leakage, bulging and scarring from c-sections, tearing or episiotomy
