Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a primary health care service that serves in the assessment and treatment of injuries or illness of the body. By using a holistic approach, physiotherapists are able to decipher the source of pain or injury and determine a plan of action for treatment. Physiotherapists use hands-on techniques, such as soft tissue release, myofasical release, joint mobilizations or manipulations, neural tissue mobilization and muscle re-training to help in the treatment of injury or illness.

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy is a branch of physiotherapy that deals specifically with the function of the Pelvic Floor Muscles. All Pelvic Floor Physiotherapists complete their post-secondary education in Physiotherapy and then go on to complete specialized courses focusing on this area of expertise. Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy has been proven to be the ideal first line of defense when dealing with incontinence and pelvic pain. During a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy Assessment, the physiotherapist will complete an internal and external exam by using hands-on techniques to determine the how the pelvic floor muscles are functioning. This assessment will inform the therapist on how well an individual is able to contract and relax these muscles, in turn determining if there is hypotonicity (weak pelvic floor muscles) or hypertonicity (tight pelvic floor muscles). In addition to determining the strength of these muscles, the therapist is able to assess other factors that can influence their function, such as the low-back, sacro-iliac joints, hip joints and the connective tissue that surrounds the area.

Who should come in for Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy is beneficial in improving the symptoms of a variety of pelvic floor dysfunctions. Incontinence, urinary frequency/urgency, constipation, dyspareunia (painful intercourse), pudendal nerve irritation, pelvic girdle pain and post partum assessment are a few of many issues that can be helped and treated with the aid of Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy.
