What is Pelvic Health Physiotherapy?
Pelvic health physiotherapy (also called pelvic floor physiotherapy or pelvic physiotherapy) is the assessment and treatment of various conditions that involve the pelvic floor or symptoms that manifest in this area. The pelvic floor includes muscles, ligaments, nerves, and connective tissue. It plays an important role in the body by providing support for the bladder, genitals, uterus, and anus.
The pelvic floor has many functions including:
When the pelvic floor is not functioning properly this can lead to incontinence (in both the bowel and bladder), prolapse of the organs, pelvic pain, low back pain, pain with intercourse, sexual dysfunction, and more.
Do You Suffer from Any of These Conditions?
Physiotherapy can help you train and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles to ease or eliminate your symptoms.
What to Expect at a Pelvic Health Appointment?
A pelvic health therapist will do a thorough assessment of your abdomen, back, and pelvic girdle. Pelvic health therapists will complete an internal examination to accurately assess your pelvic floor muscles. Treatment is similar and will often involve internal therapy. Therapy will also include exercises and a home exercise program like physiotherapy for other conditions.
