Why choose pelvic floor physiotherapy?
Pelvic floor physiotherapy rehabilitates the muscles that are involved in bowel and bladder function, sexual function, stabilization of the pelvic region and organ support. Pelvic health issues can affect both men and women at various stages in their life.
A pelvic floor physiotherapist specializes in the assessment and treatment of the pelvic floor and core muscles and how they integrate in activities of daily life. This includes looking at the whole person, evaluating bladder and bowel habits, addressing lifestyle factors, assessing pelvic floor muscle activity, strength, tone, endurance and coordination.
Treatment may consist of manual therapy, individualized exercise program, bowel/bladder retraining, lifestyle adjustments and health education.
