Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

An Effective Treatment For Urinary Incontinence and other conditions

What is the Pelvic Floor?

The pelvic floor consists of the three muscles that wrap around the urethra, rectum and vagina. This set of muscles acts like a sling that supports the urinary and reproductive organs. These muscles also help with bladder and bowel functions.

What Should You Expect at Your Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy Appointment?

A physiotherapist will assess your posture, breathing, and different muscles to see if they are functioning properly. Your physiotherapist may also perform an internal examination (vaginal and/or rectal) to fully assess your pelvic floor and create a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Although internal examination is recommended, your physiotherapist will not begin an internal examination or treatment if you are not ready.

The Role of Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy in Enhancing Quality of Life

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy offers an effective approach for addressing pelvic floor dysfunction resulting from weakened or tight pelvic floor muscles. This treatment addresses issues such as incontinence and discomfort during sexual intercourse, among others. Left untreated, these conditions may progressively worsen, significantly impairing overall quality of life. Initiating Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy at the earliest opportunity can substantially improve symptoms and overall well-being.
