Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a unique type of physiotherapy that focuses on the muscles, connective tissues, and structures that make up or affect the pelvis.

An assessment involves a thorough history taken through a questionnaire and a interview with your therapist followed by an examination of muscles and connective tissues. An internal evaluation may be warranted to help accurately assess the tissues that make up the pelvic floor.

When treated appropriately, pelvic floor physiotherapy may aid with the following symptoms:

  • Urinary incontinence with sneezing, coughing, laughing, or exercise

  • Bladder urgency with or without leakage

  • Fecal incontinence

  • Vaginal or vulvar pain

  • Feeling of fullness or heaviness in the vagina or a diagnosis of pelvic organ prolapse

  • Pregnancy or Postpartum

  • Have rectus diastases or separation of abdominals

  • Tailbone or low-back pain

  • Painful periods or have been diagnosed with endometriosis

  • Frequent urination/overactive bladder

  • Have interstitial cystitis

  • Chronic constipation or irritable bowel syndrome
