Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

What is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?

What is happening? Muscles too weak? Too tight? This is where we help you take control!
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles found in the base “the floor” of your pelvis (the bottom of your torso). Think of them like the bottom of a basket that supports your pelvic organs. The pelvic floor muscles support the uterus, bladder and bowel in women and the bladder and bowel in men. The Pelvic floor muscles add support to your organs and add stability by forming a sling.

Pelvic floor dysfunction is a very common condition where you are unable to control, relax, or coordinate the pelvic floor muscles which can affect urination, bowel movements, and or pelvic pain.

This is where Pelvic Floor Physiotherapists at Vitality Physiotherapy come in. We are highly trained and experienced physiotherapists that are specialized in treating pelvic health and pelvic floor dysfunction. Our practice includes both external and internal physiotherapy to identify the underlying cause.

The ultimate goal is to improve your pelvic floor coordination and function and eliminate any of your symptoms through an individualized program focusing on education, manual hands on therapy, exercises, and lifestyle changes. This specialized type of therapy involves treating those pelvic groups of muscles that are involved with urinary, bowel, and sexual function.

This is where we help you take control!
