Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

IMG_3174
Pelvic floor physiotherapy is our specialty. It is used to treat urinary incontinence and some forms of constipation, pelvic pain, and pain during sexual intercourse, post-operative complications from prostate cancer and other problems in the pelvic region. We also offer consultation prior to operations like bladder lifting, vestibulectomy, and prostate cancer removal. It is recommended that you speak with your doctor to receive a proper diagnosis and to determine whether physiotherapy is indicated for your condition.
One of our physiotherapists will evaluate your condition through a series of questions and a physical examination, which will usually involve a pelvic exam. Based on the problems identified, you may be given a series of exercises and undergo manual treatment techniques to reeducate the pelvic floor either by relaxing or contracting specific muscle groups. The physiotherapist may also use a biofeedback machine which is meant to detect electrical activity in your muscles, to help teach you how to control them. In some cases, electrical stimulation is used to help you learn how to contract your muscles. If you have any questions at all, and to find out if pelvic floor physiotherapy is an appropriate treatment for you, please contact our staff.
