Pelvic Health - Incontinence, Prolapse, Pain

Pelvic floor physiotherapy refers to the rehabilitation of the muscles that we use for bowel/bladder function, sexual health and stabilization of the pelvic/low back regions in males + females. A Physiotherapist with a special interest in Pelvic Health conditions can assess and treat pelvic floor muscles.

Assessment - Pelvic Floor 

The assessment may include discussing:

  • pelvic health history

  • nutrition habits

  • bladder & bowel habits

  • pelvic muscle control & tension

  • internal pelvic exam, if consent given 

Treatment - Pelvic Floor

The treatment may include:

  • education on healthy bowel & bladder habits

  • muscle activation & relaxation re-training

  • stress management

  • pelvic floor re-education

This specialization is becoming more established in the literature as a first-line of defence against incontinence (loss in bowel or bladder control) and pelvic pain. Pelvic health can be impacted by pregnancy, abdominal/pelvic surgeries, traumatic injuries, muscle strain, and postural/hip/low back issues.
