What is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapists are specially trained to assess the external and internal structures of your pelvic floor that often lead to urinary or bowel incontinence, urgency, frequency and prolapse, dyspareunia, as well as being an integral contributor to low back, pelvic and hip pain. They may also help in your pre-natal journey with preparing the pelvic floor and body for labour and delivery or in your post-natal journey through a guided return to exercise and impact activity. They will assess the strength, relaxation and coordination of the muscles and connect them with the rest of your core, posture and movement patterns to get you functioning at your optimum capacity and achieving your personal goals.

What to expect at your Physiotherapy assessment?

  • Detailed personal and medical history
  • Postural and functional movement assessment
  • Assessment of your low back, sacroiliac joints and hips
  • Assessment of core muscles strength and coordination
  • External and/or internal assessment of the pelvic floor

Pelvic Floor Treatment will or may include:

  • Personalized treatment program

Recovery for all levels

Elite specializes in injury recovery for all sports and levels of athlete. Our team facilitates rapid access to complete recovery. Frequently, we see patients within a day or two of their physician exam when return to full function is critical. We immediately address acute swelling, pain and compensatory issues and initiate a home program to maintain strength and motion.

Your Part

In order to ensure a successful treatment and speed recovery, you need to be fully committed to your treatment plan. Your time in the clinic is only part of the process. The exercises and perhaps changes in your own behavior are a crucial part of your plan. We know how your body works; we may identify an underlying weakness, poor posture, work habits, or other factors that contribute to the problem.
