Pelvic Health/Floor Physiotherapy addresses signs and symptoms that may be originating and/or presenting in the pelvic floor and other deep core muscles. Although common, pelvic health concerns among women do not have to be suffered within silence – they can be addressed with conservative, non-surgical, evidence-based strategies. In fact, Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy is considered the first-line conservative management option for various pelvic health concerns, as proven in the research.
If the pelvic floor muscles are too tight and/or weak, lack endurance, or have difficulty coordinating with other muscle groups, certain conditions can ensue. A Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist has specialized post-graduate training in the assessment and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction, in addition to having a deep understanding of the entire body in terms of anatomy and functional movement patterns. Whether you are a female or male, amateur or high-level athlete, or among the prenatal or postpartum population – everyone has pelvic floor muscles and thus, Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy has a role to play in anyone’s life.
