Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

Pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles that attach to the front, back and sides of the pelvic bone
and sacrum. They support bladder, uterus, prostate and rectum. Pelvic floor physiotherapists have special
training in order to evaluate the function of the pelvic floor muscles by using internal and external manual
techniques (hands on). They will also assess your ability to contract and relax these muscles. They will
evaluate the muscles and bones of your low back, hips and sacro-iliac joints.


Pelvic Floor Dysfunction can be caused by:

Hypotonicity

(Weak pelvic floor muscles): contributing to stress incontinence, urge incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Incontinence is NOT a normal part of aging

Hypertonocity

(Tight pelvic floor muscles): contributing to Urinary and Fecal Urgency, Urge Incontinence, Chronic Pelvic Pain, Dyspareunia, Vaginismus, Vulvodynia,
