Pelvic Physiotherapy
in Etobicoke

What is Pelvic Physiotherapy?

Pelvic physiotherapy, also known as pelvic floor physiotherapy, is a specialized branch of physiotherapy that focuses on the assessment and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunctions. The pelvic floor muscles play a crucial role in supporting our core, bladder, bowel, and sexual function. When these muscles become weakened, tight, or dysfunctional, it can lead to a range of uncomfortable and often embarrassing issues.

Our goal is to identify any muscle imbalances, weaknesses, or tension in the pelvic region. Based on this assessment, a personalized treatment plan will be created to address your unique needs and goals.

What Happens During a Pelvic Physiotherapy Treatment

At All About Physio, we prioritize your comfort and well-being throughout the treatment process. During your initial consultation, our experienced pelvic physiotherapist will conduct a thorough assessment of your pelvic floor muscles and surrounding structures. This assessment may include discussions about your medical history, lifestyle factors, and any specific concerns you have regarding pelvic health.

Your pelvic physiotherapist will explain each step of the treatment and ensure you are at ease with the procedures. The treatment sessions are conducted in a private and confidential setting.

Pelvic physiotherapy treatment may include:

  • Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercises: Targeted exercises to strengthen weak pelvic floor muscles or relax tight ones.
  • Biofeedback: Using specialized equipment to provide real-time feedback on pelvic muscle contractions, helping you learn how to properly engage and relax these muscles.
  • Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques to release tension and improve mobility in the pelvic region.
  • Education and Lifestyle Recommendations: We provide valuable information on how to maintain pelvic health through lifestyle modifications, postural adjustments, and bladder/bowel habits.
  • Relaxation Techniques: Techniques to reduce stress and tension in the pelvic area, promoting better muscle function.

Please wear comfortable clothing to your pelvic physio appointments, as the assessment and treatment may involve internal examinations.
