Here’s How Pelvic Health Physiotherapists can help:

  • Urinary and fecal incontinence can be improved or resolved with physiotherapy.
  • The bladder muscle  (yes, it’s a muscle) can be trained to reduce urinary urgency and frequency.
  • Pelvic pain and pressure can be reduced or resolved with soft tissue release, scar massage and exercise.
  • Prenatal visits can screen for pre-existing concerns and provide strategies for labor and delivery which can reduce post-pregnancy problems. 

Did you know:

  • 10% of the Canadian population experience some form of urinary incontinence (Canadian Continence Foundation).
  • Specially trained Pelvic Health Physiotherapists can help both MEN and WOMEN who suffer from pelvic health issues.
  • Education, manual therapy, self-management techniques and exercise can all be part of treatment.
