Physiotherapists trained in Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation are focused on assessing male and female pelvic conditions in order to treat pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions. We assess the nervous system, connective tissues, the strength and length of the pelvic floor muscles, severity of the incontinence, prolapsed grade, and muscle tone. We use evidence-based and biopsychosocial resources to develop goals and individualize treatment recommendations.
I can help with :
Pelvic floor muscles have several functions, which are essential to maintain continence, support the pelvic organs, provide lumbar stability and improve sexual function. Proper strength, muscle length and coordination are required to avoid dysfunction
You will be emailed a list of forms and a questionnaire to fill out and bring to the initial assessment. This process will optimize the first visit and achieve my number one goal: to give you the most effective and efficient treatment, and precise prognostic to guide you towards your recovery.
The initial consult will include a thorough subjective intake. We then perform a screen for the lower back, pelvis and hip movements. A vaginal and rectal internal assessment needs to be perform to confidently address pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions.
By the end of the first visit, you will have the knowledge to understand pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, a timeline to address your specific issue and exercises to start your journey to recovery.
Pelvic health physiotherapists understand the courage it takes to consult a health professional about pelvic dysfunctions. It's always my privilege to welcome you and create a safe environment by listening without judgement to all of your concerns and ask for your consent at every step of the assessment.
