PELVIC PHYSIOTHERAPY

Pelvic physiotherapy has been referred to as “internal Pilates” and aims to strengthen the muscles lining your pelvic floor.

Pelvic physiotherapy can help with a variety of symptoms including:

– Stress urinary incontinence- leakage of urine with an increase in abdominal pressure, such as a cough or sneeze 

– Urge incontinence- leakage of urine associated with a strong urge to urinate 

– Urinary urgency 

– Urinary frequency 

– Voiding dysfunction (hesitation,  restricted flow, a sensation of incomplete emptying of the bladder) 

– Pelvic organ prolapse 

– Prostatitis 

– Symptoms after radical prostatectomy 

– Constipation or pain with bowel movements 

– Unexplained pain in the low back, hips or pelvic region 

– Pain during or after intercourse or sexual stimulation 

Pelvic physiotherapy at Valeo Wellness Clinic will begin with a detailed history and setting up an individualized plan based on your specific goals.Your personalized plan may include; completing a bladder diary, bladder retraining, making lifestyle adjustments, toileting education, relaxation exercises, stretches, and pelvic floor muscle retraining (kegels and/or reverse kegels). 

Kegels are NOT always recommended for pelvic floor problems! Sometimes they do more harm than good, and often they are not performed correctly.
