When you sign up for pelvic floor therapy at our Halifax or Dartmouth clinic, Kegels won’t be the limit to what you do. Pelvic floor physiotherapists have advanced training in the assessment and treatment of conditions that impact the pelvic floor. Some of the conditions they help treat and prevent may include:
Pelvic organ prolapse
Pelvic pain conditions
Problems during and after pregnancy
Urinary/fecal urgency and incontinence
Pelvic floor muscles support the pelvic organs, including the bladder, bowel and uterus in women. They prevent incontinence and play an important role in sexual function. When the muscles of the pelvic floor are weak or too tight, this can create problems.
The good news is pelvic floor physiotherapy can help! Your physiotherapist will complete a thorough history and a physical exam which may include an internal exam if necessary, which will determine a treatment plan specific to your needs. This will likely include exercise, lifestyle education, manual and biofeedback techniques. The main focus of physiotherapy is to connect you to your pelvic floor and enhance your quality of life.
