What is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialized branch of physiotherapy that focuses on rehabilitation of the pelvic floor, hips and core and  treats dysfunctions involved in pregnancy, urinary, bowel and sexual functions. The pelvic floor muscles are located between the sacrum and the hip bones, and can be assessed both internally and externally.
