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.
Who Can Benefit?
Urinary frequency, urgency, hesitancy, stopping and starting of the urine stream, painful urination, or incomplete emptying
Constipation, straining, pain with bowel movements
Unexplained pain in low back, lower abdomen, pelvic region, hips, genital area, or rectum
Pain during or after intercourse, orgasm, or sexual stimulation
Pain during vaginal exams or when using a tampon (women)
Uncoordinated muscle contractions causing the pelvic floor muscles to spasm
Urinary and Fecal Urgency, Urge Incontinence, Chronic Pelvic Pain, Dyspareunia, Vaginismus, Vulvodynia, Pudendal Neuralgia, Interstitial Cystitis and Chronic Prostatitis, Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pain during urination or when the bladder is full
Urine leakage when coughing, sneezing or laughing
Chronic pain linked to endometriosis, irritable bowel syndrome or fibromyalgia
It is custom in France for women who undergo a vaginal delivery to see a pelvic floor Physiotherapist as part of their post partum recovery
American Urological Association now recommends diet modification and pelvic floor physiotherapy as the first line of defence for individuals with painful bladder syndrome
Research is saying that pelvic floor physiotherapy should be completed for all individuals who suffer from leakage BEFORE surgery is considered
Pelvic floor physiotherapy is the gold standard in Britain for treating stress and urge incontinence
