St. John's Pelvic Health Physiotherapy Experts
Physiotherapy for the pelvic floor assists in the treatment of problems or conditions affecting bladder, bowel and sexual function. The muscles of the pelvic floor extend from the tailbone to the pubic bone. These muscles support the hips, lower back and the pelvic organs, which include the uterus, bladder and rectum.
The pelvic floor muscles are just like the muscles in the rest of the body. They can experience dysfunction and become injured, tight or weak. This dysfunction can be the result of many issues such as but not limited to:
- Hormonal Changes
- Repeated Infections involving the pelvis
- Gastrointestinal issues and
- Exercise stress
A problem can arise due to issues involving any of these concerns and can result in urinary incontinence, urgency, constipation, pelvic organ prolapses, sexual dysfunction and pelvic pain disorders.
Due to the intimate nature of conditions involving the pelvic floor, they often go unrecognized and under treated. However, a Registered Physiotherapist with specialized training in Women’s and Pelvic Health can help to successfully treat these conditions.
Various physiotherapy treatment techniques including biofeedback, neuromuscular stimulation, internal palpation and manual treatment techniques of the pelvic floor musculature, strengthening and re-education of the pelvic floor muscles, are proven to be effective in treating problems involving the pelvic floor.
Physiotherapy can be an effective treatment option to help improve the quality of life of women experiencing problems that involve the pelvis.
