What is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialized branch of physical therapy that primarily focuses on the assessment, rehabilitation, and treatment of the pelvic floor muscles.

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles and connective tissues situated at the base of the pelvis, responsible for supporting the bladder, uterus, and rectum, and controlling functions like urination and bowel movements. Pelvic floor physiotherapists are trained to address a wide range of issues that can affect these muscles, including incontinence, pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, and sexual dysfunction.

Using a combination of manual techniques, therapeutic exercises, biofeedback, and education, pelvic floor physiotherapy aims to restore the strength, coordination, and function of the pelvic floor muscles, ultimately improving the quality of life for individuals experiencing these conditions.

Benefits of Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Pre- and Post-Natal Care: For women during and after pregnancy, pelvic floor physiotherapy offers support in maintaining pelvic health, preparing for childbirth, and aiding in postpartum recovery, ensuring a smoother and more comfortable maternal experience.

Reduced Pelvic Pain: Pelvic floor physiotherapy relieves pelvic pain by relaxing tense muscles, enhancing mobility, and managing scar tissue, resulting in decreased discomfort and improved quality of life.

Enhanced Bowel Function: Pelvic floor physiotherapy improves bowel function by reducing fecal incontinence, alleviating chronic constipation, and minimizing discomfort from conditions like hemorrhoids, restoring confidence and comfort.

What to expect during your Pelvic Foor Physiotherapy session

Assessment and Discussion: During a pelvic floor physiotherapy session, you can expect an initial assessment and discussion with the physiotherapist. This will involve a conversation about your medical history, specific concerns, and symptoms related to pelvic health. The therapist will work to understand your individual needs and goals, ensuring a personalized treatment plan.

Physical Examination and Education: The session typically includes a physical examination, which may involve both external and internal assessments of the pelvic floor muscles. The therapist will guide you through exercises and techniques to better understand and control these muscles. They will also provide education on anatomy and how the pelvic floor functions, offering insights into the causes of your concerns.

Tailored Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment and discussion, the physiotherapist will create a customized treatment plan. This plan may include a series of exercises and techniques to address your specific pelvic floor issues, as well as guidance on lifestyle modifications and self-care strategies. Subsequent sessions will focus on implementing and progressing this treatment plan, with the ultimate goal of improving your pelvic health and overall well-being.

Who is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy for?

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is for a wide range of individuals, both men and women, who experience issues related to pelvic health. It is particularly beneficial for women during various life stages, including pregnancy and postpartum recovery, as it addresses concerns like incontinence, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ support. This therapy is essential for women who want to optimize their pelvic health during pregnancy, prepare for childbirth, and recover afterward, regaining control over their pelvic floor muscles and core strength.

Additionally, men and women of all ages who suffer from conditions like urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction, and pelvic organ prolapse can benefit from pelvic floor physiotherapy. People who have undergone pelvic surgeries, such as prostatectomies or gynecological procedures, can also find relief through this therapy.

I go to Chi Hai for physiotherapy and it’s been one of the best experiences I had. I’ve torn my calf muscle and sprained my calf and I have been going to him for some time now and everytime I leave, I always feel better.

A few months before my marathon, I injured my knee. Thankfully, Chi Hai guided me through my recovery. With his help, I was able to complete my first marathon in under 5 hours, just as I had hoped. I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a skilled physiotherapist.

James is hands down a top tier practitioner and specialist for sports related injury prevention and rehab and well being in general . I like the attention to detail when discussing various parts of the body and stretching or massaging based on what's needed, and in a way that can actually help your discomforts feel better.

Chi Hai has been an instrumental PT in the recovery for my knee injury. The knee pain is nearly gone thanks to the physio workout regimens he has taught me in the first session. In the first session he showed me clearly how to do every exercise and critiqued everything so I was following the best form possible. Post session he emailed me instructions with the sets and reps for each workout and also advised with YouTube videos for visual descriptions. The physio regimen was not easy, but thanks to pushing myself and staying dedicated to the routine, I feel much better now than 4 months ago. Now we're working on building back my strength and my ability to land safely when jumping. I'm really happy with my progress and I can safely say it is due to Chi Hai's great attention to detail in diagnosing my problems and figuring out the best solution based on my current level of fitness. The thought of being able to sprint full speed and grabbing rebounds while playing basketball again without the thought of pain is something I can't wait to look forward to. Thanks again Lu Strength for your help.

I’ve been to James for injury rehab and general maintenance and would highly recommend Lu Strength and Therapy! I’ve recently started seeing Alcina for physio as well, and both are super knowledgeable and practical in their treatment and prescribed self-care exercises. Their facility is great and has a large gym where they go over exercises and movement patterns with you as part of the treatment. Everyone at the clinic is also super friendly and welcoming.

I've been seeing James for a couple months now and I haven't been disappointed once. I injured my lower back a few months ago and with manual therapy and some prescribed exercises, the nagging pain I experienced went away. Very knowledgeable, genuine and overall a friendly guy. 10/10 would recommend especially if you're in the sport of weightlifting or powerlifting Update: 7 years later I’m still going to James and his team and they’re still doing a fantastic job!

Our facility is located conveniently in Scarborough (McCowan and Highway 401) and easily accessible from Toronto, Markham, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Pickering, Mississauga and Brampton
