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.

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.

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.

I’ve been seeing James for a couple months now and I haven’t been disappointed once. I injured my lower back during deadlifts a few months ago and with manual therapy and some prescribed exercises, the nagging pain I experienced went away. He also continues to check up on my progress to ensure that training is going smoothly!

I was having difficulty with the butt wink on the bottom of a squat, which caused pain in my lower back after squatting. After James had worked on my hamstrings and calves, I noticed an immediate difference in terms of my posture and had completely fixed my butt wink in the bottom of a squat.

As I increased my intensity and volume during my workouts, I started noticing my posture and muscles tightening up throughout my entire body. Deep tissue massage along with corrective exercises has really helped with my muscle tightness and target those deep knots that I couldn’t touch on my back with a foam roller and lacrosse ball.
