Addressing Pelvic Floor Dysfunction


Your Pelvic Floor Is An Important Muscle Group

The muscles that control you core stability, bladder, birthing and sexual function are all found in the same place in your body: the base of the spine. It’s not uncommon for these muscles to tense up and wrap themselves around your urethra, rectum, or vagina. They are meant to act like a hammock for the bladder, uterus, prostate, and rectum.

Too much tension in these muscles can lead to incontinence and other associated symptoms. Pelvic floor physiotherapy is meant to relieve tension in this muscle group through targeted exercise, posture realignment, and acupuncture. Patients involved in this treatment will often be recommended for standard physiotherapy as well.

    How Does Treatment Work?


    We Start With A Simple Question: What’s Wrong?

    Working from your initial complaint, set of goals, or referral, we first perform an initial assessment. That initial physical assessment is done externally. The muscles are often to tense to perform an internal exam first. An internal exam follows the first steps of treatment.

    Once we have identified the issue, we create a treatment plan you’re comfortable with. It will be a reflection of what you want to take away from this treatment. Women planning to get pregnant, for example, are recommended to consult a pelvic physiotherapist right away. This treatment can aid in the re-alignment of the body, making birth easier, and improving the health of the baby.

    The first step, regardless of the triggering condition is to relieve muscle tension. This is done in a number of ways; it’s all based on the comfort level of the patient. We may recommend acupuncture for example. Acupuncture can relieve pain while stimulating circulation within the muscle, allow it to relax and loosen.

    If you suffer from any of the associated symptoms, call us today!
