Pelvic Health Physiotherapists are Registered Physiotherapists who have specialized in the treatment of pelvis related concerns.
The pelvic floor consists of muscles that are important for your bladder, bowel, and sexual function. When these muscles are too tight or too weak, problems such as pain, incontinence and organ prolapse can occur. Using exercises, lifestyle modifications, education, hands-on treatment and pessaries, a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist can help to improve your pelvic floor function and decrease or eliminate your symptoms.
