Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy
We are now offering Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy at KOPI!
The pelvic floor consists of nerves, fascia and muscles extending from the pubic bone to the tailbone. These muscles assist with bladder and bowel function, sexual function, and core strength and stability. Pelvic floor dysfunction can be caused by hypotonicity (weak muscles) or hypertonicity (tight muscles).
Kegels are NOT always recommended for pelvic floor problems, and if done incorrectly can do more harm than good!
Pelvic floor dysfunction can contribute to incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and pelvic pain. A physiotherapist with specialized training in pelvic health can assess and treat the pelvic floor through an internal examination followed by an individualized treatment plan. Pelvic floor physio can be an integral part of pre- and post-partum care to prevent dysfunction and restore pelvic health.
1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience incontinence. In Britain, the National Institute of Health has declared that every person considered for surgical correction of stress incontinence should first be seen by a pelvic health physiotherapist.
These issues are COMMON, but NOT NORMAL and can be treated.
Conditions treated include:
- Urinary incontinence (stress, urge, or mixed)
- Prolapse (bladder, rectum, or uterus)
- Persistent pelvic pain
- Interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome)
- Chronic prostatitis
- Dyspareunia (pain associated with intercourse)
- Pudendal neuralgia
