Whole Body Health

Many of us are unaware that the pelvic floor muscles have a substantial role in keeping our core strong and our backs healthy and consequently do very little to keep the pelvic floor muscles healthy and use them properly.

Live Confidently

It has unfortunately become all too common for people to think it is normal to pee a little when they exercise, dance, cough, or before they make it to the bathroom. Research supports the role that physiotherapists provide in the rehabilitation of the pelvic floor. The Cochrane Collaboration (2010) concluded that physiotherapy should be the first line of defence for individuals suffering from stress, urge and mixed incontinence.

Role of the Pelvic Floor Muscles

We all have a pelvic floor and it’s made up of muscles, ligaments, tendons and connective tissues that together support and control the bladder, bowels and reproductive tracts. Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialized treatment that addresses dysfunctions in this region. The pelvic floor muscles resemble a bowl and act as a sphincter to prevent urinary and fecal incontinence.

They also play a vital role in holding and supporting some of our internal organs, while also stabilizing our back and pelvic girdle. The muscles that make up the entire pelvic floor must be able to contract to prevent leaking and relax to allow urination and bowel movements. If the muscles of the pelvic floor get too tight, issues such as frequent urination, urgency, or even constipation may occur.

If the muscles become too weak, we may again see incontinence or even pelvic organ prolapse.

Questions

One of the essential parts of your pelvic floor treatment will be education. Our goal is that you understand your own health and give you the tools you need to take back control. Besides, specific exercises, manual techniques, modalities such as Biofeedback and functional movements and return to sport guidelines may be used as part of your personalized treatment plan. Please note that an internal exam is a vital part of what we do.

The muscles of the pelvic floor are, in fact, internal muscles. We cannot feel them from the outside. Research has shown that doing an internal exam is the best way to assess the pelvic floor muscles and ensure that strengthening exercises are being done correctly. If you are uncomfortable having an internal exam or are not suitable for an internal exam for any reason, please speak to us and we can find an approach that works best for you.

No worries at all! We can still do the same exam.

Our dedicated Pelvic Floor Health team utilizes a painless specialized biofeedback machine used on the outside of the body. This technology allows for much more comfortable, effective, and less invasive treatment options.
