Pelvic Floor Therapy

What is Pelvic floor therapy?

Pelvic floor disorders, affecting up to 25% of adults, encompass conditions like urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and organ prolapse, with risks increasing due to factors such as age, pregnancy, or chronic constipation. Treatment options include lifestyle changes, medications, with physical therapy being a favorable choice. Pelvic health physiotherapy plays a crucial role in addressing diverse pelvic floor conditions, focusing on the intricate anatomy involving muscles, ligaments, nerves, and connective tissue that support various organs. This specialized form of physiotherapy is essential for a holistic healthcare approach, tailored to alleviate symptoms like urgency, constipation, and pelvic pain.

What to expect

Pelvic floor therapy differs from other types of physical therapy that people might be more familiar with, such as shoulder or knee therapy.


The first step is a consultation with a physical therapist. You can expect a private, one-on-one setting in which the therapist reviews your medical history, symptoms and goals and performs a physical exam. The exam may include assessments of your hips, spine, bony pelvis and pelvic floor muscles. Your comfort and privacy are always a priority throughout this process.


After the consultation, the physical therapist will work with you to create an individualized plan to address your pelvic health needs. Sessions could include exercises, stretches, manual therapy. All aimed to strengthen or relax your pelvic floor muscles. The number of sessions needed will vary, and each session is customized to address your needs and symptoms.
