Chronic pelvic pain is one of the most common medical problems affecting women between 18 to 50 years old. It may mean pain in the lower abdomen; inner thighs or low back; post-partum pain; pain with intercourse; painful scars or adhesions; or pelvic muscle spasm or tightness.
Incontinence, an involuntary loss or leaking of urine, affects approximately 30 percent of men and women over the age of 60 and 80 percent of pregnant women. In both cases, physiotherapy can often help. Our physiotherapists are specialists in treating muscles throughout the body, including pelvic floor supporting muscles. They can identify and, in many cases, reverse or greatly reduce weakness and dysfunction within the pelvic floor muscles.
Our program begins with a detailed history, musculoskeletal screening, and evaluation of specific pelvic floor muscles.
