Pelvic Floor Therapy & Rehabilitation

Females and males of all ages can benefit from pelvic floor therapy and rehabilitation.

The pelvic floor muscles are just like any other muscle in our body. They can be weak or tight or suffer from disuse. The difference with having these dysfunctions in our pelvis is that the consequences of the dysfunctions will be different. The pelvic floor muscles are a hammock of muscles that attach from our pubic bone in the front of the pelvis to the tail bone in the back of the pelvis. Pelvic floor muscles serve many purposes including:
     • Giving support to our organs (bladder, bowel, uterus);
     • Giving support to our spine; and,
     • Controlling our bladder and bowel to prevent unwanted leakage.

We provide specialty pelvic floor therapy services to address pelvic floor dysfunctions for women and men including urinary/bowel incontinence, urinary urgency and frequency, night time frequency, constipation, pelvic pain, post-surgical pelvic pain and pain with sex. Through a comprehensive evaluation and individualized treatment program using a pilates-rehab based approach, improvements in pelvic health and overall quality of life can be achieved.
