Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy Treatment
Toronto & Etobicoke Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist
What is Pelvic Health Physiotherapy Treatment?
Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a first line treatment for individuals experiencing symptoms of pelvic dysfunction such as urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, prolapse, diastasis recti and more.
Although common, such disorders are seldom discussed and often assumed to be something that you ‘just have to live with’.
Signs you may benefit from Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy
Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy can help support your health by providing treatment for common pelvic symptoms that are not commonly discussed. These benefits can range from regaining control of your bladder, supporting your core pelvic muscles, improvement in circulation and more.
Some indications of needing Pelvic Floor Physio include:
- Urinary incontinence, frequency, urgency
- Pain in pelvic region, perineum or rectum
- Sexual dysfunction
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Chronic pelvic pain or low back pain unexplained by other sources

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy Services
Prenatal Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy
Prior to childbirth, pelvic physiotherapy can help you strengthen the pelvic floor to prevent common issues such as incontinence, low back pain, increased pelvic pressure and more. As the end of your pregnancy approaches, we begin to focus on stretching the pelvic floor muscles by working on perineal massage. Our highly-trained registered pelvic floor physiotherapists can also guide you through a range of positions and hand-on maneuvers to alleviate discomfort during labour.
Urinary Incontinence is a condition that is common but something you don’t have to live with. While not a common topic of discussion, women often experience bladder leakage after pregnancy or hormonal changes. Pelvic floor exercises are key to restoring strength in the area as guided by your pelvic floor physiotherapist. Using exercises, and treatment techniques, your physiotherapist can help you regain your pelvic floor health.
Postpartum Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy
Six weeks postpartum most women are given the ‘all clear’ signal from their doctor to resume regular activities. Without proper rehabilitation of the muscles, urinary incontinence, low back pain, pelvic organ prolapse, or pain with intercourse can develop. Working to strengthen your pelvic floor and guide you back to regular activities, our pelvic floor physiotherapist can help restore and function using a personalized approach.
Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy for Menopause
Pelvic floor therapy for menopause can relieve or even prevent common concerns, from painful sex and urinary incontinence to more serious conditions like pelvic organ prolapse. Strength training is another area to seek the help of a physiotherapist as aging can contribute to bone density loss and osteoporosis. Proper exercises prescribed by a physiotherapist can correct postural problems, maintain a healthy weight and build muscle for an active healthy life in menopause.
