PHYSIOTHERAPY

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

 

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of conditions that affect the pelvis and pelvic floor muscles.   Evidence supports Pelvic Health Physiotherapy as the first-line defense against incontinence and pelvic pain for all adults.

 

The pelvic floor muscles work together silently to support the pelvic organs and facilitate bowel, bladder, and sexual function. When there is a disturbance in these muscles, pain and dysfunction can occur.

A physiotherapist specialized in treating pelvic floor dysfunction can properly identify issues in the pelvic floor and help alleviate symptoms and improve function through hands on manipulation, exercise prescription, and education.

Pediatric Physiotherapy

 

Pediatric physiotherapists treat a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions in different settings, from acute care hospitals, to the community and schools. Pediatric physiotherapists assess, diagnose and treat neurological, developmental, cardiorespiratory, pelvic health and orthopedic conditions in children up to 18 years of age, with a focus on improving function and increasing independence.

 

Physiotherapy has a positive and significant impact on pulmonary function, motor control, muscle strength, and physical endurance in pediatric patients with chronic conditions such as cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, and juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Physiotherapists treat infants with torticollis, gross motor delays, muscle spasticity and developmental coordination disorder. Physiotherapy interventions focus on movement and improvements in function to increase both the child’s and family’s quality of life. Improved function and involvement in daily activities provides more opportunity for social engagement. 

 

Pediatric Pelvic Health Physiotherapists assess and treat children who suffer from a number of different pelvic issues including bed wetting, and  urinary and fecal incontinence.  Through education, bladder and bowel retraining, and a focus on developing functional pelvic floor muscles,  children learn how to be continent through day and night.
