About Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
Pelvic floor physiotherapy is provided by Laura Disenhaus.
This type of physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of the pelvic floor which is a series of muscles, ligaments and fascia that sit like a basin at the bottom of your pelvis. They work together to support the pelvic organs, stabilize the pelvis and hip joints, assist in bowel and bladder control, and contribute to sexual arousal and orgasm. Assessment and treatment of the pelvic floor is done through external and internal palpation. The internal exam is vaginal and/or rectal if warranted.
Conditions often addressed include difficulty with urination or bowel movements, constipation, chronic pelvic pain (including interstitial cystitis, painful bladder syndrome), incontinence, and painful intercourse. As well. women may seek treatment for vaginismus, endometriosis-related pain, pelvic organ prolapse, infertility, and pre and postnatal care while men may seek treatment for painful ejaculation.
Pelvic health physiotherapy can only be performed by a specially trained physiotherapist who has undergone post-secondary education and is registered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario.
