Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

What Does a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist Do?

Pelvic health physiotherapy aims to relax tight, and/or strengthen weak pelvic floor muscles.  These muscles must be able to contract to maintain continence and to relax to allow for urination, bowel movements, and in women, sexual intercourse.

What are the 3 Functions of the Pelvic Floor

  1. Acts as a sphincter: prevents urinary and fecal leakage
  2. Provides support: supports our internal organs

  3. Provides Stability: stabilizes our back and pelvic girdle

Why Physical Therapy?

Approximately 3.3 Million Canadians  experience some kind of incontinence. 


Evidence shows that pelvic floor training should be offered as a first-line therapy to people with stress, urge, or mixed urinary incontinence. (Wilson 2005)

Patients may benefit from physical therapy if they are experiencing:

  • Accidental leakage of urine when coughing, sneezing, laughing or lifting

  • A frequent, sudden and uncontrollable urge to urinate

  • Pain in the pelvic area

  • Fecal incontinence

  • Organ prolapse

  • Pre-and postpartum related issues including back pain, Diastasis recti and sciatica 

  • Scar tissue concerns

  • Sexual dysfunction

  • Post prostatectomy incontinence

  • Colorectal conditions and constipation

  • Coccyx disorders

  • Prostatitis
