Pelvic Health Conditions
Pelvic Health physiotherapy involves the assessment and treatment of the pelvic floor muscles, core, pelvis, low back, and hips. The pelvic floor muscles support the bony pelvis and internal organs- they help facilitate bladder, bowel and sexual functioning. Pelvic floor muscle functioning changes throughout life due to stress, trauma, childbirth, menopause and our general health. Pelvic health conditions consist of, but are not limited to: Urinary Incontinence, Bowel health, Pelvic Organ Prolapse, Painful Intercourse, Low back, hip, pelvic pain, Endometriosis and more.
Pre/Postnatal Pelvic Health
Pregnancy is a time of firsts, joy, and excitement. Women look forward to the first time they will feel their baby move, and anticipate the potential pregnancy-related symptoms that they might experience. However, many do not know how to prepare their pelvic floors for their pregnancy, labour and delivery, and postnatal stage. It is a topic that is not brought up enough, yet should be the standard of care in every pregnancy journey.
Men's Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
Aren’t pelvic floor exercises just for women?’ Think again.
In fact, there is a close relationship between the pelvic floor and male pelvic health, including sexual dysfunction, prostatectomy (removal of prostate) related urinary incontinence and pelvic pain, Non-Bacterial Prostatitis, and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, amongst other symptoms and conditions.
Pediatric Pelvic Health
It can cause a great deal of stress when a child is wetting the bed or experiencing daytime urinary leakage past a certain age. And while it is common for children who are 4 years old and older to experience pelvic health symptoms such as bedwetting, daytime incontinence, and chronic constipation, they do not have to live with it. In fact, the International Children’s Continence Society (ICCS) states that ‘treatment is not only justified but mandatory. Our mission at Mississauga Pelvic Health is to empower children and their families to understand the child’s symptoms/conditions, and to help resolve them.
