External Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is an effective treatment for Pelvic floor dysfunctions which are very common in the general population.
Symptoms of urine leakage, sense of urgency, frequency or Pelvic pain (including groin and buttocks) are common dysfunctions that can be treated effectively with Pelvic Health Physiotherapy.
Treatment is individualized based on a comprehensive assessment and may include gentle external manual therapy for soft tissue release or to correct Pelvic biomechanics. Treatment may also include bladder and bowel education, relaxation techniques, exercises for Pelvic girdle and muscles, or Pelvic floor muscle re-education.
