What is pelvic health physiotherapy?
Pelvic floor dysfunctions include:
Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) is estimated to affect 50% of women who have given birth. A prolapse occurs when the tissues that hold the organ in place become weak. This results in a drop of the organ from its normal position.
Pelvic health physiotherapy can help! This physiotherapy treatment can relieve you of all the aforementioned problems.
Once we have established a diagnosis, your therapist will extensively discuss treatment techniques, goals and anticipated outcomes for you. At Sherway Physiotherapy, your medical condition will be assessed thoroughly, and a rigorous customized treatment procedure will be designed for you.
