Pelvic health physiotherapists are specially trained to treat women, men and children with pelvic health complaints. We can address a wide range of issues – the most common being urinary incontinence, but we also treat those with difficulty urinating, bowel incontinence, constipation, sexual dysfunction, pelvic pain (coccyx, vulvar, testicular pain, or pain during sexual activity, just to name a few) and for women, pelvic organ prolapse (when the bladder, uterus or rectum “fall” into the vaginal wall). Men and women with diastasis rectus abdominis (a decrease in support of the abdominal muscles) and sacro-iliac joint dysfunction or pain are also commonly treated by pelvic health physiotherapists.
