Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

Pelvic health physiotherapy or pelvic floor physiotherapy involves a thorough pelvic floor assessment and treatment of conditions involving your pelvic floor to help improve your body’s function and well-being.

Your pelvic floor muscles are the foundation of the body and a vital part of your core. When this whole unit of the core and pelvic floor are not working well or coordinating as they should, it may lead to pelvic floor dysfunction (such as pelvic floor tension or pelvic floor weakness, prolapse, incontinence, etc.), chronic pelvic pain issues or sexual dysfunction.

We work collaboratively as a cohesive team to ensure we create and follow through with individualized assessment and treatment plans for our clients.

Scientific literature supports the integration of a multi-modal or multi-disciplinary approach for many pelvic health disorders and that is exactly what we can provide for you.

Whether you are looking to take a proactive approach to your pelvic health to help prevent future issues, or motivated to resolve recurring pelvic symptoms, we will guide you through the process in a way that will help allay your fears and hesitations.

We know that not every client is comfortable or fully understands what is involved with pelvic health exams so yes, we will thoroughly explain the process and with informed consent, support you through your treatment, at your own pace and without undue pressure. We’ve got you!

Don’t take our word for it, see what our clients are saying

Delivering my baby girl was one of the most empowering and awe-inspiring moments of my life. Without the pelvic floor work I did with my physiotherapist this beautiful moment would have been much harder and scarier. Every woman should see a pelvic floor physio before giving birth, it just makes sense. You wouldn’t run a marathon without training, why would you give birth without training. It is definitely one of the most physically demanding things you will ever do.

Proactive Pelvic Health Centre was one of the best finds! At 63 years old I was starting to get urgency incontinence. My physiotherapist was kind and respectful as she walked me through the various techniques that would help with bladder function. Today I feel more confident and relaxed.

My son Theo is doing very well lately - we've had very few if any accidents in the few past weeks, so we would like to thank our pelvic physiotherapist who was truly wonderful to work with.  We had seen several doctors and specialists before coming to PPHC, but it was the exercises and suggestions our physiotherapist advised and making some minor changes to our routine that finally solved our issues.  It has been life-changing. Thank you, Leeana - you are very good at what you do and you are wonderful with kids.

Just have to give praise to the pelvic physio gods at Proactive Pelvic Health Centre! For the first time in a year since giving birth I can enjoy sexy-time again! After 6 weeks of pelvic physio I have ZERO pain. Sorry if its TMI but someone reading this is probably suffering and I hope my experience might help someone regain confidence and pleasure.

The pelvic work my physiotherapist taught me really made sense. She explained it well and if you follow the plan and do your exercises you will get results. My pelvic physiotherapist was the only healthcare professional to give me hope and tangible results for the management of my bladder pain syndrome.
