About Treatment

Hormonal fluctuations associated with pregnancy, menstruation and menopause can affect the function of the pelvic muscles that support the bladder, uterus and rectum.

We all know that keeping our bodies fit and our muscles strong ensures better health and efficient bodily functions. Regrettably we are rarely taught the importance of keeping the pelvic muscles strong to prevent the symptoms many women accept as unavoidable. Even if you will be having a hysterectomy or bladder support surgery the outcome of the procedure will be enhanced if the muscles of the area are healthy and strong.

DO NOT buy into the advertising industry's promise that pills and pads will restore your freedom. Instead, strengthen the core and pelvic muscles.


What does treatment involve?

  • Private one-on-one consultation to discuss your individual issues and medical history
  • Education about the structure and function of the pelvic organs; bladder habits; and dietary triggers.
  • Internal assessment of the strength and endurance of the pelvic muscles
  • Assessment of posture and breathing patterns
  • Individualized progressive strengthening exercises for the pelvic and core muscles including integration of posture, breathing and dynamic activities
  • Biofeedback and/or Electrical Muscle Stimulation when indicated
  • Physiotherapy techniques to normalize tone and improve tissue mobility
