What is Pelvic Floor Physio?
Many conditions, traumas, and even aging can lead to discomfort in the pelvic region. Pelvic floor physio is a specific form of physical therapy that strengthens, tightens, or loosens your pelvic floor muscles based on your particular needs.
During the sessions, you will safely and appropriately strengthen pelvic floor muscles, which can help with a wide variety of conditions or injuries.
You will work with one of our certified and trained physiotherapists who will use therapeutic exercises and a wellness program to help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
The specific exercises and stretches will be hand-picked for your individual needs, meaning you’ll receive care and treatment that’s meant for you and you alone.
Along with specific exercises and stretches, pelvic floor physio will provide you with a wellness and lifestyle plan to decrease your pain and get you back to a normal life.
What Should I Expect in My Consultation?
At BodyWorx Vitality, we believe in giving you individualized care when you need it. Our team of pelvic floor physio experts is dedicated to providing you with a professional and confidential consultation that will leave you understanding your next steps.
We will first gather information on the specific pain or conditions you’re experiencing and compile a medical history to understand how to best address the pain.
Before starting any pelvic floor muscle exercises or stretches, we will take a look at your posture, assess the strength around your hip, back, and pelvis, and assess your flexibility.
Once we fully understand your current pain and physical condition, we will provide you with a pelvic floor physio treatment plan.
You can also ask your consultant specific questions about treatment options that will help you choose a plan that works best with your lifestyle and abilities.
What Should I Wear to My Pelvic Floor Physio Session?
Once you’ve had your initial consultation, you should expect to have physically active sessions to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. These sessions will likely require light-moderate exercise, meaning you’ll need to wear something comfortable.
It might be best to wear exercise pants or leggings to allow you to move and stretch in many ways without worrying about showing too much skin on accident.
Try to wear light-weight clothes when possible to prevent overheating while strengthening your pelvic floor.
The most important thing is to be comfortable during the pelvic floor physio sessions. Our trained physiotherapists will use their professional knowledge and experience to help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles while making sure you’re comfortable and not at risk of any other injury.
