Your Pelvic Health
The Bottom of the Bowl
Imagine that your pelvis is like a basket or a bowl. The sides of the bowl are made up of our large pelvic bones, and the bottom of the bowl (the “floor”) is made up of muscle and connective tissue, aka the Pelvic Floor Muscles (PFM).
Because of their unique placement inside the pelvis, the PFM play an important role in some of our most important bodily functions, including bladder and bowel function.
What is the
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of conditions that arise as a result of pelvic floor muscle dysfunction.
Incontinence (bowel and/or bladder leakage), pelvic organ prolapse and persistent pain in the back/hips/pelvis/genitals (including pain with intercourse) are all common types of PFM dysfunction. And physiotherapy can help!
Pelvic Health Physiotherapists (also referred to as Pelvic Floor Physiotherapists) have undergone additional post-graduate training and education in order to treat pelvic floor dysfunction. They are highly skilled practitioners who are committed to using evidence-based treatments to help people optimize their health and function.
What is Pelvic Health
I am a physiotherapist who is passionate about Pelvic Health. I earned my Masters in Physical Therapy (MPT) from the University of British Columbia in 2010, and worked in a variety of health care settings before focusing on Pelvic Health in 2015. I discovered the world of Pelvic Health Physiotherapy during my own journey through motherhood, and instantly knew I would dedicate my career to this very important cause.
I started incorporating Telehealth services into my practice in 2022 and saw firsthand that this can be a powerful way to reach people and to empower them to make meaningful change to their pelvic health at home! I am thrilled to now work exclusively via telehealth, and offer physiotherapy assessments and treatments to men and women across Ontario, Canada.
