At Synergy, all of our therapists have advanced qualifications in both orthopaedic and pelvic health. We are passionate about the prevention and treatment of pelvic health conditions, including:

  • pre-natal care and post-natal rehabilitation

  • chronic pelvic pain 

  • athlete pelvic dysfunction

  • stress and urge urinary and fecal incontinence

  • pain with intercourse

  • abdominal separation (diastasis recti)

  • prostate cancer prehab and postsurgical rehab

  • chronic prostatitis

  • chronic constipation

  • pre and post operative care, including but not limited to: hysterectomy, cesarean section, top and bottom surgery as well as gender reaffirming surgery

The impact of all of these issues can be reduced or eliminated, through the help of physiotherapy techniques such as strengthening, stretching, and trigger point release. If you are struggling with pelvic dysfunction, pelvic health physiotherapy can help you regain control, maximize your function, and improve your well-being. 

Wondering what to expect?

At your initial consultation, your physiotherapist will ask about your medical history and your current pelvic issues. Pelvic health physiotherapy typically involves internal examination of the vagina and/or rectum in order to assess and treat the region’s muscles and connective tissue. In addition to internal and external examination, clients also receive education about the pelvic floor and its function and dysfunction, as well as home exercises and a combination of home and clinical treatment techniques designed to help resolve their issues.

Many people find it difficult to discuss issues affecting the pelvic region, and our physiotherapists are committed to providing sensitive, confidential care. If there is anything we can do to help you feel comfortable during your Pelvic Floor Assessment or treatments, please let us know.  We are happy to communicate with your family doctor, gynaecologist or urologist.

All services are billed as Physiotherapy, and covered by many private health care plans.  Please note we do not direct bill.
