Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy Postnatal Care
Often, postnatal women will experience loss of bladder control, and weak abdominal muscles leading to other uncomfortable issues.
Pelvic health physiotherapy, also called pelvic floor physiotherapy, is a specialized form of therapy designed to treat the tissues, nerves, and muscles in the pelvic region which is the area between your belly button and your upper legs.
What a pelvic floor treatment addresses:
- improving your control over bladder and bowel function
- reducing the risk of bladder prolapse
- better recovery from childbirth and surgery
- increased sexual sensation
- increased social confidence and quality of life.
Corinne Langford, PT, is specially trained to work with postnatal people who are experiencing abdominal discomforts as a result of childbirth.
Corinne provides direct pelvic floor assessment and treatment where she will do one on one assessments, giving you the opportunity to discuss your individual concerns and questions.
A pelvic floor physiotherapy assessment may include an internal assessment, which will determine the state and functional activation of the pelvic floor muscles.
A personalized pelvic floor treatment plan is then created, with resources provided to help ensure success with your home exercise program.
