What is Pelvic Health?
Pelvic health is an important part of what we treat at The Running Physio. At our Toronto physiotherapy clinic, we know there are a lot of painful conditions that could impact the lives of many women.
Pain and additional issues surrounding the pelvic floor can occur for a number of reasons. It can be limiting and, for some people, even a bit embarrassing. It can hinder your daily life and prevent you from doing some of your daily tasks or activities you love.
Through our targeted programs, we can help reduce or eliminate the pain and symptoms you are experiencing. Don’t be shy – contact The Running Physio today to schedule your appointment.
Will your Pelvic Health services treat my condition?
If you are a woman suffering from occasional or chronic pelvic pain, physiotherapy can help. Pelvic pain can occur for a vast number of reasons, and a certain pelvic therapy known as “pelvic floor rehabilitation” can help reduce or eliminate the pain and symptoms you are experiencing.
Typical patients who would be strong candidates for our pelvic floor rehabilitation treatments include:
- Pregnant women
- Postpartum women
- Postmenopausal women
- Women with pelvic organ prolapse
- Women dealing with urinary or fecal incontinence
- Women dealing with pain during intercourse
- Women dealing with pain during menstruation

What does a Women’s Health treatment plan look like?
According to ChoosePT,
“Women’s health physiotherapists have specialized education and expertise in the evaluation and treatment of both acute and chronic conditions that specifically affect women.”
At your initial appointment, you will undergo a thorough physical evaluation and review of medical history. This will help your physiotherapist determine the best course of treatment for your needs. At The Running Physio, our services include:
- Education and myth busting – there’s a lot of bad info out there!
- Bladder training
- Neuro retraining (incorporating pelvic floor muscle activation during simulated daily activities).
- Pelvic floor muscle retraining.
- Muscle release (internal and/or external).
