How can physical therapy help?
The goal of women’s health physiotherapy is to minimize pain and dysfunction. This is achieved through normalizing pelvic floor and surrounding lumbopelvic muscle activity, motor control and coordination. The focus is on appropriate functional strengthening to assist in pelvic girdle stability once neuro-muscular coordination and optimal muscle length are present. Evidence based education regarding pregnancy, postpartum care, sexual pain, proper bladder/bowel habits, postural needs, and ergonomics are also addressed to aid rehabilitative outcomes and improve your quality of life.
