What to expect on your 1st visit?
Your physiotherapist will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your posture, movement patterns, joint range of motion, core strategies, and coordination of your pelvic floor. The physiotherapist will analyze your assessment findings and explain how these results relate to the issues you are experiencing.
How is this done?
Your pelvic floor musculature can be assessed externally with palpation over your clothing. This external palpation is used to feel the activation patterns of your pelvic floor and teach you how to improve those patterns. Palpation is an important part of the assessment however, this can be omitted if you are not comfortable.
Our goal at South City Physiotherapy is to help you achieve your goals in a comfortable and compassionate way.
What comes next?
Once the coordination of the pelvic floor has been optimized, the physiotherapist will be help you improve your movement patterns, joint range of motion, core strategies, and help you reach your activity goals. In addition to education and active participation, the physiotherapist can incorporate other skills such as dry needling, acupuncture, manual therapy, and manipulation to help you reach your goals. Whether you goal is to go for a walk without hip pain, go for a run without leakage, safely exercise pre or post-partum, or regain pelvic floor control after surgery, we can help you get there..
At South City, our treatment success rate is very high, but there is always the possibility that some conditions cannot be resolved within our clinic. In such cases, you would be referred to a specialist outside of the clinic.
