Pelvic health physiotherapy is a unique speciality within the physiotherapy framework to help restore many common dysfunctions of the pelvis region. Physiotherapist Keira is trained to check your pelvis internally via a vaginal and/or rectal examination. This is the gold standard to determine optimal functioning of the muscles, nerves, and organs within the pelvic floor.

  • Women's Health Physiotherapy: Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy is NOT just for mothers! The pelvic floor is made up of muscles just like the rest of your body, this means it can be dysfunctional too! These dysfunctions include hernias, scar tissue, and pain from weak or overactive muscles. The pelvic floor can also be effected by hormonal changes, physical activity, and stress level, just to name a few! At Equus Physio Ltd. we encourage women of all stages in life to come in for an assessment.

  • Prenatal Physiotherapy: Growing a baby causes a lot of changes in the body. Pelvic floor physiotherapy will help to maintain strong muscles (core and pelvic floor) and keep both you and the baby healthy! Physiotherapy at this stage can help with back pain, pelvis discomfort, and prepare your body for labour.

  • Postpartum Physiotherapy: Postpartum does not only mean within weeks of labour! Your baby can weeks old or moved out and married and yet postpartum physiotherapy can still be beneficial especially if you pee a little when you sneeze? Have an abdominal separation? A perineal tear during labour? Had a caesarian? As long as you have been cleared by your doctor at your six week check-up, physiotherapy can help with all these conditions and more!

  • Multiples Physiotherapy: Having multiples puts the body under stress that having a single baby does not. Learn to gain the strength required to carry not only the babies but also everything that comes with having newborns. 

We understand that pelvic floor physiotherapy can seem intimidating. Keira takes every precaution to ensure her clients feel safe and comfortable!
