Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

What is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?

Pelvic floor physio is often defined as the practice of training and strengthening a person's pelvic floor muscles, but it is important to remember it isn’t ALWAYS about strengthening— sometimes it’s about relaxing tense muscles or addressing pain. Plus, the pelvis has a lot more to it than just the pelvic floor muscles and a lot of other areas of the body also interact with and affect the pelvis. At Shift Physiotherapy & Wellness we assess and treat the whole person, not just one body part.
