How Can Pelvic Physiotherapy Help With Pelvic Pain and Other Symptoms and Conditions?
When you seek help from one of our Pelvic Floor Physiotherapists, first, we’ll try to understand more about your pelvic pain, symptoms or condition. Next, we’ll ask how long you’ve been struggling, when your symptoms started, and how they are impacting your life and relationships today. We’ll also try to understand what you have tried and your goals for the future.
Once we understand your condition and how it’s affecting your quality of life, we’ll look at how your body is working and what other factors may be at play. From there, we’ll develop a treatment plan that is specific to you and your unique situation. There is hope for healing, and you don’t have to suffer alone – we’re here to help!
