Airdrie Physiotherapry

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy is important. Life events such as being pregnant, giving birth, stress, trauma, and surgery can affect the strength and coordination of these muscles. Many people with pelvic floor dysfunction have not had children.

What is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?

Pregnancy Care & Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

We treat (and help to prevent!) bladder prolapse (cystocele), bowel prolapse (rectocele), and uterine prolapse. Embrace can help you prevent or recover from surgery. Pelvic organ prolapse can affect your activities, how you feel about your body, and your life. We’ll use the best evidence to help you support your pelvic organs and get back to what you love. Healing prolapse isn’t all about kegels. We’ll assess you from head to toe from your posture, breathing, pelvic floor and whole body strength, and mechanics.

Pregnancy

PostPartum Care

Pelvic Health & Physiotherapy

At Embrace Pelvic Health Physio and Massage, we help people heal after birth by taking a holistic approach to your health. We look at your pelvic floor, posture, breathing, and strength to help you return to activities you love. Embrace will help birthing people alleviate back pain, safely return to fitness, have pain free and pleasurable intercourse, and stop leaking. We will check your abdomen for a diastasis rectus abdominis and put your on the path to recovery. We will have you achieve your functional goals.

Bladder and Bowel Concerns in Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Leaking is common, but not normal. Learn how to improve your pelvic floor muscles, your posture, and breathing to alleviate leaks, and reduce urgency/frequency. Leaking isn’t all about kegels and pelvic floor muscle strength. It’s about posture, coordinating your pelvic floor muscles to work at the right time, breathing, correctly using your abdominal muscles, and timing.

Constipation can be caused by many body functions from beginning to end sort to speak. The pelvic floor can be a cause or contributing factor. Many people suffer from not knowing how to push to move their bowels, accidentally squeezing their pelvic floor muscles, and sitting with incorrect posture all leading to constipation. We will teach you the correct habits and techniques to get your bowels moving regularly.
