Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

What is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?

Pelvic floor physiotherapy focuses on the assessment and treatment of the pelvic floor muscles. Located between the hip bones and sacrum, they support the pelvic organs including the bladder, colon, and uterus. Our Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy offers custom, one-on-one treatment plans that aim to holistically improve the health of our clients experiencing issues with their pelvic floor.

We understand that pelvic floor issues can take a toll on your overall well-being, and we’re here to walk alongside you with expert guidance and professional care. Whether you’re suffering from pelvic pain, dysfunction, or seeking support during or after pregnancy, VanCity Physio can help you identify and explore the treatment you need to reach your goals.


If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort in your pelvic area, or have any type of pelvic floor dysfunction, you may benefit from pelvic floor physiotherapy. Pelvic floor physiotherapy is for all ages and genders. 

Conditions we can address:

• Prenatal, perinatal, and postpartum (including c-section recovery)

• Incontinence

• Pelvic girdle pain

• Lower back pain and SIJ pain

• Diastasis recti

• Prolapse

• Painful intercourse

• Pelvic heaviness or prolapse

• Overactive bladder and urgency

• Erectile dysfunction

• Post prostatectomy care

• Coccyx pain or injury


Your pelvic floor muscles bear the important task of supporting your organs (bladder, uterus, and intestines), contributing to healthy sexual functioning, and controling urination and defacation. The proper functioning of pelvic floor muscles means better health and wellness overall. Our specialists will collaborate with you to gather information about your history, help you understand the cause behind your symptoms, and provide you with a customized treatment plan that helps you regain control and find the right path forward.


Your physiotherapist will conduct an initial assessment and work with you to set personalized therapy goals. Depending on the reason for your visit, you will typically be seen weekly for 3 - 4 sessions, with reassessments scheduled every 4 - 6 weeks until you are satisfied with your progress and your goals are met. We understand that every client is different, so your program will be thoughtfully designed with your recovery in mind.
To better understand the current condition of your pelvic floor, your physiotherapist may suggest an internal examination. However, your comfort and consent is our top priority. You and your physiotherapist will explore assessment and treatment options together to ensure you feel supported every step of the way.


Prior to the session, please read and sign the consent form emailed out to you. Come to your session in appropriate attire to exercise. Whenever starting a new physiotherapy program, bring a list of any medications to your first appointment, along with any relevant X-rays and MRIs. If you’re experiencing pain symptoms beforehand, make a note of them and be sure to tell your therapist ahead of time.

Masks are manditory for in-person treatment, in compliance with BC's mask mandate. Please read our Covid-19 procedures for more information.


After your session, your physiotherapist will discuss an appropriate timeline for regular maintenance of your one on one sessions, and will email you the exercises and advice discussed during your session. If you have any additional questions, you can contact them directly via email.
