Today we would like to discuss pelvic floor physiotherapy, a physiotherapy specialization that is only now gaining momentum in Québec pre- and post-natal care. If you are planning to have a baby or have already had one (or many lol) than this post is for you.
Did you know that you can do preventative pelvic floor physiotherapy while pregnant?
A pelvic health physio can help to manage many problems that may arise during your pregnancy such as: low back pain, sacroiliac pain, pubic pain, pelvic muscle tension and urinary incontinence. They can do a lot to help prepare you and your pelvis for delivery !
If you’ve noticed any urinary leakage with coughing, sneezing, or lifting during your pregnancy, make sure to consult a pelvic physio. Women with leakage during pregnancy are far more likely to have long term incontinence problems!
Did you know that it is NOT “normal” for a woman to have difficulty with incontinence after giving birth?
It’s never too late to see a pelvic floor physiotherapist! Urinary incontinence affects many women and can hinder you getting comfortably back to your workouts and activities. Pelvic physiotherapy is considered first line conservative treatment for urinary incontinence and can help tremendously in getting you back in control of your pelvic floor and bladder.
Did you know that pelvic floor physiotherapy is for everyone – men and women of all ages, including children?
Constipation and urinary difficulties can be present throughout the lifespan, and a pelvic floor physiotherapist will work with you to figure out where these difficulties are coming from. If your child is experiencing difficulties in these areas, you can receive coaching on how to assist a child with constipation difficulties as well as urinary and fecal incontinence. Everyone deserves to live a full life without the embarrassment caused by incontinence. Check out www.energieactivephysio.com or call 438-792-1200 to schedule an appointment.
