Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

A safe & non-invasive alternative to regain function and vitality

  • Incontinence, erectile dysfunction, pelvic or groin related pain are all symptoms of underlying conditions.

  • Some others resort to surgical or other invasive interventions for which the results may vary.

  • The focus of the treatment is on the symptoms without addressing the cause, a patient may need to depend on related healthcare products for life.

  • A Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist has received advanced training to assess the patient and offer a safe non-invasive treatment with specialized equipment.

  • Results are such that patients can regain their independence and are able to engage in activities that they used to do years ago.

Special Conditions Treated

  • Urinary Incontinence in Men

  • Pain due to Prostatitis

  • Pelvic or groin pain due to Nerve Entrapment (Pudendal Neuralgia)

  • Overactive bladder, Continued dribbling after voiding that feels complete

  • Erectile Dysfunction after treatments for Prostate Cancer

  • Related symptoms due to Core strength weakness

Symptoms may be the same, but the required treatment can differ

  • A ‘one for all’ design of treatment does not work in this case. Two different patients can report symptoms of pain or sexual dysfunction.

  • However, their treatment plan may differ. One patient may need a treatment plan that strengthens but the other may benefit from a treatment plan that stretches the tight pelvic floor muscles to reduce tone.

  • Some others may have internal scar tissue which will have to be specifically treated.

Using Real-Time Ultrasound Imaging as Biofeedback to achieve better results

  • Using Biofeedback is a recent advance in treatment methods that helps both the patient and physiotherapist see the results of strengthening treatment right away.

  • This advanced tool senses the muscle effort and provides results that give the patient and physiotherapist a measurable parameter.

  • These measurements help to understand the efficacy of the treatment and appropriate progression or changes as necessary.

Computerized Lumbar Traction

  • DRS Traction System reduces acute Low Back Pain

  • When traction forces are applied to the spine there is usually some drop in pressure within the spinal discs - the fibrocartilage spacers between each of the spinal bones (vertebrae).

  • The DRS traction can help reduce disc bulges and herniations as well as relieve pressure on other spinal joint structures.

  • The DRS traction can also reduce pressure on nerves between vertebrae and help decrease symptoms such as pain, numbness or tingling that radiates into one or both legs due to lumbar disc/joint problems.

  • Patients with spinal disc degeneration ("degenerative disc disease") may benefit from a traction based treatment as this may be helpful in improving the flow of nutrients to the discs.
