For a lot of people, the function of the pelvic floor is not well understood. If asked to contract the pelvic floor muscles, the majority of people fail to engage the correct muscles.
A healthy pelvic floor needs to be able to contract and to relax when necessary and be strong enough to oppose the pressure coming from the internal forces pushing downward (intra-abdominal pressure). Pelvic floor rehabilitation aims to help clients properly recruit, strengthen and optimize their pelvic floor through methods such as verbal, manual, and proprioceptive feedback, Real-time Ultrasound, habit re-training and education, and customized exercise programs.

You should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to your pelvic floor physiotherapy session. It is also recommended to wear clothing that allows easy access to the pelvic area for assessment and treatment. If an internal examination is warranted and consented to, sheets and appropriate draping will be provided by your Physiotherapist.
Pelvic floor physiotherapy should not be painful. At Reformotiv, your verbal and physical body’s consent to treatment will be honoured by your Physiotherapist. Your physiotherapist will work with you to ensure that the treatment is comfortable and effective.
The duration of a pelvic floor physiotherapy session varies depending on the patient’s condition and treatment plan. Typically, a session lasts 55 minutes for the initial assessment and 25-55 minutes for follow-up appointments.
During a pelvic floor physiotherapy session, your physiotherapist will perform a thorough medical history (including bowel and bladder function), discuss your concerns and goals, evaluation of your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan. The treatment may involve a range of exercises and techniques, including pelvic floor muscle exercises, manual therapy, and education on proper bladder and bowel habits.
The time it takes to see results from pelvic floor physiotherapy varies depending on the severity of the condition, the patient’s ability to integrate the cues and exercises into their daily life, and the patient’s overall response to treatment. Some patients may see improvements after only 1 session, while others may require more extended treatment.
Most extended health insurance plans cover physiotherapy services, including pelvic floor physiotherapy. However, coverage varies depending on the insurance provider and the patient’s plan. We recommend checking with your insurance provider to determine your coverage.
A referral from a doctor is not required to receive pelvic floor physiotherapy. However, some insurance providers may require a referral for coverage. We recommend checking with your insurance provider to determine your coverage requirements.
