Goals of Physiotherapy for Women’s Health Services

Research estimates that 3.3 million Canadians suffer from incontinence. Experts agree the first line of defense in treating your symptoms should be physiotherapy with specialized training in pelvic floor rehabilitation.

At Pleasantview Physiotherapy, we are trained to check your pelvis externally and internally to find the basis for your symptoms. By identifying the cause of your pain or incontinence, we can devise the best treatment plan to help you. At your first appointment at Pleasantview Physiotherapy, you can expect an internal exam.
