Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is a treatment of conditions that affect the pelvis and pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic Health Physiotherapy works as the first step of defence against incontinence and pelvic pain in women. The pelvic floor muscles work together silently to support the pelvic organs and facilitate bowel, bladder, and sexual function. When there is a disturbance in these muscles, pain and dysfunction take place.
Pelvic and Core Body Exercise
A physiotherapist specializes in treating pelvic floor dysfunction, identifies issues in the pelvic floor and helps alleviate symptoms and improves function through hands-on manipulation, exercise prescription, and education.
Naturopathic medicine focuses on an understanding of the origins of acute and chronic disease and works to support and assist the body’s natural ability to heal. Naturopathic Doctors identify the disease as a process, as opposed to an entity, and recognize that symptoms and signs of disease are a way of telling us that our bodies are imbalanced and not functioning optimally. Naturopathic assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the individual patient are accomplished by integrating modern and traditional care which includes clinical and laboratory diagnostic techniques, herbal medicine, acupuncture and Asian medicine, and clinical nutrition. Naturopathic medicine is evidence-based, informed by clinical experience, research and the individual patient’s unique health situation.
Acupuncture is the insertion of thin, metal needles to stimulate specific points of the body. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, Qi circulates in the body through a system of channels called meridians. Qi can be stimulated in the body through over 500 acupuncture points on the surface and flows to deeper organ structures. The stimulation of Qi in the meridians allows the body to rebalance from the negative impacts of daily life and disease. Science has now revealed that acupuncture affects the body through the nervous and hormonal systems.
