Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is sometimes referred to as Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy or Women’s Health Physiotherapy.
An enormous number of people suffer from pelvic health dysfunction and yet many patients feel quite alone with their problem. 30% of women suffer from urinary incontinence and more than half have minor organ prolapse following vaginal childbirth. Most people have heard of, and tried Kegels. Unfortunately, if they have not been taught with internal feedback many people are doing them incorrectly! It’s important to seek care from an experienced professional.
We take your privacy seriously. All treatment takes place in our nicely appointed private treatment rooms.
Your physiotherapist will begin by taking a detailed history of your problem. We know that not everyone is comfortable talking about their pelvic health. Rest assured that our therapists treat pelvic dysfunction every day and will help you feel that you are not alone. Pelvic health problems are incredibly common and highly treatable.
After a detailed history, there will be a physical examination. This will include examination of the joints, muscles and ligaments of your pelvis, low back and hips. It is recommended that all pelvic health patients undergo an internal exam to properly assess the pelvic floor, as many of these muscles are only accessible internally. However, if a thorough assessment is not tolerated initially, we can start with an external approach and progress to internal when appropriate. In total, at this assessment visit, you will spend about an hour with your Physiotherapist. Together you will develop a treatment plan that will address your specific problem and map out your road to recovery.

Courtney is an amazing Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist! She is personable, knowledgeable, and makes you feel completely at ease. Not only did she help me prepare for Childbirth, but also helped me recover afterwards. My recovery was so much faster because of her knowledge and care. The admin staff are amazing as well – answering emails quickly and always being friendly, polite and welcoming.
I had a great experience with Rosalina. She helped me learn how to relax my pelvic muscles, which can be a little invasive, and hard to learn. Not once did I feel uncomfortable. Rosalina is professional and caring… felt like I was being looked after by a friend. Thank you Rosie!
I had been experiencing postpartum pelvic pain for some time before I sought treatment, hoping it would go away. After some research, I chose North York Cornerstone Physiotherapy. My only wish is that I had been aware of pelvic floor therapy prior to my two pregnancies. That would have helped me prevent pain and prepare for an easier delivery. I highly recommend Cornerstone Physiotherapy.
I had a wonderful experience at Cornerstone Physiotherapy. The staff are very friendly and professional. Laurel and Rosie are skilled physiotherapists, and they significantly helped me to deal with muscle issues that I have experienced for more than a decade. I highly recommend this clinic.
Super professional staff. Accommodating, affordable and clean. The Pelvic floor therapy I received truly kickstarted my journey to pain relief.
At Cornerstone, each patient is provided with a customized treatment plan that is designed to address their specific problem. Your treatment will always include education about your problem and may also include manual (or hands-on) therapy, bowel and bladder tracking and a set of specialized exercises designed specifically for pelvic floor problems. Some patients will benefit from electrical stimulation to help their pelvic floor muscles function properly. This is done with a metallic probe that is placed internally and designed to deliver just enough electrical current to stimulate your muscles.
