Here at Cornerstone Physiotherapy’s Pelvic Health Clinic in Toronto, we have a team of specially trained Physiotherapists who are rostered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario to provide Pelvic Health services. These therapists help people every day who suffer from urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, prolapse and many other common pelvic dysfunctions. If you have been diagnosed with a pelvic health problem, Physiotherapy is often the treatment of choice, and Cornerstone Physiotherapy in Toronto is an excellent place to start.

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is sometimes referred to as Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy or Women’s Health Physiotherapy.

Pelvic Floor Problems Are Common

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.

What To Expect At Your First Appointment

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.

What our pelvic health clinic patients say...

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!

What our pelvic health clinic patients say...

Professional, courteous, clean, comfortable, and knowledgeable. I came here for pelvic health treatment for my pregnancy. I was assigned to Ellie and she was great. She made me feel confident about her practice and treatment and didn’t feel uncomfortable in any way. I highly recommend this location and Ellie Hong.

What our pelvic health clinic patients say...

I had been experiencing some postpartum pelvic pain for quite some time (almost 8 months) before I sought treatment, hoping it would go away. After doing some research, I chose North York Cornerstone Physiotherapy….. My only wish is that I had been aware of my options regarding pelvic floor therapy prior to and during my two pregnancies (my OB had told me the pain I was experiencing was normal and would go away – it didn’t obviously). That would have helped me prevent the pain I experienced and prepare for an easier delivery. I highly recommend North York Cornerstone Physiotherapy. The staff are quite friendly as well.

Common Symptoms Of Pelvic Dysfunction

  • Incontinence – Leakage of urine or feces.
  • Urgency – A strong urge to urinate or defecate.
  • Urinary Frequency – Having to urinate so often that it disrupts your routine.
  • Chronic Pelvic Pain – pain, burning or pressure in the pelvic region.
  • Constipation – difficulty passing stools

Pelvic Physiotherapy Treatment

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.
