The perineum is a muscle that supports all the organs of the abdominal area. Age, pregnancy, overweight, sedentary lifestyles and office work can greatly contribute to making it weaker.

A poor condition of the perineum can lead to urinary incontinence (UI), which is more common among women. In fact, depending on age, about 20 to 60% of women suffer from urinary leaks. However, the subject remains somewhat taboo, and women seldom talk about it believing that this is due to normal aging or childbirth. There are, however, effective treatments to reduce the causes and symptoms of urinary incontinence, among them, physiotherapy that works on strengthening pelvic floor muscles and bladder rehabilitation, which greatly reduces urinary incontinence.

A TYPICAL PERINEAL PHYSIOTHERAPY SESSION

Forcephysio provides a pelvic and perineal rehabilitation service. All treatments are preceded by a complete evaluation, which includes :

– A physical evaluation (e.g. posture, muscle strength, balance, respiratory patterns)

– A gynecological evaluation :

  •  Pelvic floor strength
  • Contractility
  • Pelvic floor muscle endurance
  • Health of vaginal mucosa
  • Etc.

 – Treatment of pelvic organ prolapse can also include a pessary trial.

A complete assessment allows us to target specific health issues and consequently tailor our treatments.

ANATOMY

The pelvic floor is the layer of muscles within the pelvis. Its main role is to support the pelvic organs (e.g. bladder, uterus, rectum, intestines), but it also plays a key role in continence and enhancing sexual pleasure. When contracted, strong and healthy pelvic floor muscles support the anal and urethral sphincters, helping control the release of bodily waste during exertion or when there is an urgent need. The pelvic floor muscles also have a connection to the brain and the bladder, and contracting these muscles make it possible to control pressing needs on a short-term basis. Healthy pelvic floor muscles also help support the organs located in the abdominal cavity, decreasing the risk of pelvic organ prolapse.
