Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
With Taylored Training Kingston
Welcome to Pelvic Health with Taylored Training! We know that many people feel confused and often discouraged when it comes to issues surrounding pelvic health. Many of the topics are never talked about and you may feel that there is nothing that can be done.
This is NOT the case! Our pelvic health options are designed to help educate those who deal with a variety of pelvic health concerns and to help you explore what options are available to correct and improve those concerns.
What is Pelvic Health Physiotherapy?
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy (aka Pelvic Floor Physio) is a branch of physiotherapy that focuses on the assessment and treatment of any symptoms or conditions that involve the pelvis – including the muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, nerves and fascia of the pelvic girdle, low back, and hips. These structures all play a crucial role in providing support for our internal and genital organs. Recent literature has shown that this specialized form of physiotherapy is a non-invasive and effective form of treatment of incontinence, interstitial cystitis and painful bladder syndrome.

What is the Assessment and Treatment Process?
During assessment and treatment, we use both internal and external techniques to properly assess and treat the pelvic floor and associated structures. Treatment involves a combination of manual therapy, exercise, education and most importantly biofeedback. Your Taylored Training therapist will be with you throughout the process explaining each step to ensure you feel comfortable and confident in your treatment plan.
What Conditions can Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy treat?
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy can treat, improve, and oftentimes cure the following symptoms or conditions:
- Urgency, or a strong, compelling urge to urinate or defecate that may be difficult to control.

BPHE, MScPT, Lead Physiotherapist
“Pelvic floor dysfunctions are so incredibly common, but no one likes to talk about it. Most people simply accept that this will be their new normal, not knowing there is actually SO much we can do to improve and oftentimes cure any dysfunction.
This is why my mission as Pelvic Health Physiotherapist is educate and work with women (and men) so that they can live their best life. To improve their confidence, quality of life, and quite simply to help them do the things they love to do without the worry of pain or leaking.
I want to open up the dialogue, talk about these important issues that many may be nervous to talk about, and change lives!”
