Our Pelvic Floor Physiotherapists Miriam Haustein, Faraley Vander Schilden, Laura Werner , Eimear Brogan and Sarah Hubbs are health care providers who can provide you with valuable advice and an exercise program to help you control your bladder. After a detailed questionnaire and a physical evaluation of your pelvic floor muscles (the muscles that lie underneath the bladder), the Physiotherapist will sit down with you to explain how your bladder works, and what you can do to prevent urine leakage. Advice may include dietary changes, changes in the timing of your visits to the bathroom, and hints to help you decrease the urgency to empty your bladder. A pelvic floor exercise program will be set up for you, but first the physiotherapist will make sure that you understand how to do the exercises correctly. She may suggest the use of different techniques to help you with your exercise program.
You may see our Victoria Pelvic Health Physiotherapist once or twice for advice and a home program, or you may follow a training program with her for several weeks, depending upon your particular situation. Your doctor will be able to tell you whether physiotherapy is a good treatment option for your particular problem.
