Women’s Health and Pelvic Floor physiotherapy

The goal of Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy is to improve pelvic floor function through exercises, lifestyle modifications, education and hands on treatment to decrease and eliminate your symptoms. This therapy involves assessing and treating a group of muscles that are involved with urinary, bowel, and sexual function. If these muscles aren’t functioning properly this can lead to symptoms such as incontinence, increased urgency and/or frequency, retention (not being able to empty your bladder or bowels), and pelvic pain.

            • Urinary urgency
            • Dropped bladder
            • Chronic pelvic pain
            • Postpartum pain
            • Painful intercourse

 

Pediatrics

At Town Health Solutions, we believe that children get the most out of their rehab when they are engaged, challenged and most importantly having fun!! Our Pediatric Physiotherapy strives to improve and enhance your child’s development and physical functioning through creative and engaging exercises, which may look like a lot of fun and play. Our therapists use their neurological, orthopaedic and developmental skills to help reach their functional goals. We believe in “family centered care” and that rehab continues in the home as well. We will work with parents and caregivers so they can continue doing rehab in their home to further help their child grow and reach their full potential.
