Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy in Midtown Toronto

stretching a patient's legIf you are experiencing intermittent leakage when sneezing or coughing, noticing that intercourse is becoming more uncomfortable, or having problems with frequent urination, it is possible that you are suffering from pelvic floor dysfunction. This dysfunction can affect men and women at any age.

What Is the Pelvic Floor?

The pelvic floor is a crucial anatomical structure within your body, supporting several vital organs. Composed of muscles and connective tissues, it is pivotal in positioning the bladder, bowel (large intestine), and internal reproductive organs. Not only does it offer structural assistance, but it also facilitates essential bodily functions such as urination, defecation, and sexual intercourse.

Unfortunately, weakened pelvic floor muscles can contribute to various problems, including urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse.

At Urban Health Group, we specialize in restoring your pelvic floor health. We work with both men and women with various types of bladder, bowel, and sexual dysfunctions and provide prenatal and postpartum care. You don’t have to live in chronic discomfort.


Get to Know Our Pelvic Floor Specialist

Physiotherapist and pelvic floor specialist Urvashi Krishnan possesses an unwavering dedication to effecting positive changes in the lives of her patients. With extensive experience since 2006, she graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from Indraprastha University in India.

Starting With a Thorough Assessment

Urvashi will take a detailed medical history during your assessment and perform an external and internal examination. This will give us a better idea of the current state of your pelvic floor and how well it can contract and relax. She may also assess your lower back, joints, hips, and surrounding muscles. These areas can all contribute to pain and dysfunction. We will then discuss our findings and develop a customized action plan.
