Pelvic & Perineal Rehabilitation

Pelvic and perineal rehabilitation involves physical methods of strengthening and/or relaxing the pelvic floor muscles to enhance core stability and control over urination, bowel movements, and sexual function. The treatment also entails addressing the patient’s posture, breathing and lifestyle habits, which can play major roles and contribute to pelvic dysfunction.

From incontinence to uterus prolapse, rectum and anus-related problems, constipation, painful sexual intercourse or difficulty to penetrate, there is growing evidence that physiotherapy can alleviate, and in many cases cure these symptoms.

Azita Papaie has treated numerous patients suffering from pelvic and perineal dysfunction through visceral manipulation, pelvic floor massage, exercise routines, as well as advice on nutrition and lifestyle changes.

Her unique approach involves educating and empowering patients throughout all ages and stages of their lives. Through young adulthood, pregnancy, postpartum, menopause, pre/post surgery, and pelvic pain.

Pelvic floor physiotherapy requires an internal and external pelvic exam to evaluate and correct pelvic floor imbalances.

Azita sees your problem from a holistic perspective. It's almost spiritual how she treats the problem by listening to your body and believing in its own healing capacity. I highly recommend her.

Azita is amazing. I have gone through many therapists in the last 30 years to help me with pain in my back and legs, but the pain kept always coming back. I met her in 2016 and have been her client since. I worked with her for my back and hips problems, and she was able to identify and help me correct the root problems, instead of only prescribing the usual stretching exercises. She has a holistic approach that look at all the body rather than focusing on where the pain is located. In addition, she ensures i have the tools to heal my body rather than requesting i keep coming back for more visits. Azita is a lifelong learner. Over the years, i saw firsthand how she keeps learning and adding more tools and techniques to help her clients. I benefited greatly from her expertise and competence. I would highly recommend her services.

Azita is both personable and professional. I've had a couple different types of pain in different parts of my body from repetitive and long term stressors and weakness. All of it is massively better since seeing her. More than I thought possible. The nature and location of some pains are vulnerable/sensitive but Azita made me feel at ease right away by communicating clearly and respectfully before and throughout. As well as effectively relieving the pain.
