Pelvic & Perineal Rehabilitation
Pelvic and perineal rehabilitation is a branch of physiotherapy that requires post-graduate education. It involves physical methods of strengthening and/or relaxing the pelvic floor muscles to enhance core stability and control over urination and bowel movement, ameliorate sexual function and organ support. 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 pelvic floor physiotherapy is effective in treatment of these conditions.
Azita Papaie has treated numerous patients suffering from pelvic and perineal dysfunction through myofascial release techniques, pelvic floor massage, specific exercise routines, as well as advice on fitness routine and lifestyle changes.
Her unique trauma oriented approach involves educating and empowering patients throughout all 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. In certain cases, exclusive external pelvic exams and treatment are proven to be efficient and effective.
