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 is amazing! She is very professional and helped turn my TMJ into something controllable. She not only treats the problem during session, but she also gives you take home exercises so that you can help yourself as well. Would definitely recommend!

Azita is an excellent physio who is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She is thorough when doing the assessment and takes the time to listen. Her treatment along with prescribed exercises, stretches and teach me how to practice good form were extremely helpful in getting back on track for my right shoulder a few years ago. I am back for my left shoulder and I am confident she will do the same. I highly recommend Azita.

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.

I have been working with Azita over 10 years ago, and have benefited a lot from her knowledge base, open mindedness, and positive-practical approach to health.  Her end goal was always to support my physical health towards enjoying the activities that I was eager, but often hesitant, to lean into.  Her hands on approach has been helpful over the years. I also appreciate her diagnostic skills, her ability to listen, always giving practical suggestions towards the betterment of my overall strength and health.

Intuitive and experienced Azita found my injury and used her knowledge to treat the source not the symptom which was buried in the absence of use of muscles around the problem due to occupation and posture.Honestly she saved me from cortisone shots which would have eventually harmed my tissues and cartilage. I went from severe reduced mobility to about 95 percent. Mostly, because I’m not as diligent with my exercises :).She is really understated and modest. I highly recommend her for anyone needing Physio and specialized massage. She’s an excellent diagnostician.
