Go from feeling constantly worried and anxious about your pelvic health issues, to forgetting you even had them!
Where some clinics might just provide physiotherapy options, our physiotherapists focus on pelvic health techniques that offer patients:
- Short and long-term pain relief
- One-to-one care with a heavy focus on gaining pain-free mobility and improved function
- Progression towards your long-term health goals
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy Treatment Plans That Makes A Real Difference
We know that no person is an island, so our team works together with you to create a pelvic health treatment plan that truly fits the needs of each individual patient.
Beyond the fact that we prescribe therapeutic exercises, especially for the patient and their injuries, we respect our patients too much to make them wait weeks for an appointment or to spend hours in the waiting room once they're here. In fact, many times we are able to schedule appointments for the same day.
Once you begin your pelvic health physiotherapy journey with Full Function Rehab & Wellness, we'll start the process by completing an assessment. That way, our team will be able to explain the manual therapy treatments that can benefit your situation.
If you're not quite sure that pelvic health physiotherapy can be of use to you, we offer a complimentary consultation to explain the pelvic health physiotherapy in Woodbridge that we offer and the benefits that they provide for patients. Best of all, physiotherapy is covered by most insurance providers.

On Your First Pelvic Physiotherapy Visit...
On your first visit to Full Function Rehab & Wellness, we will take a full medical history and discuss with you your specific symptoms, problems and treatment goals.
With your consent, your pelvic health physiotherapist will complete a physical assessment of the muscles, joints and tissues of the pelvic floor, hips and low back. This may include internal and external examinations to identify the affected tissues that may be contributing to your urinary, bowel or pelvic pain symptoms.
Your initial visit takes approximately 50 minutes which includes a comprehensive health history and will provide plenty of time for questions to ensure you have a good understanding of your condition and your treatment plan.
