Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Woman doing physiotherapyRenee Quiring, Pelvic Health Physiotherapist, is the clinic owner of All Things Pelvic, which is located within our clinic.

This type of physiotherapy specifically focuses on the muscles that make up the pelvic floor. Renee Quiring, Pelvic Health Physiotherapist, also looks at the back, hips and muscles that intersect through the pelvic floor. She primarily treats those muscles by doing an internal exam.

Renee will perform the exam vaginally or rectally. She is rostered with the College of Physiotherapists and has taken extra training to be able to provide these exams.

Pre and Postpartum Care

Renee looks at preparing the pelvic floor for labor and delivery, any pelvic girdle pain or back pain or hip pain that people have during pregnancy. She also checks for Diastasis recti, which is a separation of the abdominal wall muscles. It’s mostly during the postpartum period when she will see that. Returning to sexual intercourse is sometimes an issue in postpartum as well.

Help for Returning to Sports

Returning to sports such as running can be difficult if you have pelvic floor issues. Renee can make sure that post-delivery or post-C-section that the muscles are engaging properly so you can get back to your favorite sport, and with strength and coordination.

Urinary and Fecal Incontinence

After delivery, many women experience urinary and fecal incontinence. Renee helps to address those issues by treating the pelvic floor muscles to ensure they’re an ideal length, and have normal range of motion and strength. Part of the care she recommends involves doing Kegel exercises, which most people think of when talking about the pelvic floor.

Painful Intercourse

Did you know that one-quarter of all women have pain with intercourse? Tampon insertion also can be painful for many teens and younger women. In those cases, Renee can teach them how to use a DivaCup.

Many menopausal women experience painful sex, as they often have vaginal dryness that might be an issue. Renee can make recommendations.

Prolapse

This is another issue either with women postpartum or menopausal. Women can experience prolapse postpartum from vaginal delivery, specifically when giving birth to large babies and with babies who come quickly. Women can develop a prolapse that means the bladder can fall into the vagina. The uterus can fall or the rectal area can fall into the vagina. That’s the time when Kegels are appropriate and beneficial.

Renee also can perform a pessary fitting. Pessaries are similar to a tampon but made of silicone and they help to support the prolapse.

Men’s Issues


It’s not just women who Renee helps but men too. For those who have had a prostatectomy, they often can have a weak pelvic floor and leaking. Renee can address these issues as well as any pain in the testicles or penis. She also can treat the urgency or frequency of urination.

For men looking for a natural way to address their ED, Renee can help. She teaches men how to use the muscles of their pelvic floor to assist with erection difficulties.

Children’s Issues

Renee also sees children beyond the normal age of bedwetting or kids with constipation issues. She will treat them using biofeedback, a neuromuscular feedback system. Renee will teach kids how to use biofeedback to strengthen their pelvic floor.

GI Conditions

If you have constipation, IBF or other GI issues, Renee can help. She uses rectal monography with balloon therapy. She can help teach people how to have good bowel movements.
