Pelvic floor physiotherapy
Specialized physiotherapy is an effective means to prevent or treat pelvic floor dysfunction. Kegels are not always a solution for pelvic floor problems. Sometimes they do more harm than good, and often they are not performed correctly.
We can diagnose your issues, provide recommendations and treatment, and help you get back to your normal life. Pelvic floor physiotherapists have advanced, specialized training and experience treating men and women of all ages.
Sogand Hariri, DPT, MScSEM
Sogand has advanced training in
pelvic health physiotherapy.
Pelvic health physiotherapy can treat:
Did you know?
Painful bladder conditions (such as interstitial cystitis)
Stress urinary incontinence
Pelvic organ prolapse
Difficult or painful sexual intercourse
Pelvic pain during pregnancy
Post-partum scar tissue and dysfunction
Chronic prostatitis and testicular/penile pain
Pre- and post-prostatectomy dysfunction
Research indicates that pelvic floor therapy should be considered for stress urinary incontinence and urge incontinence before surgery/anti-cholinergic medications are considered.
Many patients are able to discontinue medication following pelvic health physiotherapy and a home maintenance program.
My Physiotherapy Story
For my pelvic and foot problems I began working with Sogand Hariri, in addition to participating in the LSVT BIG program with Aviva. Sogand warned me at the first appointment that my issues would not be solved quickly. I appreciated her frankness.
The pelvic therapy she provides gives me temporary symptomatic relief. She has also treated my feet with active release therapy. (I was also helped by Linda Kim, the chiropodist who works in the clinic.)
Sogand is an excellent physiotherapist and has special training in pelvic physiotherapy. I would recommend her highly for those with pelvic issues, which often accompany the more usual Parkinson’s symptoms. Thank you Sogand!
