Pelvic Health Physiotherapy in Grande Prairie

Pelvic health physiotherapy is provided by a trained physiotherapist who has taken post-graduate education focused on the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of pelvic health concerns. A thorough assessment by the physiotherapist will determine the correct course of treatment for you.

An internal exam may be required to properly diagnose and treat pelvic floor dysfunction. A discussion between you and your physiotherapist will determine if this is appropriate.  Contact us today for an appointment.
