Pelvic Floor and Pilates Occupational Therapy

If you have any concerns about pelvic health, or are simply unsure if this is something you should be focusing on, a pelvic health check at Next Wave Therapy is a good starting point. After a comprehensive assessment you’ll be given a clear guideline on what is going on for you. If exercise based rehabilitation is needed this is offered in semi-private classes.

Building a strong pelvic floor foundation and then layering it into whole body movements like squats and bridges and push ups is the ultimate exercise routine for men and women with pelvic floor problems.

It is never too late, or too early, to start prioritizing your pelvic health. Most importantly, remember you are not alone in your experience and in your journey towards a healthy pelvic floor.
