Women’s Health

At Downtown Physiotherapy and Health, we recognize that women’s bodies undergo significant changes throughout time, which can affect a women’s health. Some of these changes like pregnancy and childbirth in the long run can develop very unique problems in the female body. Most women tend to believe that they are doomed to an eternity of pelvic problems, incontinence and bowel symptoms…but that’s not true!

Our dedicated physiotherapists located in downtown Vancouver are ready to help you put a stop to feeling uncomfortable. By providing our clients with a thorough assessment, our physiotherapists will determine what habits needs to be changed to ensure a correct pelvic floor technique so that you can resume your normal everyday activities with no more worries.
