Postnatal Physiotherapy Assessment

A postnatal physiotherapy assessment (virtual or in-clinic) is required prior to starting the classes.

The Postnatal Physiotherapy Assessment includes screening for:

  • low back, thoracic or pelvic pain or pubic symphysis pain
  • abdominal weakness
  • prolapse
  • urinary incontinence
  • pelvic floor muscle hypertonicity and/or weakness
  • perineal scars and c-section scars
  • breathing assessment
  • cuing for optimal core muscle recruitment
  • posture and body mechanics
  • also includes an internal pelvic floor examination

To schedule your prenatal physiotherapy assessment please call 613-291-2956 or book a pelvic health assessment online. Ideally this is booked with Monate but can be done with another therapist at our clinic or another pelvic health physiotherapist and your information can be passed along to integrate the care for maximum benefits of the class.
