Our personalised care

During the first session, the physiotherapist will explain the therapeutic options available to find a suitable solutions to your problem and will request your consent for treatment.

After carrying out a case history, overall testing, digital palpation and on the basis of objectives defined together with you, the physiotherapist will apply different treatment approaches:

  • Information on the structure and function of the pelvic floor using anatomical models
  • Therapeutic education
  • Raising awareness of the pelvic floor
  • Mobility and muscular training of the pelvic floor
  • Basic and specific exercises

The physiotherapist will use the following techniques, amongst others:

  • Biofeedback : using a probe connected to a computer to visualise the muscular contraction and relaxation taking place.
  • Electrostimulation : pelvic floor muscles with a proprioceptive role.
  • Digital palpation : assessment of muscular function, targeted strengthening, contraction resistance, awareness of the movement, relaxation and stretching.
