Our Kid-Friendly Approach:

  • No Internal Exams: We focus on external assessment and gentle techniques.
  • Playful Exercises: Engaging activities help strengthen pelvic floor muscles and improve coordination.
  • Surface EMG (SEMG): This technology provides a fun and visual way for kids to connect with their pelvic floor muscles. They'll see how their muscles work through the use of games to help them with their muscle activation and coordination.
  • Education and Support: We work with you and your child to understand their body and develop healthy habits that are realistic and meaningful to them.
  • Empowering the Child and Family: Our goal is to work as a team so that parents and children can overcome challenges, gain confidence, and experience a better quality of life.

Understanding Internal Pelvic Exams in Physiotherapy

Professional and Respectful

While internal pelvic exams might sound daunting, they can be a valuable assessment tool for pelvic health physiotherapists to evaluate strength, coordination, and identify areas of tension in the pelvic floor.

Exams are always performed in a private, comfortable environment with your full consent. We'll explain every step and only proceed with your full understanding and consent. Alternate external options for assessment can also be offered (link to real-time ultrasound). Our experienced physiotherapists will always prioritize your comfort and well-being.
