In this interview from March 2017, our therapist Nancy Dowker discusses with Leanne Cusack of CTV news how the pelvic floor muscles can affect bladder, bowel and sexual function. These are often emotional issues, not easily discussed. Nancy outlines some of the most common conditions that pelvic physiotherapists treat for women, men and children. She discusses the role of proper circulation, nerve function and muscular function. She describes how the pelvic floor participates in core support and how altered core mechanics can worsen bladder, bowel and pain issues. Finally Nancy comments on how profound the positive changes can be to people’s lives.
