⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Marni G.

I have been coming to Noshin for almost a month now and am SO happy I came! I am currently pregnant and wanted to make sure my pelvic floor was strong for pregnancy and postpartum to avoid numerous complications and Noshin has been so incredibly helpful. She is so knowledgeable in her field and always explains everything to me in detail. She also helped get to the root cause of some of the pains I was experiencing in pregnancy such as constipation, calf cramps, back pain and more. She is also helping me strengthen my core and help me prepare me for birth, including giving exercises to get baby into the correct position and more. If you are pregnant or postpartum I cannot recommend her more! She is a wealth of knowledge and has been such a game changer during this pregnancy!

Questions & Answers

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

What is pelvic floor physiotherapy? Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialized branch of physiotherapy that focuses on diagnosing, managing, and treating dysfunctions of the pelvic floor muscles. These muscles support the bladder, uterus, and rectum, and are crucial for maintaining continence, sexual health, and core stability. Therapies include exercises, manual therapy, biofeedback, and education tailored to improve the strength, coordination, and function of the pelvic floor.

Who can benefit from pelvic floor physiotherapy? Anyone experiencing symptoms related to pelvic floor dysfunction can benefit, including individuals with urinary or fecal incontinence, pelvic pain, painful intercourse, pelvic organ prolapse, and postpartum recovery issues. Both men and women, including those who have undergone prostate surgery, can benefit.

How does pelvic floor physiotherapy work? The therapy works by assessing and addressing the specific dysfunctions of the pelvic floor muscles. Treatment may include pelvic floor muscle exercises (Kegels), manual therapy techniques to release muscle tension, biofeedback to improve muscle awareness, bladder training, lifestyle modifications, and education on posture and body mechanics.

What are the signs of a weak pelvic floor? Symptoms of a weak pelvic floor include urinary leakage, an urgent need to urinate, difficulty in emptying the bladder or bowels, pelvic organ prolapse, lower back pain, and reduced sexual satisfaction. These symptoms occur because the pelvic floor muscles are unable to provide adequate support and control.

How do I know if I have a strong pelvic floor? A strong pelvic floor is often indicated by good bladder and bowel control, no leakage of urine or feces during activities such as coughing or lifting, and the absence of pelvic organ prolapse. Strength can be assessed by the ability to perform a pelvic floor contraction (Kegel) effectively, which involves lifting and holding the muscles around the urethra and rectum.

Can men benefit from pelvic floor physiotherapy? Yes, men can benefit, particularly those experiencing urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, pelvic pain, or recovery from prostate surgery. Treatment can improve muscle control, enhance bladder function, reduce pain, and support sexual health.

What does a pelvic floor physiotherapy session involve? A session typically begins with a detailed assessment of medical history, symptoms, and physical examination. This may include internal and external pelvic exams to evaluate muscle tone, strength, and coordination. Treatment may involve exercises, manual therapy, biofeedback, and education on lifestyle changes.

How long does it take to see results from pelvic floor physiotherapy? Results can vary based on the individual and the condition being treated. Some patients may see improvements in as little as 4-6 weeks, while others may require several months of consistent treatment to achieve significant results.

Is pelvic floor physiotherapy painful? While some discomfort may be experienced, especially if there are existing pain conditions, the goal of therapy is to alleviate pain and improve function. Techniques are adapted to minimize discomfort and are performed within the patient’s tolerance.

Can pelvic floor physiotherapy help with prolapse? Yes, it can manage symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles to provide better support for the organs, improving symptoms such as a bulging sensation, pelvic pressure, and incontinence.

Orthopedic & Sports Physiotherapy

What is orthopedic physiotherapy? Orthopedic physiotherapy is a branch of physical therapy focused on the evaluation, treatment, and management of musculoskeletal conditions. It addresses issues related to bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Treatments include manual therapy, exercise, and modalities like ultrasound or electrical stimulation to restore function, reduce pain, and improve mobility.

What is sports physiotherapy? Sports physiotherapy deals with the prevention and treatment of injuries related to sports and exercise. It aims to help athletes recover from injuries, improve their performance, and prevent future injuries. Treatment often involves exercises to enhance strength, flexibility, and coordination, as well as techniques like taping, bracing, and sports-specific rehabilitation.

What conditions do orthopedic physiotherapists treat? Orthopedic physiotherapists treat a variety of conditions, including but not limited to: fractures, joint dislocations, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, ligament injuries (like ACL tears), and post-operative rehabilitation for joint replacements or arthroscopic surgeries.

What injuries do sports physiotherapists commonly treat? Sports physiotherapists often manage injuries such as ankle sprains, hamstring strains, patellar tendinitis (runner’s knee), rotator cuff injuries, tennis elbow, shin splints, ACL tears, and concussion management. They also address overuse injuries common in athletes.

What are the benefits of physiotherapy? Physiotherapy benefits include pain relief, improved mobility, enhanced strength, better posture, increased flexibility, and overall better physical function. It also helps prevent injuries and manage chronic conditions, contributing to improved quality of life.

How does physiotherapy help with pain management? Physiotherapy helps manage pain through a combination of manual therapy techniques (like massage or mobilization), exercise programs to strengthen weak muscles and improve joint stability, and modalities such as heat, cold, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation to reduce inflammation and pain.

What should I expect during my first physiotherapy session? During your first physiotherapy session, the therapist will take a detailed history of your condition, conduct a physical examination, assess your movement and strength, and discuss your goals. They will then develop a personalized treatment plan, which may include exercises, manual therapy, and advice on managing your condition.

How long does a typical physiotherapy session last? A typical physiotherapy session lasts between 30 to 60 minutes. The duration can vary depending on the complexity of the condition being treated and the specific interventions required.

How many physiotherapy sessions will I need? The number of sessions required depends on the nature and severity of your condition, your response to treatment, and your personal goals. Your physiotherapist will provide an estimate after the initial assessment and adjust it based on your progress.

Can physiotherapy prevent injuries? Yes, physiotherapy can prevent injuries by identifying and addressing risk factors such as muscle imbalances, poor biomechanics, and incorrect movement patterns. A physiotherapist can design a prevention program that includes strengthening, stretching, and education on proper techniques and ergonomics.

Concussion Rehabilitation

What is a concussion? A concussion is a type of mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body, leading to a temporary disruption in brain function. Symptoms can affect physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being.

What causes a concussion? Concussions are caused by impacts that force the brain to move rapidly within the skull. Common causes include falls, sports injuries, car accidents, and physical assaults.

What are the common symptoms of a concussion? Symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, confusion, nausea, sensitivity to light or noise, balance problems, blurred vision, and mood changes. Cognitive symptoms might include difficulty concentrating or remembering.

How long do concussion symptoms last? Concussion symptoms typically resolve within 7 to 10 days, but some individuals may experience symptoms for weeks or months, a condition known as post-concussion syndrome (PCS).

What is post-concussion syndrome? PCS is a condition where concussion symptoms persist for more than a few weeks. Symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, cognitive difficulties, and emotional disturbances.

How is a concussion diagnosed? Concussions are diagnosed based on a medical evaluation that includes a review of symptoms, a physical examination, and cognitive tests. Imaging tests like CT scans or MRIs may be used to rule out more severe brain injuries.

What is the initial treatment for a concussion? Initial treatment involves rest and avoiding activities that could worsen symptoms or risk another injury. This includes physical and cognitive rest, limiting screen time, and avoiding strenuous activities.

How can you prevent concussions? Preventive measures include wearing appropriate protective gear during sports, ensuring safe environments, educating athletes and coaches on concussion risks, and promoting safe play practices.

What is the role of baseline testing in concussion management? Baseline testing involves assessing an individual’s normal brain function before any injury occurs. It provides a reference point for comparison if a concussion is suspected, aiding in diagnosis and management.

Why is it important to seek medical attention after a concussion? Medical attention ensures proper diagnosis and management, reduces the risk of complications, and provides guidance on a safe return to activities. Early intervention can also help prevent prolonged symptoms.
