Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of various conditions that involve the pelvic floor or symptoms that manifest in this area. Pelvic floor physiotherapy aims, as its name suggests, to improve awareness and control of the all-important muscles lining your pelvic floor. The floor is composed of muscles, ligaments, nerves and connective tissue. The pelvic floor plays an important role in maintaining continence, sexual function, core stability and support for the bladder, uterus, and rectum.

An assessment begins with a comprehensive history followed by a physical assessment. Assessment may include observation of your movement patterns, balance, strength, abdominal muscle control, joint range of motion, and assessment of your ability to contract and relax these muscles and their synergy with the other core muscles. You will be offered the option of both an external assessment of the pelvic floor muscles as well as an internal vaginal and/or rectal exam for internal assessment of the pelvic floor. Although internal assessment provides the most accurate assessment, it is not mandatory and you will be given options based on your symptoms and goals

Maegan graduated from the 3,000 hour program at the Vancouver West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2006 and she moved to Victoria in 2016. She treats using a combination of Visceral (organ) Manipulation, Fascial and Myofascial therapy, Cranialsacral therapy and Joint Mobilizations. Maegan is particularly passionate about Visceral Manipulation and scar tissue treatment. Treatments with Maegan are from a holistic perspective in which she works with the client to help the body restore balance. With a detailed interview and assessment, her and her clients determine the cause of pain and physical challenges and treatments revolve around reconnecting with those areas. She treats an array of issues including pelvic pain and dysfunction, breast issues, digestive problems, headaches, TMJ, concussions and pain. Maegan addresses scar tissue issues by using a combination of fascial modalities, movement, and visceral manipulation. These treatments can help to decrease pain, feelings of pulls, itchiness or tightness from the scar, and issues with restrictions to ranges of motion. All of which can occur from surgeries, injuries, abdominal adhesions, or car accidents. Continuing education is very important to Maegan thus she attends courses on a regular basis in her areas of interest. She has also taught Fascial Therapy to undergraduate RMT’s in Vancouver and was a clinic supervisor for several years in Victoria.
