What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a medical, hands-on approach to relieving pain and restoring function. Physiotherapy services include a broad range of treatment approaches that can help individuals live supported, strong, and mobile lives. Physiotherapists are medical experts in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and work closely with physicians, strength & conditioning coaches, massage therapists, and additional practitioners to support your health.
Our Kelowna-based physiotherapists evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain, and work with you to eliminate it. While every client’s condition and pain is unique, your physiotherapist will use a variety of gentle hands-on techniques, exercises, and equipment to relieve pain quickly and restore your function to optimum levels. The overall goal is to restore pain-free mobility and function and to prevent the injury or pain from recurring.

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy
Make an appointment with one of Kelowna’s pelvic floor therapists for pelvic floor physiotherapy – a field of treatment that works specifically with pelvic floor dysfunction, and symptoms that may manifest in that area. The pelvic floor includes muscles, ligaments, nerves and connective tissues, all of which play an important role in the function and comfort of the bladder, uterus, genitals and anus. Pelvic floor physiotherapy can assist with urinary or bowel urgency, incontinence, or burning, pain with sex, pelvic pressure, pain or heaviness, discomfort while sitting, and with pre-natal care and post-partum recovery. Pelvic floor physiotherapy often includes both internal and external assessment and treatment, focusing on the relaxation and strengthening of the various pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor physiotherapy can benefit both women and men. Medis is currently only treating pelvic floor for women. READ MORE: Pelvic floor physiotherapy
