Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
This is an area of practice that is specific to Warman Physiotherapy & Wellness and to date is not offered at any other location within the city of Warman. Pelvic health physiotherapy focuses on any individual in the community that has issues with the pelvic floor in particular. Common complaints that can be addressed in this area include:
- Bladder leakage (Stress, urge, and overflow incontinence)
- Pelvic pain (sudden onset, gradual onset, or from trauma – typically birth trauma)
- Fecal incontinence
- Leaking and accidents in the older child
Often femme presenting individuals who are having issues with these types of complaints are told that it is ‘something to live with’. Our treatment programs are individualized and in a majority of cases symptoms of leakage and pain can be reduced and eliminated!
Prenatal & Post-Partum Care
Focused on pregnant and postpartum people, physiotherapy assessment and treatment can be highly effective in managing issues during this time. Some of the different areas of complaint that can be addressed in this area includes but is not limited to:
- Back pain
- Pelvic pain (SIJ and Pubic Symphysis)
- Sciatic or leg pain
- Knee or other joint pain

The Physiotherapists that focus in this area of practice are Maja Stroh and Haylie Lashta. Between the two physiotherapists, they have a combined total of pelvic health experience over two decades!
Our multidisciplinary approach to all populations means our clients are often referred from physiotherapy to massage and vice versa. This is intended to obtain the best results for the client in the shortest possible time frame. It is often recommended that if you are experiencing pain, to begin with a physiotherapy assessment; this will allow for the physiotherapist and massage therapist to coordinate treatment based on the underlying factor creating the pain and discomfort.
Injuries obtained while working out at the gym, playing a non-competitive sport, or an ache/pain that just started up one morning. Areas of complaint could be any part of the body, and be going on for a very short period of time (acute) or a long period of time (chronic). Injuries can be re-occurring and happen sporadically throughout a number of years. Some examples of injuries seen in this area:
- Ankle & Wrist sprains and strains
- Shoulder injuries (rotator cuff)
- Bruising (bone and muscle)
- Overuse or repetitive strain injuries (tennis elbow, jumpers knee, plantar fasciitis)
- Posture correction
- TMJ dysfunction (jaw)
- & Much more!
These are injuries that are obtained at a higher competitive level. Sports injuries can occur at a number of age ranges from childhood into senior years. Often these injuries are more specific and you feel the injury occur at a particular time (not always the case!). Sports injuries can also be found in any area of the body from the head to the foot. It is important to note that concussions are injuries often obtained during sports that have been shown to improve with Physiotherapy treatment. It is important that with any concussion proper return to sport is considered.
Sports injuries include but are not limited to:
- Sprains & strains throughout the body (wrist, ankle, groin, etc)
- Back injury
- Knee injury (MCL, ACL, PCL, PFPS)
- Bruising/charlie horse
- Shoulder injury
