IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL SERVICES:
Care personalized for you
At Full Circle Physiotherapy, we consider you to be whole and work with you from head to toe. We approach care in a way that considers the inter-connection of your body structures, functions and the interplay of how your individual thoughts, feelings, beliefs and social contexts influence each other. Physiotherapy services should be adaptable to you and we are thrilled to offer care in your community, in person and virtually online through BC.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
We start with a detailed intake form including past medical history, current history, social and emotional wellbeing and beliefs about your body. We love to take time to talk with you and give you space to share what brings you into care. We may ask guided questions to learn more about you, your health and how you want to live. We may perform a physical assessment of how your body moves and feels. When speaking with you and performing assessments, our goal is to do it in collaboration with you and in a way that you feel comfortable. We can provide treatment with education, hands on support and movement based strategies to help you feel better. We consider care to be a partnership with you to bring your needs and goals together with the physiotherapists’ knowledge and resources. Together we can create a comprehensive care plan to support and empower you in your body.
PELVIC HEALTH PHYSIOTHERAPY FOR YOUR PELVIC FLOOR:
Learning and Discovering
One of the key skills Full Circle Physiotherapy providers are trained in is the ability to assess and treat pelvic floor conditions through interviewing and physical external and internal exams when needed. An internal examination in the context of pelvic health care may provide additional valuable information but is not a requirement for care. Pelvic floor concerns may be related to questions and challenges you may have with bowel and bladder health, sexual function, pelvic organ prolapse and pain. These conditions can present at any point in your entire lifespan. Many people seek care for low back and hip pain, prenatal and postnatal support, bladder pain and urgency, persistent pelvic or genital pain, symptoms of menopause, oncology and transgender health.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
Just like a regular physiotherapy appointment, we understand that your pelvic health impacts you within the context of your whole body. We know how challenging it can be to seek care for intimate concerns and we try to take down barriers to provide spaces that all you to ask questions and understand your body better. We’ve made blog posts related to pelvic health care to try and answer some frequent questions and concerns people have.
MOVEMENT MADE TO MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE
We believe that movement and exercise have the power to transform our health and wellbeing. A number of our providers offer clinical pilates, physiotherapist led group exercise classes and personal training to support your treatment goals. Exercise support with our providers can be tailored to consider the diversity of your health needs, including emotional wellbeing, sleep health, sexual health, cardiovascular health, muscle function, bone health and overall metabolic health.
Adrienne, Jen, Hayley and Mikaela are physiotherapists who offer clinical pilates as a compliment to your physiotherapy care. Clinical Pilates can be done virtually using a mat or in person with more equipment including mat, reformer and chair.
Lisa is our incredible team personal trainer. She offers in person and virtually supported training through her platform BeStrongTraining. Lisa also works as a support person for the physiotherapy team to compliment your treatment needs. We love to support our clients to transition from physiotherapy care into longstanding exercise support that feels fun and sustainable for them!
Jodie and Adrienne offer group exercise classes to help you find movement that is fun, social and supporting your unique treatment goals. Group based care can help people to regularly complete their therapy exercise and improve their pelvic health symptoms alongside the added wonderful impact to many other systems of your body. We particularly love to laugh, have fun and slip in some pelvic floor humour while we move with you! Group classes can be joined following a 1:1 appointment to determine your needs and what class might fit best for you.
