I would like to introduce myself and I am very excited to inform you that I will be providing Women’s Health/Pelvic Health at enduraHEALTH Sports Therapy.
My name is Lindsay Milne, I graduated with a Master’s of Science in Physiotherapy from Dalhousie University in 2012 after completing a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. I have also completed training in Women’s Urinary Incontinence from Uro Santé in Montreal. My post-graduate career goal has always been to work with Women’s Health/ Pelvic Floor clientele. After 3 years of Orthopedic practice, I am now splitting my practice between Orthopedics and Women’s Health. My practice focuses on treating women’s urinary incontinence through education, manual therapy techniques and exercise prescription. I am continuing my manual therapy training as well as staying on top of the new literature and techniques that are being developed in order to provide the best possible care to her clients in both areas of her practice.
Consultation and treatment of the following conditions are available:
Bladder Function- incontinence, prolapse, voiding difficulties, pre & post op care
Prolapse- bladder, uterus, and bowel
Pre & Post Natal Care- specific problems during pregnancy, i.e. back pain, SI joint
Core Stability- instability of the sacroiliac joint/lumbar spine using Cecile Rost treatment protocol, one on one core training, and breathing retraining
Ano Rectal Disorders- constipation, anal incontinence, anal fissures
Treatment is provided in a private room on a one to one basis for one hour. The initial assessment will determine your individual problem and a program will be designed specific to your needs. Programs may include progressive exercises including a home program, education and behaviour modification, specific soft tissue techniques, nerve and joint mobilizations, pelvic stability, and possibly electrical stimulation. Your active involvement and commitment to follow through with the home program will determine your success. The intention is to assist you to overcome or take control of your problem, thereby increasing the quality of your life.
This service is not covered by Alberta Healthcare but most benefit plans provide coverage for Physiotherapy. Pelvic Floor physiotherapy is under the scope of practice of Orthopedic physiotherapy therefor it is covered by most extended plans.
I would like to thank you in advance for any referrals you may have!
