Inspire Physio: Sudbury's premier clinic for empowering pelvic health

Men, women, or even children, can benefit from receiving proper treatment for pelvic health issues

Completing its one-year milestone in March, Inspire Physio has emerged as one of Sudbury's leading clinics for pelvic health clients. Specializing in pelvic floor physiotherapy, the clinic takes a holistic approach, addressing biomechanical issues while considering psychological and social factors.

“Pelvic health has always been an area that has carried a certain amount of stigma and shame around it, preventing many men and women from getting the proper treatment they need,” says Ashley Ross, Owner/Physiotherapist of Inspire Physio.


Many people of all genders and ages will at some point in their lives experience urinary or fecal incontinence, painful sex, difficulty emptying their bowels or bladder, vaginal heaviness or pressure, pelvic girdle pain or changes in their vulvar health.

Unfortunately, many of these people are too embarrassed to talk to their medical provider about these issues. Often, people are told, “its normal, you just had a baby”, “you are getting older, these things happen” or “that is just how things are going to be now”. But pelvic floor physiotherapy can help.

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialized area of physiotherapy that focuses on assessing and treating conditions related to the pelvic floor muscles for both men and women. This specialized form of physiotherapy includes taking an extensive history of your physical health, including questions related to your bladder and bowel control, sexual function, and symptoms experienced during your period or menopause. Once a thorough history is taken, a physical exam will be performed which may or may not include an internal exam, depending on the client’s comfort level and consent.

Once the therapist is able to see the whole picture, treatment is tailored to each individual client and their needs, often including pelvic floor muscle training, core strengthening, manual therapy, as well as education, connecting with your breath, and stress management. By addressing issues such as incontinence, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse, the goal is to enhance overall well-being.


Contrary to misconceptions, pelvic floor physiotherapy is not exclusive to a particular demographic. Individuals dealing with urinary or fecal incontinence, pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, pregnancy-related concerns, postpartum issues, and pain with intercourse can all benefit significantly. Inspire Physio's skilled physiotherapists tailor their approach to each client, ensuring personalized and effective care.

A common question is whether it is too late for pelvic floor physiotherapy. Ashley Ross says, “It is never too late to make a change and increase your quality of life. I have worked with clients as young as 8 years old, all the way up to 94 years old, who have experienced significant change”.

Another common question includes whether pelvic health physiotherapy is suitable during pregnancy. The answer is a resounding yes. Pregnancy places unique demands on the pelvic floor, and addressing issues early can contribute to a smoother pregnancy and postpartum recovery. Inspire Physio provides specialized care for pregnant individuals and supports postpartum rehabilitation.

If this sounds familiar, pelvic floor physiotherapy may be for you:

  • I lose control and leak when I laugh, sneeze or cough
  • I avoid certain exercises like running and jumping because I leak
  • I go to the bathroom frequently or have difficulty emptying my bladder
  • I always carry an extra change of underwear, just in case
  • I'm afraid that I won't find a bathroom in time
  • Sex is painful
  • I am not well rested because I wake often to go to the bathroom
  • I'm pregnant or postpartum and things just don’t feel the same.

As Inspire Physio approaches its one-year anniversary, the clinic reflects on its commitment to leading the way in physiotherapy, particularly in pelvic health. The team is dedicated to providing top-notch services, staying on top of advancements in the field, and ensuring the well-being of their clients.
