Physiotherapists are primary health care professionals with a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and disease. They combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability. The primary goals of physiotherapy treatments are to restore function, relieve pain, and provide education and strategies to prevent dysfunction from reoccurring.

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
Pelvic health physiotherapists have received specialized education in pelvic floor dysfunction and are trained to do internal vaginal and rectal exams to determine the state of the pelvic floor. The internal exam is essential to assess whether the pelvic floor muscles are weak, the timing is off, or more commonly, they are too tight and need releasing. For the core muscles to properly function, the pelvic floor has to be working optimally. There are several muscles making up the pelvic floor and they have 5 important functions: spinal and pelvic stability and control, sphincter control (continence), support for the pelvic and abdominal organs, sexual arousal, and they act like a sump-pump for fluid in the pelvis.
Pelvic floor dysfunction can occur following low back pain, childbirth, prostate surgery, hysterectomy, abdominal surgery (even laproscopic), constipation or even long periods of poor posture. Symptoms of possible pelvic floor problems include a weak core, incontinence or frequent urination, sacroiliac joint pain, chronic hip or low back pain, consistently tight buttocks or inner thigh muscles, or any pain with intercourse.
Pre and Post Natal Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy in the pre-natal period can help with SI joint pain, hip pain, upper back and neck strain, and prevention or monitoring of diastasis rectus abdominus. It is often beneficial to help establish your baseline pelvic floor status and prepare you for delivery and the first few weeks post partum.
In the post partum period physiotherapy can help reduce vaginal or cesarean section scar tissue and pain, correct any issues with incontinence or prolapse, and functionally correct the core to prepare you for return to physical activity. Remember that Kegel exercises for the pelvic floor are not one size fits all and that returning to physical fitness without proper core-coordination can put you at risk of developing diastasis recti or incontinence in the months following delivery.
Jaclyn Seebach, Physiotherapist
I am passionate about getting mamas and mamas-to-be active and am excited to be able to do this as part of the Rebirth Team! I want you to know that your body is strong and capable! I want exercise and day-to-day movements to be joy-filled and stress-relieving for you, not fear-filled, painful or another onerous thing on your to-do list. I’d love to help you actively pursue and maintain wellness by establishing an individualized treatment plan that is optimal for your lifestyle, current challenges and goals. Treatment may include exercise prescription, manual therapy techniques, acupuncture and education.
I completed my Masters of Science in Physiotherapy at Dalhousie University in 2009. Post-graduate training interests led me to pursue pelvic health (with a special focus on the female athlete), advanced manual and manipulative therapy and acupuncture through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute. When not at work, I love trying to keep up with my 3 energetic kids, running (usually slowly), being in the great outdoors and playing the violin and celtic fiddle.
Dayna Morelatto, Physiotherapist
I have always had an interest in how the body moves and love to restore people to their activities and help them to achieve their goals. I am passionate about helping mamas stay active, be pain free and feel in control of their body wherever they may be in their Motherhood journey. As a mother of two myself, I am so honored to be a part of the Rebirth team, a place which helped to support me during both of my pregnancies and post partum periods.
I completed my Masters of Physiotherapy at The University of Western Ontario and have completed further training in Acupuncture, Post natal fitness and of course Pelvic Physiotherapy. I look forward to connecting with each client and working together to achieve whatever the goal may be. Treatments may include manual therapy, exercise prescription, acupuncture and lots of education so you can feel empowered in your own rehab.
