Naturopathic care seeks to identify and treat the root cause of illness and see your body as a whole system functioning together, rather than a set of symptoms.

Osteopathy is a manual form of therapy including cranio-sacral therapy, that uses palpation and manipulative techniques to restore balance to your muscles, joints, nerves, connective tissue, and internal organs. The focus of Osteopathy is to find the cause of your pathology or pain, and to treat all your systems and their connections in the body to return to a state of health.
The WOMB’s osteopathy team treats:
- Injuries (Overuse & Athletic)
- Back Pain
- Soft tissue injuries

Traditional orthopaedic physiotherapy involves the assessment, diagnosis, and management of injuries and impairments involving the musculoskeletal system. This includes structures such as ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, bones, and fascia. Orthopaedic physiotherapists can address musculoskeletal injuries including:
- Muscle strains
- Chronic pain
- Rehabilitation after surgery
- Sports related injuries
During your physiotherapy session, your therapist will do a thorough assessment of your range of motion, strength, balance, posture, movement patterns, and exercise tolerance to identify physical limitations. As well, your overall health is influenced by more than just your physical impairment which is why your therapist will also use a biopsychosocial approach to understand how your unique lifestyle factors play a role in your overall health.
Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy
Even though pelvic floor challenges are common, they are treatable and you should not have to live with them. Pelvic Health Physiotherapy can help you regain control, maximize function and recovery, and improve your well being. An internal examination is required to treat the pelvic floor.
In the stage of menopause, your body, including your pelvis changes due to fluctuations in your hormones, namely a reduction in your estrogen. Bone and bladder health are two areas of key consideration during this time. Applying their expertise in urogynecology, The WOMB’s pelvic health physiotherapists can assist you in restoring your bladder function and optimizing overall mobility.
Pessaries are medical-grade devices that support the vaginal walls. Pelvic organ prolapse is a falling down of the bladder, uterus or rectum. A prolapse can contribute to stress urinary incontinence (leaking with coughing, laughing, sneezing, activity). If you feel you might benefit from a pessary or if you have been referred for a pessary fitting by another health care provider (family doctor, urologist, gynecologist or other pelvic health physiotherapists), please contact The WOMB by phone to set up this specialized appointment. If you’re not sure if a pessary would be suitable, set up a Pelvic Health Physiotherapy Initial Assessment where you can decide together if using a pessary is right for you.
Paediactric Pelvic Health
Pelvic floor dysfunction is very common in children and yet, extremely under-serviced. Most paediatric primary care visits are for incontinence (enuresis), bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis) and constipation. Paediatric pelvic floor dysfunction refers to a wide range of issues that occur when the pelvic floor muscles are weak, in spasm or too tight. The WOMB’s physiotherapists use a holistic approach that includes education and counselling related to needed lifestyle or behaviour changes, specific manual therapy techniques and exercise/movement prescription.
Registered Massage Therapy
The WOMB specializes in massage for fertility enhancement, pregnancy, caesarean scar tissue release, postpartum recovery and infant massage. However The WOMB welcomes all whether you are a parent, grandparent, dad, brother, uncle, aunt or postal worker you are invited to book some time to prioritize self care. Sometimes massage is just that opportunity for a “break.” Let someone else take care of you – book a massage at The WOMB.
