Perineal re-education is one of the numerous fields of practice in physiotherapy. When faced with a dysfunction of the uro-genital system, it aims at improving pelvic floor strength, bladder control, diminishing chronic pain, etc. The muscles of the pelvic floor have various functions such as supporting the abdominal organs, controlling urinary and anal sphincters and enhancing sexual pleasure. The majority of these muscles are skeletal; this means that you have the capability of controlling them voluntarily and that they can be trained, just like the muscles of the arms and legs. It is also possible to regain control over your bladder by changing some habits and initiating a specific training program.
KneeKG by EMOVI
Knee Kinesiography with the KneeKG is meant to go beyond symptom management! Knee Kinesiography is a medical exam of the knee performed while the knee is moving while the patient is walking on a treadmill. The system is attached to the knee in order to evaluate joint function. In the same way the EKG is performing for the heart, this exam allows to know the state of the knee joint by capturing the movement. This helps to understand the deficits related to pain. The exam allows to identify and treat the causes of the pain with the right information: Knee pain generally appears with the movement of the joint and is related to biomechanical dysfunctions.

Osteopathy is a discipline based on the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the human body. The patient is treated with a global approach, so rather than simply treating the symptom the body is treated as a whole entity. Patients of all ages can benefit from osteopathy. The osteopath, with the use of different techniques, will treat the body on many different levels such as articular, visceral, cranial and fascial. This approach differentiates itself from others because it is aimed at discovering the cause of the problem rather than simply focusing on the symptoms. The key is to keep the different structures of the human body mobile. A loss in mobility causes functional as well as circulatory and/or nervous limitations. This loss in mobility can cause repercussions locally and possibly distally by forcing the body to compensate in other areas in order to maintain its equilibrium. The osteopath's job, therefore, is to make sure that the different elements of the body remain mobile in order to allow the body to function properly and remain healthy.
