Media Women Montreal : time for some thank you's !

I still can’t believe the evening we all shared a few weeks ago.

You know when you see something in your head and then what you see is exactly what you had mapped out in your mind?

Yeah. That happened.

It was unbelievable and i’m still flying high.

There are so many people to thank. First off, a huge heartfelt thank you to our sponsors. We could not have done this without you. Thank you for making this evening a success. And a special shoutout to our three Title Sponsors.

ASK Physiothérapie

ASK Physiothérapie, is a leading pelvic floor physiotherapy center serving men, women and the transgender community. Our clinic specializes in treatment for urinary and bowel issues, genital and pelvic pain conditions as well as pre and postnatal care. Pee a little when you cough? We treat that. Has sex or erections become painful? We treat that. Will your mummy tummy just not go away?! We treat that! Nothing is taboo with us and we want to help.

Our message is HOPE for those dealing with pelvic floor issues. We believe that no one should be told their symptoms are normal, that surgery is the only option or that there isn’t anything to do. Treatment is not complete unless you’ve seen a pelvic floor physiotherapist.

Our expert team of physiotherapists treat:

· Urine and bowel leakage, urgency and constipation
· Pain with sex
· Generalized genital, abdominal and pelvic pain
· Pelvic organ prolapse – bladder, uterus, rectum
· Abdominal separation - Diastasis
· Pre and post surgery – prostate, c-section, GRS 
· And more

Our mission is to quicken access to treatment through awareness and to treat pelvic floor dysfunction with excellence and compassion so patients can focus on the things they love.

Let’s start the discussion. There is Pelvic Hope. ASK.
