Pelvic floor muscle training delivered by a physiotherapist with clinical expertise and training in treating pelvic floor dysfunction
The participants randomized to the pelvic floor muscle training intervention will receive pelvic floor muscle training (0-12 weeks) delivered by a physiotherapist with clinical expertise and training in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. The intervention is 9 individual, one-on-one, 45-minute sessions; weekly for weeks 0-6 and bi-weekly for weeks 7-12 (first session will be 60 minutes). The sessions will provide pelvic floor muscle training based on the latest evidence, including biofeedback, to teach the correct technique for pelvic floor contractions, and participants will be asked to complete daily pelvic floor exercises at home.
Other Name: Pelvic Floor Muscle Training
Usual Care Control
Participants randomized to this arm will receive a 1-page educational pamphlet on pelvic floor muscle training, specifically Kegel exercises, which is equivalent to current standard care. Individuals randomized to this group will be placed on the clinic waiting list and be eligible for treatment following completion of the 12 week (end of study) measures.
Other: Usual Care
The participants randomized to the educational pamphlet intervention (usual care control) will receive a 1-page sheet on pelvic floor muscle training, specifically Kegel exercises, which is equivalent to current standard care. Individuals randomized to this group will be placed on the clinic waiting list and be eligible for treatment following completion of the 12 week (end of study) measures.
