I understand that the idea of pelvic health physical therapy can be confusing and maybe even a little scary. My goal is to demystify the pelvic floor and associated dysfunction. I will meet you at your home, gym, office, or wherever else works best for you and your schedule.
On the first visit we will gather lots of information together. You will receive intake forms ahead of time and I will give you time to ask any questions you may have. Every single patient is different, and therefore every single evaluation and treatment is different. We will go over your chief complaints, goals, what you want to get back to, and will get to know you better so I can best tailor your care to meet your needs. Your initial evaluation can involve a variety of assessment tools and I will normally begin treatment in some capacity on day one.
After the initial evaluation you can also expect a detailed email with my findings, plan, and things you can work on outside of therapy to heal on your own.
“What about the internal work?”
Lots of you reading this may be wondering about internal work.
Or you may be thinking, “If the pelvic floor muscles are in the pelvis, how do we get to them?”
The answer: the pelvic floor muscles can be assessed with an internal vaginal or rectal exam. However, this isn’t always necessary in order to assess and treat your specific issues, and the evaluation and treatment will always move at your pace. We will discuss any internal work in detail before hand so that you always know what the plan is and the reasoning behind it.
