Quick answers for the most commons questions
What to expect my first visit?
Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. The initial visit runs about 60 minutes with your physical therapist. Your health history will be reviewed as well as history leading to your primary complaint. A complete physical therapy examination will be performed including tests and measures necessary to arrive at the appropriate diagnosis and prognosis. It may be necessary to have my therapist perform an internal pelvic floor muscle examination. This examination is performed by observing and/or palpating the perineal region including the vagina and/or rectum. This evaluation will assess skin condition, reflexes, muscle tone, length, strength and endurance, scar mobility and function of the pelvic floor region.
