What to expect?
On your first appointment, we will discuss your medical history thoroughly so we can best understand your needs and what brought you to our office. Your appointment will take place in a private treatment room with an experienced pelvic floor physical therapist.
After reviewing the history, mechanism of injury, symptoms and other important information, you will undergo an examination. An examination will include palpation of muscles and connective tissue, joint mobility assessment, neural assessment, posture and alignment assessment and, on occasion, examination of the hips and spine may be needed. With your consent, an assessment of the pelvic floor muscles is completed by internal examination. We understand this may be a sensitive topic to discuss and we assure that you are being treated by professionals focusing their practice to these types of issues.
Once the examination is completed, we will discuss our findings, review the anatomy and its relationship to your symptoms and create a treatment plan. We urge you not to delay setting up your initial evaluation. It is our experience that earlier intervention allows for quicker healing.
We believe in working as a team, so we would be happy to contact your referring physician and other health professionals you may request.
