What is Pelvic Health Physical Therapy?
Pelvic Health Physical Therapy focuses on the evaluation, assessment, and treatment of the pelvic floor muscle system. The pelvic floor forms a muscular sling from the tailbone to the pubic bone. These muscles play a large role in core stabilization, and can strongly influence performance in activities such as running, jumping, and weightlifting. The pelvic floor provides support to our internal organs, and holds an important role in our bowel, bladder, and sexual health.
Here’s what you can expect during your Pelvic Floor Initial Examination
Your evaluation will be conducted in a private treatment room where you and your Doctor of Physical Therapy can discuss your symptoms and concerns. You are welcome to bring your partner, friend, or family member; new parents are welcome to bring their infant.
After an initial discussion of your symptoms, your Physical Therapist will evaluate your pelvic floor function through external and internal examination. Your therapist will design a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and improves your pelvic floor function.
*Given the sensitivity of a Pelvic Floor exam, we ask all patients to have a referral prepared for their first visit.
