PELVIC PHYSIOTHERAPY: TELL ME MORE
Pelvic floor physiotherapists are Registered Physiotherapists that have specialized training in order to assess internal pelvic floor muscles. This can play a really important role to help your physiotherapist understand the root problem and provide you with an effective treatment plan.
With informed consent, your initial assessment will typically include a detailed history of your concerns and general health and a physical assessment of areas such as alignment, breathing, movement strategies, ability to engage your abdominal muscles and an internal/external pelvic floor exam. Prior to any internal exam, your therapist will explain what to expect and can discuss the risks, benefits and alternatives to help you make an informed decision.
