Based on the findings during your evaluation, the physical therapist will design a treatment plan that addresses any dysfunction in a way that results in improved function and quality of life. Additionally, the physical therapists at PHWC recognize the intimate relationship between the pelvic floor, lumbar spine, pelvis, hips, respiratory function, and mental health. They will evaluate and treat or recommend other providers as needed in order to provide the most comprehensive and efficacious care for the patient.
The pelvic floor consists of a group of muscles that exist inside of the bony pelvis. These muscles are generally considered to have 3 primary functions: supportive, sphincteric, and sexual.
Your first visit will consist mostly of education relating to your symptoms. Your individual treatment plan will be determined during this time and will depend upon your specific needs. There is no specific attire that is required for this visit and your physical therapist will prescribe an individualized home exercise program that will be progressed throughout your course of treatment.
