Often women may not know they are experiencing symptoms which may be helped by a physical therapist. It can be difficult to discuss sensitive issues with your healthcare practitioner, therefore, women often suffer from chronic women’s health issues which go undiagnosed. Pelvic floor dysfunction may present as urological, bowel, vaginal or general pelvic symptoms. If you are unsure if pelvic physical therapy is appropriate for you, you may see a physical therapist for an evaluation and she will determine if you are a candidate for physical therapy. Below are a list of common symptoms experienced by many of our pelvic health patients.
  • Urinary frequency, urgency, or hesitancy
  • Painful urination
  • Pain during or after intercourse
  • Pain wearing tight fitting clothing
  • Pain with sitting
  • Vaginal pain
  • Clitoral, labial, or anal pain
  • Urinary or fecal leakage
  • Constipation
  • Pain during or after bowel movements

What to expect during your initial visit:

During your women’s health evaluation, you will be assessed in a private treatment room where you can openly discuss your condition with your physical therapist. Your therapist will ask you detailed questions about your medical history and symptoms. She will then conduct an extensive physical examination including a postural assessment, musculoskeletal examination, and internal pelvic floor exam to determine your treatment plan.

After your initial evaluation is completed, your therapist will discuss your plan of care for treatment. We believe patient education is key in gaining understanding and managing your condition. Your physical therapist will instruct you in a home exercise program, as well as self-help techniques to help foster a sense of control and empowerment in managing your symptoms. Your physical therapist will answer any questions you may have concerning your condition. We encourage open communication for you to achieve maximal benefit from your treatment. Pelvic health issues require an interdisciplinary approach to care. We will communicate with other providers in your care team including pelvic health specialists, GI specialists, urologists, mental health practitioners or any other medical health providers whom you request.
