Health History and Privacy:
Prior to seeing your physiotherapist you will be asked to fill out a health intake form. This will give your physiotherapist a better understanding of your health history before you begin your one-on-one 60-minute assessment. Here the physiotherapist will review your goals of treatment, explain pelvic health anatomy, and describe each of the assessment options available. Your pelvic floor physiotherapy sessions are held in a private room, where your privacy and confidentiality are a top priority.
Examination and Treatment:
Together the physiotherapist and client decide which type of assessment and treatments are best for the individual. Your physiotherapist may recommend an internal and/or external (vaginal and/or rectal) examination. During the internal exam the strength, tone and coordination of the pelvic floor will be assessed. Additionally, the spine, pelvis, hips, and abdominal muscles strength and mobility will also be assessed.
