Every appointment will be 100% one-on-one with your therapist. You can expect to spend 75 minutes at your initial evaluation, and 60 minutes at your follow up visits. Each session will include a combination of assessment, manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular re-education, and patient education on how to supplement treatment while at home.
This will vary greatly from person to person, depending on what you’re being treated for, how long you’ve been dealing with the issue, and other factors that will play a role in your recovery. “Typically” you’ll see your therapist 2-3 times per month in the beginning of your program, and work towards coming in every 4 weeks as you continue to improve. You might expect treatment to last anywhere from four to eight visits, depending on the severity of the issue.
NO! You no longer need a referral to get started with pelvic floor therapy! This saves you valuable time and money, as well as avoids unnecessary diagnostic testing and medications. The sooner you receive treatment for an injury or dysfunction, the faster you will get well! After we complete your initial evaluation, we will write up a Plan of Care and send it to the provider (ie. Doctor, OBGYN, Midwife or Chiropractor), so they can be up to date on your treatments.
