Our pelvic floor evaluations start with a musculoskeletal assessment, as this frequently plays a part in pelvic pain and incontinence. We then move on, when and if appropriate, to an external and internal vaginal and/or rectal exam of the pelvic floor muscles. During the vaginal or rectal assessment, we assess strength, tension, trigger points, flexibility and coordination of the muscles. We discuss everything that will happen ahead of time, and only move at the pace at which each individual patient is comfortable. Using a compassionate and trauma-informed approach, we are committed to making this process as comfortable as possible. We develop a treatment plan specifically for each individual, focused arond your needs and goals. Treatment may include manual releases, strengthening exercises, biofeedback, electrical stimulation, stretching exercises, functional retraining and more.
Our integrated team includes a psychotherapist with expertise in this area who is available to processes any issues that may arise during the course of treatment.
