Each patient will have a thorough physical therapy evaluation focusing on their specific dysfunction/ diagnoses. The evaluation will include a conversation on the history of the symptoms and any other co-morbidities. A physical examination is performed in order to assess any musculoskeletal dysfunction that may be contributing to the symptoms. A specific and tailored plan of care is then established in order to address the findings on the evaluation.

A plan of care will be tailored to individual needs and may include:

  • Biofeedback training (strengthening and relaxation)
  • Manual therapy
  • Education including bladder retraining
  • Therapeutic exercises
  • Personalized home exercise program

As medical professionals, physical therapists recognize the vital need of musculoskeletal treatment. A physician referral is required for the Pelvic Floor Program.
