Some people have concerns with what treatment of the pelvic floor might mean. Here’s what to expect: First I learn about your specific concerns because not everyone is the same, even similar symptoms may require different treatment. Then, I teach everyone what the pelvic floor is and how it normally works. There is a lot of surprising information on what is normal about the bladder and how to properly do kegels.
The assessment of movement, strength, motion, coordination and alignment of the whole body is our next step this all happens with clothes on. Exercises for home are developed based on individual needs.
The internal assessment of the pelvic floor muscles requires disrobing from the waist down to visually inspect how the muscles respond with cough, kegel and bearing down. No speculum is required like in a OBGYN office because we are not looking at internal organs; it is a gentle assessment to test strength, test for prolapse, and identify any areas of abnormal tightness that may contribute to pelvic pain or incontinence. People are always able to decline if they are not comfortable with going to the internal stage of assessment. The pelvic floor muscles can also be assessed on male patients.
