Pelvic floor symptoms can vary from person to person. Therefore not every treatment is the same. Based off of your symptoms and concerns, we will design a plan just for you here at Physical Therapy Connections. There are two stages for a pelvic floor exam. First stage is an external assessment. Then, the second stage, which is not always needed, is an internal assessment.
If the patient is not comfortable with stage 2, then it can be declined. The internal assessment test is to check for prolapse. It also helps identify any areas of abnormal tightness. If there is tightness, this may be contributing to pelvic pain and/ or incontinence.
Pelvic Floor dysfunction could be the result of poor movement patterns, trauma, childbirth, etc. Symptoms can include but are not limited to incontinence, pain in the pelvic areas, and/ or low back pain, and more. If left untreated, these symptoms can make standing, walking, and even sitting uncomfortable throughout the day.
Stephanie Nolting, DPT is our low back pain and pelvic floor specialist. After assessing your condition and symptoms, Stephanie can develop a unique program just for you. She will help train different muscle groups to strengthen areas that are weak and contributing to the pain.
