Ready for symptom relief?
What To Expect
During Your Initial Pelvic Physical Therapy Appointment
Your first appointment with our physical therapy team at Beyond Basics will begin with us asking questions in order to learn more about your pain and symptoms, as well as your medical history. This also provides us with the background and context we need to better understand your body and specific pain.
After our conversation, we’ll conduct a physical exam, which is a hands-on evaluation based on your symptoms. This might involve evaluating external and internal muscles, with the purpose being to trace your issue to its source(s) in order to alleviate pain.
These internal manual techniques are applied to structures of the pelvis, including the pelvic floor muscles, nerves, and bones (coccyx). As the patient, we want you to be as comfortable as possible and you have the right to refuse any treatment at any time without an explanation.
Your PT will also provide you with exercises to begin at home.
During Your Additional Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Appointments
Each session at Beyond Basic is one hour long with the physical therapist directly. We’ve found this is the ideal amount of time for the clarity, consistency, and results we are looking to help you obtain. We spend approximately 45 minutes or more on manual therapy (hands-on work) with you during each appointment and the remaining time providing any new exercises and talking about your progress.
Your symptoms should start to improve within 4 to 8 weeks (or sooner). Just like any other muscle, pelvic floor muscles can become sore following a new exercise routine, so it’s normal to experience some discomfort after the first few sessions. Your PT will always explain to you what to expect.
