What you may expect during your physical therapy visit:
A physical therapy pelvic floor evaluation is very different from the evaluation you receive from your doctor. Physical therapists are experts in assessing muscular tone, strength, flexibility, and endurance, as well as the general health of the musculo-skeletal system. So our evaluation of your pelvic floor is very detailed and comprehensive. While it always involves a thorough pelvic floor assessment, it often includes assessment of your back, hips, and any other region of your body that may be involved.

We begin with a “subjective” evaluation in our San Francisco therapy office, meaning we ask you many questions regarding your condition, and this information guides us in what we include in our “objective” or hands-on evaluation. In complicated situations, an assessment may take 2 or more sessions.

We share our results with your doctor because sometimes we are able to find things that were missed because we spend more time with you.
