What will my first visit be like?

First, we will start your session by discussing why you referred yourself or why your physician referred you to physical therapy.  Next, we will take adequate time to discuss your past medical history, including all areas of pelvic functioning (urinary, bowel, bladder, and sexual).  Every aspect of your history will be taken into consideration in order to obtain a thorough understanding of the root cause of your current problem.  Then, a gentle physical therapy exam will be performed, which may include internal pelvic muscle evaluation, posture assessment, external joint and muscle evaluation, and a functional assessment.  Finally, we discuss the exam findings and how they are contributing to your problem.  We set wellness goals together.  An individualized therapy plan is created to meet those goals and a home exercise program is initiated.  We promise to make exams as pain free as possible.
