WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A PELVIC HEALTH THERAPY SESSION
The nature of pelvic floor therapy requires an internal exam of the pelvic floor muscles, ligaments and structural alignment.
You will be given a gown to wear, and your therapist will gently guide you through the examination. She will feel and assess the different areas of the pelvic girdle. There can be some mild discomfort.
Treatment is a combination of guided exercises with internal prompts to make sure you are engaging the correct muscles. Your treatment session may include take home exercises, acupuncture, soft tissue release.
