Understand Pelvic Floor Health

What is Pelvic Floor Therapy?

Pelvic floor therapy begins with a comprehensive assessment which includes collecting your medical history and a physical examination. A full physical exam includes evaluation of your spine, pelvis, hips, abdomen and the musculature of your pelvic floor both internally and externally. As a patient, you may consent to any level of examination, however, a full examination is strongly encouraged for the most comprehensive assessment and results.

 

After completing the assessment, Laura will craft a thorough pelvic floor  therapy plan of care custom to your specific needs, medical conditions, comfort level and goals. The plan of care often includes a combination of hand-on therapies, education, exercise and specialized training to support your healing journey to wellness.
