What to expect from pelvic floor physical therapy

Pelvic floor physical therapy is often the only or best option for treating pelvic conditions. When surgical options are available, and your health and condition qualify you for surgery, pelvic floor physical therapy can be beneficial both before and after surgery.

During your initial exam, your pelvic floor physical therapist will go over your medical history with you and ask you questions about your health and any behaviors that may be affecting your condition, such as:

  • how much fluid you drink daily,
  • what your diet is, and
  • how frequently you have sex.

The exam will last one hour and will take place in a private room. If you are comfortable having a pelvic exam, your pelvic floor physical therapist may perform one during your initial consultation.

What happens during an internal pelvic floor muscle exam?

The majority of patients with pelvic floor disorders will require an internal examination of their pelvic floor muscles. A pelvic floor physical therapist can perform the exam to help identify any muscle, strength, or coordination issues that are causing you pain, discomfort, or functional impairments.

As part of an internal pelvic floor muscle exam, your pelvic floor physical therapist will need to an internal exam in order to assess your pelvic floor muscles and coordination.

An internal pelvic floor exam is necessary for developing an accurate treatment plan. We can, however, assess your pelvic floor muscles using other methods, such as:

  • Pelvic girdle assessments. Your pelvic floor physical therapist will assess the condition of your pelvic girdle, which is a complex ring of ligaments, joints, and muscles that connects the skeleton to the lower limbs and the pelvic floor.
  • Pre- and post-partum abdominal screening. We will examine your abdominal muscles to see if there is any separation (abdominal diastasis).

These other tests aren’t always as effective at testing your muscle strength, tone, or coordination as an internal pelvic exam. It is entirely up to you to determine which assessment is best suited to your needs and comfort.
