At ThriveAgain, our comprehensive evaluations last a full hour and 20 minutes. This gives us time to get a full history of what’s bothering you, complete a thorough evaluation, and begin treatment on the very first visit.
Our pelvic floor evaluations start with an assessment of your back and hips, as these frequently play a part in pelvic pain and incontinence. We then move on, when and if appropriate, to an external examination of your pelvic region, and an internal vaginal and/or rectal exam of the pelvic floor muscles. During the vaginal or rectal assessment, we assess strength, tension, trigger points, flexibility and coordination of the muscles.
We discuss everything that will happen ahead of time, and only move at the pace at which each individual patient is comfortable. Using a compassionate and trauma-informed approach, we are committed to making this process as comfortable as possible. We develop a treatment plan specifically for each individual, focused around your needs and goals. Treatment may include manual releases, biofeedback, electrical stimulation, strengthening exercises, stretching exercises, functional retraining and more.
Our integrated team includes a psychotherapist with expertise in this area who is available to processes any issues that may arise during the course of treatment.
