An initial assessment with our physiotherapist will start with discussion of your symptoms, concerns and goals of treatment, to assist in developing an understanding of your condition. Based on this, the physiotherapist will determine what assessment to perform.
If your physiotherapist determines that an internal pelvic floor assessment is appropriate for your presentation, they will discuss this option with you. Your physiotherapist will explain the process with you prior to performing any assessment and will give you the choice to decline, complete this assessment at a future consultation, or commence the assessment if you are agreeable. If at any point you decide you would prefer to cease this assessment, please communicate this to your physiotherapist – they will not continue without your permission.
Once the assessment if complete you will be provided with appropriate treatment, education and advice. This may include home exercises, lifestyle advice, the use of a bladder diary or starting clinical Pilates classes at our clinic.
Jess is available Monday and Wednesday.
