What should you expect at a Women’s Health physiotherapy appointment?
The first appointment with any new patient is 45 minutes in length and begins by documenting a history of the patient. Our Women’s Health physiotherapists will then build a personalised treatment by identifying the problem and establishing what your goals are.
Following the initial discussion, a physical examination may be performed. This is different for everyone, depending on the predominant issue, though can include:
- Posture and functional movement assessment
- Examination of the myofascial system
- Pelvic examination (internal and external), including:
- Functional tone and activation of pelvic floor muscles and pelvic organ prolapse presence
- Real-time ultrasound of abdominal muscles or pelvic contents
- Biofeedback assessment of pelvic floor function
Throughout the examination, your physiotherapist will explain the process and discuss what your treatment should focus on, as well as what your expectations are, in order to work towards your recovery goals.
