Bethany has been a physical therapist for over 7 years and recently completed her initial training in pelvic health physical therapy through Herman and Wallace Institute. She uses high level assessment techniques to determine a personalized plan of care of each patient. Additionally, she strives to incorporate education into every session in order to give her patients the tools to succeed outside of PT. You may benefit from a pelvic health evaluation if you have any of the following conditions: pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, sexual pain or dysfunction, or if you are pregnant or postpartum. At this time, Bethany is only able to treat patients with female anatomy, but will be completing additional training in the future to expand this service to all patients.
Frequently Asked Questions
Embarking on your pelvic health journey begins with a comprehensive pelvic floor physical therapy evaluation. At Clarity, we prioritize a personalized approach to address your unique needs. During this evaluation, your therapist will initiate the process with a thoughtful interview, delving into your reasons for seeking treatment, concerns, and personal wellness goals.
What Is Included In A Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Evaluation?
During a pelvic floor evaluation, your therapist will begin with a brief interview to discuss what brings you in for treatment, any concerns or questions, and your goals. They will then perform an orthopedic assessment of the low back, hips, and core. With your consent, they will also perform an intravaginal pelvic floor assessment to determine pelvic floor strength, muscle coordination, and any areas of increased muscle tension. Based on this information, they will come up with a customized plan of care to decrease your symptoms and get you back to feeling like your best self.
Isn’t Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Just Doing Kegels?
NO. Although strengthening the pelvic floor is often part of pelvic health treatment, frequently patients are performing Kegels incorrectly, which can lead to exacerbation of symptoms rather than improvement. Additionally, there is often a component of overactive muscles in the pelvic floor and strengthening them without first releasing and lengthening the muscles is proven to be ineffective.
