In this 45 min pelvic floor assessment as registered pelvic physiotherapist will do a full assessment of your pelvic floor and core muscles:
Research shows that as many as 75% of women perform a kegel (pelvic floor contraction) incorrectly. There is a lot of misinformation on the internet and from other sources about the mechanics of the pelvic floor and core muscles. With pelvic floor physiotherapy the goal is to optimize the pelvic floor muscles' strength, coordination, endurance, timing and flexibility.
These muscles are easily damaged during pregnancy, birth and are affected by hormone changes throughout our lifespan. Your first physio assessment may include an intervaginal or interanal exam to assess your pelvic floor muscle function. Because these muscles are deep inside the pelvis, doing an internal exam is the most effective way to assess them. The pelvic floor muscles are part of your inner core muscle system. Your abdominal strength and the rest of the core muscles will also be assessed during this first visit.
