What does a pelvic PT appointment look like?
The Studio Barre and Wellness is able to offer physical therapy services through Bell Moody Physical Therapy LLC-a certified pelvic floor physical therapist with over 345 hours worth of training and experience. This is a mobile, cash based, practice where you can receive treatment out of the comfort of your own home.
What to Expect
Your first appointment we spend a lot of time getting to know your story, goals, what the pelvic floor is, and how PT will play into your life. I take a full body examination for a holistic/whole view of what’s going on and how I can help. We then plan together how to accomplish your goals! During follow up appointments, we spend a lot of time resetting the nervous system and recalibrating your pelvic floor muscles to work correctly in order to resolve your symptoms.
Female patients also have the option of an internal vaginal exam to assess pelvic floor musculature. This is not required and is totally up to YOU as the patient if you’re comfortable with an internal exam. What does an internal exam look like?
I use a gloved finger with a small amount of water based lubricant to exam each of the three layers of pelvic floor muscles for: strength, flexibility, coordination, pain, etc. No stirrups, speculum, or hospital gown is used. You're fully covered with a sheet and most of all you're in total control of the exam. I am dedicated to preventing pain during exams and providing each patient with the utmost respect.
Bell Moody Physical Therapy is an out-of network provider that doesn't file treatment sessions to insurance. We use a fee schedule comparable to that of your traditional co-pay/co-insurance. You may request copies of your treatment documentation to file an insurance claim yourself to potentially receive out-of network reimbursement. A referral from your primary care provider, MD, DMD, etc., is necessary to initiate a full plan of care. Wellness and stress relief interventions are available without a referral. Due to the one-on-one nature and extended treatment session times (1 full hour) my hope is you will improve and see benefits of pelvic PT at a rapid pace.
I use techniques of communication at your visit to provide you with respect, privacy, maintain your dignity, and promote comfort as we navigate topics that are private and sometimes difficult to speak about.
MY GOAL for YOU: that you leave each visit feeling empowered and with more control over your symptoms.
