FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. IS A DOCTOR’S REFERRAL NECESSARY?
No, you do not require a doctor’s referral to book an appointment with our pelvic health physiotherapist. However, some extended insurance plans may require one to provide reimbursements. You can book an appointment with one of our in-house physicians to obtain a note if you do not have a family doctor.
2. WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY FIRST VISIT?
Your pelvic health physiotherapist will start the appointment by reviewing your health history followed by a physical exam. Your therapist will then perform an internal pelvic exam in order to assess your pelvic floor tone and find areas of pain and discomfort. The appointment is approximately 90 minutes in duration. Throughout the assessment your therapist will ensure you feel safe and comfortable with the treatment techniques provided.
3. WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?
Bring a pair of comfortable and loose fitting clothes. You can also bring a copy of imaging reports that may pertain to your concerns.
4. HOW MANY APPOINTMENTS DO I NEED?
The number of appointments depends on the condition and severity of the injury. Your physiotherapist will prescribe you with a treatment plan which will include the amount of follow up appointments they would advise on booking.
