WHAT TO EXPECT

Your initial assessment usually takes around 60 minutes. Once your appointment is booked, you will receive an email that will include online forms that should be filled out before your initial assessment. The goal of your initial assessment is to understand what is driving your pain - whether it is tissue or nervous system based.

Our physiotherapists will assess your muscles, joints and connective tissue in your lower back, pelvis, hips, and abdomen. If an internal exam is required at our office, you will be given privacy. An internal examination is the most accurate to assess the integrity of pelvic structures. If you are not comfortable with an internal exam, there are many structures we can treat externally to help increase your function.

If you are ready to make your pelvic health a priority, please call us today to book your appointment.
