Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

Beaumont’s pelvic floor rehabilitation program is designed to meet each individuals need after an evaluation by one of our specialty trained licensed physical therapists.  
Evaluation is individualized and specific to each patient’s condition and concerns.  When you have your appointment, your pelvic floor physical therapist will explain in detail the assessment and treatment options and get your input and consent.  Your therapist will also spend time educating you on the condition, anatomy, how the assessment will proceed as well as possible treatment interventions, and most importantly take time to answer all of your questions.
