How many appointments will I need?
This all depends on what is going on, and we will discuss this with you during your first consultation.
Will I definitely need an internal examination?
If an issue with the pelvic floor is identified then an internal examination is the best way to assess muscle function. Continence & Women’s Health Physiotherapists are specially trained to perform these examinations.
For pelvic and sexual pain patients this examination rarely occurs at the first appointment thus avoiding patient anxiety, and there is of course never any pressure to proceed with assessment or treatment unless you are absolutely comfortable.
Will my health insurance cover the cost of my appointments and products?
This depends on your health insurance policy with regard to Physiotherapy cover, its best to discuss it with your insurance provider.
