You will have the best chance of success when you continue with your plan of care at home! Your Physical Therapist will teach you all the tricks of the trade so that you know exactly how to heal your body, maintain your progress, and prepare for whatever comes next. Your patient portal on PTEverywhere will give you access to all your exercises, your health tracker, schedule, and secure HIPPA enabled messaging system so that you can be connected to New Mom Guru anytime.

Your Goals
Your goals are our number one priority. Since we are not enslaved to the insurance machine, we can truly provide patient-centered care for our clients. Visit 1 will help us establish exactly what your goals and priorities are, as well as a timeline for achieving them. Don’t have time to come every week? We can work with that. Not sure if your budget supports weekly visits? That’s ok too, we can find a plan that you are comfortable with.
Exercise
Your first visit will include a comprehensive evaluation to help direct your plan of care. In most cases, this will include a variety of customized exercises that help to balance strength, flexibility, range of motion, and above all, optimize function! Since the pelvic floor does not work in isolation from other areas of your body, your exercise prescription is likely to include activities targeted at the hips, abdominals, back muscles, and even your upper body. Your Physical Therapist will include all your exercises on our secure patient portal, PTEverywhere. You can access pictures, videos, and written descriptions of your exercises anywhere from your phone, tablet, or computer, and we’ve even included a tracking tool to help you keep track of your progress!
Stretches
Flexibility and range of motion are SO important, but especially when it comes to the AMAZING pelvic floor! This area of the body is responsible for so many critical functions (peeing, pooping, stability/balance, motion, sex, childbirth), so it makes sense that we ought to ensure the pelvic floor is working properly. Just like your knee, the pelvic floor can become stiff or lose flexibility for a number of reasons. The good news is, we can combat this issue with expertly prescribed flexibility and range of motion exercises, as well as breathing techniques to make sure your pelvic floor is in tip top shape!
Tips for Daily Life
So much of what we do as Physical Therapists is observing and assessing the body in motion. Think about all the movements and tasks you do in any given day and how they might add up over time…your body goes through a lot! As movement specialists, Physical Therapists are perfectly suited to give you simple + super helpful tips for easing your symptoms, getting through your day, and conserving time + energy.
A Pelvic Exam
Pelvic Floor Evaluations often include an external and internal pelvic exam. This part of an assessment gives us valuable information on how to guide your plan of care and your provider may recommend this as an ongoing method of treatment, however this aspect of our evaluation is optional. You can opt out at any time, for any reason, without issue.
A Plan for Home
You will have the best chance of success when you continue with your plan of care at home! Your Physical Therapist will teach you all the tricks of the trade so that you know exactly how to heal your body, maintain your progress, and prepare for whatever comes next. Your patient portal on PTEverywhere will give you access to all your exercises, your health tracker, schedule, and secure HIPPA enabled messaging system so that you can be connected to New Mom Guru anytime.
