This post doesn't include a catchy title and it doesn't include catchy text. This is a short, simple and real recording of me explaining the pelvic floor and purpose for internal examinations to my patient. In this 2 minute clip, I talk through:
The anatomy of the pelvis
What the pelvic floor is
The pelvic floor's job
Why we need a strong and flexible pelvic floor
Why an internal examination is a useful part of the pelvic floor PT examination
And as an important reminder, an internal examination is never a requirement. While a pelvic exam is a great way for us to get important and useful information about your body, what's most important is that you remain comfortable throughout the entirety of your exam. You can always choose not to have a pelvic exam or defer to a future visit.
For more information, watch this video we made on what to expect from your initial PT visit. If you'd like to learn more about how pelvic floor physical therapy can help you, contact us for a free 15 minute phone consultation.
