What can I expect?

You will be treated by a physiotherapist with specialist training in assessing and treating your symptoms. Your physiotherapist will be female and you will see the same physiotherapist each time you come for treatment.

Your first appointment can last up to 1 hour and follow-up appointments up to 30 minutes. You will be asked a number of questions relating to your symptoms and, with your consent, your physiotherapist may do a vaginal (internal) examination. This is an important part of your assessment and necessary to assess your pelvic floor function and establish the possible causes of your symptoms. It will ensure that your treatment is tailored specifically to you and help us to improve the outcome of your physiotherapy treatment.
