The Beginning of Your Pelvic Health Journey
When you arrive at our clinic, you'll be greeted by our friendly and knowledgeable staff or even ME!!! We understand that discussing pelvic health can be sensitive, so we prioritize creating a comfortable and supportive environment from the moment you walk through our doors.
In-Depth Assessment of Your Pelvic Health
Your first visit will typically begin with a thorough evaluation. Dr. Leticia Jacquet, our experienced pelvic floor physical therapist, will take the time to listen to your concerns, medical history, and any symptoms you may be experiencing. This discussion allows us to understand your unique needs and goals.
"The healing is in the patient's story." – Dr. Jacquet
Next, you'll undergo a physical assessment tailored to your condition. Dr. Jacquet will conduct various tests and measurements to evaluate your body's overall functional strength and movement, breathing patterns, your pelvic floor function, muscular strength, and range of motion. These assessments help identify any areas of concern or dysfunction.
Personalized Treatment Plan
Based on the evaluation results, Dr. Jacquet will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan. This plan may include therapeutic exercises, manual techniques, biofeedback, or other specialized interventions designed to address your specific pelvic health issues.
Education and Empowerment
A crucial part of your first visit is education. Dr. Jacquet will take the time to explain your condition, treatment options, and strategies for self-care. You'll gain valuable insights into your pelvic health and how our therapy can improve your well-being.
