What to expect at your evaluation

Patients will have a functional mobility assessment and an external examination, including an assessment of the spine, sacroiliac joints, pelvis, coccyx and muscles surrounding the core, back and pelvic regions. If needed, an internal examination will also be performed of the pelvic floor muscles for tone, pain, tenderness, voluntary control, etc.

Our therapists are committed to creating an individualized treatment plan to not only alleviate your symptoms, but to instruct you on how to manage your symptoms through various techniques and a home exercise program. We value patient education throughout every aspect of your recovery.
