Frequently Asked Questions
What is the pelvic floor?
The pelvic floor is a set of muscles that line the pelvic bowl and perform several essential functions, including supporting pelvic organs, stabilizing the pelvis and lumbar spine, and aiding bowel/bladder control and sexual function. These muscles are a crucial component of our core. They also contribute to sphincteric control and postural support.
Weakness in these muscles can lead to a variety of symptoms, such as involuntary leakage of urine or feces, passing of gas, or contributing to pelvic girdle or low back pain. Conversely, when the pelvic floor muscles are too tight, they can cause pain within the pelvis, difficulty emptying the bowels and/or bladder, painful intercourse, discomfort during gynecological exams, abdominal pain, and more. Pregnancy and delivery can cause numerous changes in the pelvic floor muscles, necessitating some postpartum care and attention, even after cesarean sections.
What are the direct access laws?
New York allows direct patient access to a physical therapist with some provisions. A physical therapist can treat direct access patients when a licensed PT treats a patient for no more than ten visits or 30 days, whichever comes first, or the licensed PT has three or more years of experience and is at least 21 years old. The PT may also provide the patient with a written notice at the beginning of treatment stating that the patient’s health plan or insurer might not cover the services without a referral.
The PT must keep a copy of this written notice in the patient’s file, and the notice must contain all of the following:
- Start date of the patient’s treatment
- Name and address of the patient
- The patient’s signature and date of signature, validating that they read and understand the notice
- The PT’s name, address, signature, and date of signature
What do I need to wear or bring with me?
You should dress in comfortable, loose clothing that allows you to move easily and doesn’t restrict circulation. Depending on your condition, your physical therapist may also recommend special shoes or a brace. You should also bring any paperwork related to your medical history, including x-rays, ultrasounds, and doctor’s notes.
Is there anything I can do before my appointment to prepare?
Yes! Make sure you arrive for your session well-rested so that you can give it your full attention and energy. It is also helpful if you keep track of how much pain medication (if any) you take prior to the appointment so that the physical therapist can adjust the intensity of treatment accordingly.
How long will my physical therapy sessions last?
Sessions typically last 30-60 minutes depending on your condition and the types of techniques used. Your physical therapist will give you an estimate when you first arrive for your appointment.
Are there any exercises I can do at home between appointments to help improve my condition?
Yes! Your physical therapist may provide specific exercise recommendations for you to try in between visits, which will help speed up your recovery and progress faster toward reaching your goals. It’s important to follow these carefully and always check with your PT before starting a new exercise program if you have any questions or concerns.
What if I have questions after my physical therapy session?
Your physical therapist should be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your treatment plan before and after each visit. You can also contact the clinic directly for further assistance. We want you to get the most out of every session!
Will insurance cover my physical therapy?
It depends on your insurance plan. Most plans cover some or all of the costs associated with physical therapy, but you should check with your provider to determine coverage and any associated fees.
How often will I need to attend physical therapy sessions?
The frequency of visits will depend on your individual goals and condition, but typically it is recommended that patients attend 2-3 times per week for a minimum of 4-6 weeks in order to maximize results. Your therapist will provide more details during your initial appointment.
How long will it take for me to see results?
Every person’s situation is unique; therefore the amount of time needed to reach goals varies. With commitment and dedication from both you and your physical therapist, you can expect to start seeing results within a few weeks. The more positive lifestyle changes you make, the faster your progress will be!
Will my physical therapist be able to answer any questions I have about my condition?
Yes! Your physical therapist should be available to discuss any concerns or questions you have regarding your condition or treatment plan. Don’t hesitate to bring up any issues that may arise during the course of therapy.
What if I feel too much pain during a session?
If at any time during your physical therapy session you experience increased pain, it’s important to let your therapist know so they can adjust the intensity or technique as necessary. Your therapist will work with you to make sure that treatment is comfortable and effective for you
How will I know when I no longer need physical therapy?
Your physical therapist should be able to provide guidance on when it is appropriate to stop attending physical therapy sessions based on your progress, goals, and overall health status. It’s important to listen to your therapist and continue with treatment until they feel you are ready to move on.
