Frequently Asked Questions

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


1. What Is A Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist?

A pelvic floor physical therapist is a physical therapist who takes extra training and education to work with pelvic floor dysfunction. A pelvic floor PT is one who treats dysfunctions based on problems with pooping, peeing, sex, pregnancy, or postpartum problems. Pelvic floor PT can address men and women.


2. What Should I Expect For My First Visit?

In person sessions: expect to spend an hour and a half with your therapist to complete the entire evaluation. Wear clothing that is comfortable and easy to move in, you will most likely be asked to perform tasks such as squatting, moving, or even lifting. If it is determined necessary, you may have an internal vaginal or rectal exam (with your consent) and this involves the therapist's fingers and lubrication. The musculature throughout the pelvic floor will be assessed. This can possibly contribute to some soreness. If you have questions or concerns about your first visit or the internal examination please speak with your doctor prior to your appointment. Virtual Sessions: make sure you have wifi and internet connections. You will perform movements, but you will not need to show your genitals on the video. This will not be recorded unless you have requested.


3. Do You Take My Insurance?

FEMMEmpowerment and Advocacy, LLC is a "fee for service" provider, meaning we do not go through insurance companies. This allows us to offer you the most value for your treatments. There is a possibility you could potentially be reimbursed for your out of network contributions and if you wish to try, request a superbill be send to you following your visit so you can submit to your insurance company. Your therapist will help you with this.


4. What Will The Cost Be?

Each session is the same price, whether in the clinic space or in your home. Currently each session is $250.00/session. Your first session is 90 minutes and follow up sessions are 75 minutes. After your first session, you will have the opportunity to discuss pay per visit, purchasing a package of a number of sessions with a discount, or payment plans that work best for you.
