How can a pelvic floor therapist help me?
Our pelvic floor muscles are just like any other muscle group in our bodies, and sometimes they can get out of balance. Pregnancy and the process of labor ask a tremendous amount of the body and the pelvic floor, and sometimes issues do not resolve on their own, impacting our daily activities.
Pelvic floor therapy can help relieve common, but treatable issues that arise during pregnancy and postpartum such as:
As an occupational therapist, I take into consideration more than what's going on with your body. In therapy sessions we can also address:
Why would I want to see a therapist who does not take my insurance?
Therapists who bill directly to insurance must follow very specific guidelines for treating their clients. This includes how many sessions are covered, the amount of time spent with their client, and sometimes even what type of treatment they can use in the session. Clients may think they will pay less because they only have a copay, but still end up with surprise bills such as treatment not being covered or bills from not meeting their deductible.
Because I work for you, and not your insurance company, I am able to provide you with the treatment that you need in that session on that day. We can spend more time on manual therapy if we need to, or more time focusing on self-care and adjusting to new routines if we need to. The cost of each session is always the same and you will never receive a surprise bill. This also gives me more time to focus on what my client needs, rather than meeting paperwork and billing guidelines. HSA and FSA benefits can still be used, and I am able to provide you with a superbill so you can potentially be reimbursed by your insurance company through your out-of-network benefits.
