A pelvic floor physical therapist is a therapist who has advanced training in the evaluation and treatment of the pelvic floor muscles. Areas of treatment include bladder dysfunction, bowel dysfunction, sexual pain, and prenatal/postpartum musculoskeletal care.
What Should I Expect During My First Appointment with a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist?
Your pelvic floor physical therapist will take a thorough history and discuss your symptoms. You will be educated on general anatomy of the pelvic floor and how this relates to your symptoms. Based on this discussion, an evaluation will be performed. This may include observation and palpation of your lower back, hips, abdominal wall and pelvis. Your doctor of physical therapy may suggest an internal pelvic floor muscle assessment to further investigate the pelvic floor's role in your symptoms. Don’t panic! No speculum is involved and it is your choice.
Do I need a Physician Referral To See You?
No. In the state of Massachusetts we have direct access meaning you do not need a physician's referral.
We are always happy to partner with your other healthcare providers. If you do have a physician's referral, you can bring it to your first appointment.
Do You Take My Insurance?
We strive to provide the highest quality of care for our patients in a private, one-on-one setting. In order to provide the best care without insurance companies dictating your care, we have chosen not to contract with insurance companies.
We accept all forms of payment including flexible saving and health savings accounts.
We are happy to work with all of our patients to determine their plan, including frequency of appointments and payment plans as needed.
Medicare Beneficiaries: Because we are not Participating Medicare Providers, we can only accept Medicare beneficiaries as wellness clients.

Why Choose an Out-Of-Network PT?
There are many benefits for choosing an out-of-network provider for physical therapy. No referral or authorization is needed for treatment, you will never get a surprise bill in the mail, and insurance will not dictate your care. With insurance, PT is a covered service but only after the deductible has been met meaning you're paying full price out-of-pocket anyway until you reach that $3000, $4000 or $5000 deductible.
Can I Submit for Reimbursement?
You may be able to receive reimbursement from your insurance company based on your "out-of-network" benefits. We will be happy to provide you with a superbill which is an itemized document that has all of the necessary information to submit to your insurance company.
Seeking and obtaining reimbursement for services is the sole responsibility of the patient, though, we are here to provide assistance.
