Your assessment and subsequent treatment sessions will be conducted by Rebekah Kenos a fully qualified female Physiotherapist who has special interests and training in pregnancy related musculoskeletal concerns, pelvic floor assessment and rehabilitation. Depending on your individual needs, the physiotherapist may need to assess the strength and quality of the pelvic floor muscles to best guide your rehabilitation.
Assessment may include ultrasound examination, subjective questioning and/or an internal vaginal examination. Internal vaginal examination is the most accurate way of assessing pelvic floor muscle bulk, strength, activation and efficiency. This will also help to detect any areas of prolapse or decreased sensitivity.
There are minimal risks associated with undergoing an internal vaginal examination. However, if you have any concerns or questions regarding the assessment or would prefer not to undergo an internal examination, please do not sign below and discuss this with the Physiotherapist during your initial session.
It has been explained (above) what is involved with the assessment and I understand the information that has been provided. I give consent for the Physiotherapist Rebekah Kenos to assess my pelvic floor function and bladder and bowel habits if this is required for my particular situation. I understand I can withdraw my consent at any stage without compromising my care in any way.
