What is pelvic floor physical therapy?
Pelvic floor physical therapy is just like any other physical therapy but focused on strengthening and improving coordination in muscles in your pelvic floor. Our clinicians are licensed physical therapists who received additional training, specialization, and certification in treating pelvic floor conditions. Get treated virtually via telehealth from the comfort and privacy of your own home with Comet! Our clinicians will work with you to develop an individualized home exercise program!
How much does it cost?
Initial evaluations (45 minutes) are $100 and subsequent follow-up visits (30 minutes) are $75. We do not take insurance but we are happy to put together a superbill for you upon request ([email protected]).
Does it work?
Yes, clinical evidence for pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT) is very well documented. In fact, a study from Stanford Urogynecology recommended PFPT as a “first-line, low-risk, minimally invasive therapy” for preventing and treating pelvic floor conditions and concluded that “PFPT should be commonly recommended during pregnancy and after birth to prevent and treat urinary incontinence, POP and postpartum sexual dysfunction.”
Do I need a referral?
No, most states, including Virginia, are direct access states and you are able to see a physical therapist without a referral from your doctor for up to 30 days. If you would like us to reach out to your provider on your behalf for a referral at that point, please send us an email at [email protected]!
Do I need to drive anywhere?
No, our services are remote video-based consultations you take from the comfort and privacy of your own home.
