How do I find a pelvic floor therapist in Chicago?

Find a pelvic floor therapist through Partum Health in Chicago, Illinois. Partum Health pelvic floor therapists are experts in guiding expectant parents through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum rehabilitation. We offer free introductory calls, a care coordinator to provide support in between weekly pelvic floor sessions, and in-network care with major insurances.

It is extremely common to experience pelvic floor weakness during and after pregnancy, regardless of whether you have a natural birth or C-section. By starting physical therapy during your second trimester, you can prepare your body to give birth, reduce the risk of pelvic prolapse, and relieve pelvic pain. 

Is pelvic floor therapy covered by insurance?

Yes, pelvic floor therapy is covered by insurance when you are experiencing symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction, such as bladder leakage, urgency, and pain during intercrouse. At Partum Health in Chicago, pelvic floor therapists are in-network with BlueCross BlueShield, Aetna, Cigna, and United Healthcare.

When you choose to see an in-network pelvic floor therapist, you will pay only a copay for each session after meeting your annual deductible. Copays might range from $20-60 in Illinois, depending on your insurance coverage. Other ways to offset pelvic floor physical therapy costs include using an HSA/FSA.

What can I expect in a pelvic floor physical therapy session?

Your first pelvic floor physical therapy session will include an evaluation of your physical concerns, review of your history and needs, and recommendations for a plan of care.

If your visit is in-person, part of your evaluation will be a hands-on assessment from your certified Physical Therapist. Depending on the reason for your visit and your pregnancy status, this evaluation might include an internal pelvic floor muscle assessment. An internal exam is helpful in assessing the deep layer of pelvic floor muscles for strength, length, endurance, and coordination. It can also be useful to assess for any scars that have formed since delivery if you are postpartum. The choice to have a pelvic exam is entirely yours, and you can change your mind at any point. If you and your physical therapist decide that an internal pelvic exam is appropriate, it will be done in a private room. The exam consists of a gloved finger being inserted either vaginally or rectally to assess your muscles. If an internal exam is performed, you will be given a sheet to drape yourself with, so it does not matter what you wear to pelvic floor therapy.

If you are doing pelvic floor therapy at home, please try to find a quiet place with good lighting. You might need space to stretch and move around, so keep that in mind when choosing your location. Be sure to bring a way to jot down notes; you will have access to our recommendations through your patient portal, but you may want to write some things down in your own words. Your visit might conclude with some “homework” you can do between sessions to hasten your improvement!

How long does pelvic floor therapy take to work?

Pelvic floor therapy can take as little as 2-3 weeks to work, with most patients seeing relief within the 6 month treatment period. It takes time to form new habits and build muscle strength through pelvic floor exercises. Your pelvic floor therapist will get to know your lifestyle goals, obstetric history, and any possible comorbidities, and then provide a recommendation for treatment frequency and length.

Do I need a pelvic floor therapy even if I've had a C-section?

Pelvic floor therapy can help support recovery regardless of whether you've given birth vaginally or via C-section. A C-section is major abdominal surgery, and like all surgery, physical therapy is critical during the recovery period.

Regardless of how you deliver, the strain of pregnancy impacts your pelvic floor muscles, vaginal and vulvar tissues. This stress can cause issues with urinary, bowel, and sexual function. With a C-section, you can also experience restriction of the tissue around your healing incision, which can lead to pain and limited function post pregnancy. A pelvic physical therapist can help you work through these impairments and restore your pelvic floor function and strength.
