Frequently Ask Questions:

What age is this therapy for?

Any age can have pelvic floor dysfunction, from a variety of causes.  Depending on the patients symptoms, age and sex, their treatment will be modified to best and comfortably treat their symptoms.

 

Do I have to have Internal therapy?

No.  If internal therapy is recommended, it is the most accurate evaluation and treatment, yet Dr. Kristina will be happy to modify your treatment so that you feel the most comfortable, yet get the results you came for.

 

Do I have to get a referral from my primary care physician?

No referral is needed.  Dr. Kristina encourages her patients to bring as much information with you to your appointment, and can easily obtain the needed information from your Doctor (with the patient's consent).

Items to bring if you have them: Reports from your other Doctors, MRI / Xray reports and CD, test results, chart notes from other Doctors or Therapists, etc.
