  • Does my insurance cover this?
    Pelvic health therapy is generally covered by insurance under your out of network physical therapy benefits. Because we are out of network, we do not bill insurance on your behalf; however, we do provide super bills that you can use to submit to your insurance independently. We do expect payment at time of service, and accept cash, check, credit cards, and HSA/FSA cards for payment.
  • Do you take Medicare?
    Momentum Physiotherapy and its providers are not participating providers with Medicare. This means that we cannot provider Superbills to Medicare recipients for reimbursement. We suggest finding providers who do accept Medicare, and can assist you in this. If you have further questions, contact us for more information.
  • What does an evaluation look like?
    A physiotherapy evaluation with Momentum Physiotherapy includes a thorough discussion of current concerns, past medical history, and goals. We conduct a full assessment of strength, mobility, flexibility and musculature, and start treating to reduce pain and improve function. Treatment may including soft tissue work, massage, joint mobilization, trigger point dry needling, corrective exercise, taping, and a full explanation of anatomy and the sources of pain or complaint. In a pelvic health evaluation, an internal pelvic floor assessment, either vaginal or rectal, may be warranted to fully understand the nature of your symptoms. We will discuss this in detail before any treatment, and it is not a requirement for any session. After the assessment and treatment, we will work together to create a plan that works best for you and your goals.
  • What is trigger point dry needling? Is that acupuncture?
    Trigger point dry needling is an intramuscular manual therapy technique designed to help reduce muscle spasm and associated pain. It is NOT acupuncture, but does use very small needles similar to acupuncture needles. Trigger point dry needling is treating a 'knot' in the muscle and addresses personalized and specific points in the body at a much deeper level than acupuncture.
  • I had a baby, but I feel fine. Do I need pelvic health PT?
    In short, YES! In European countries such as France, it is standard practice for birthing persons to get 10 visits of physiotherapy after delivery! Even if your delivery went amazing, pelvic health physiotherapy can help you reconnect to your postpartum self and set goals that are healthy and attainable.
  • My appointment is scheduled during my menstrual cycle. Can I come in anyway?
    Absolutely! This is a great time to get treatment, especially to be kind to yourself and your body. Everything during our sessions will be based on your comfort level, and internal pelvic floor work is not required if you prefer not to.
