Conditions That May Benefit From Therapy

Patients often seek this service if they are experiencing any of the following:

  • Dysmenorrhea
  • Endometriosis
  • Incontinence
  • Lower back pain
  • Prolapse
  • Sexual pain (during or after intercourse)
  • SI joint pain
  • Tailbone discomfort

What to Expect

The first step is completing some paperwork which Rutu will send 3–4 days prior to your appointment. It will include a detailed history, which includes past surgical and medical history, sexual, gynecologic or obstetric history, and any medications you’re taking. You will also be able to indicate where the pain is, what kind of pain it is and when it began. You can email the paperwork back to Dr. Rutu or bring the forms in to your first appointment.

Rutu will perform a comprehensive orthopedic examination, paying close attention to the lumbar spine and hips, posture and gait.

An evaluation of both internal (if you agree to it) and external muscles will also be performed. You may be asked to sit, stand, and walk so Rutu can identify any existing posture or joint issues affecting the pelvic floor muscles.

The assessment helps her to determine whether the therapy is appropriate and guides the development of an appropriate care plan. Rutu will explain everything in clear language and in detail so you know how the therapy may benefit you.

Through a tailored treatment plan, Rutu manipulates pelvic floor muscles to restore their function and strength.

Appropriate techniques are also utilized to strengthen muscles, alleviate contractions that are associated with overactive bladder, and keep the bladder, rectum and uterus in their correct positions. The ultimate goal of the therapy is to help ease pain and related symptoms, and restore normal functioning.

There are multiple techniques Rutu can use to treat those muscles internally that will help them with future sessions. However, if you’re not comfortable with having your internal muscles addressed, there are many techniques she can do outside as well.
