There are a couple of websites that are great resources for finding a pelvic floor therapist.
|Women's Health PT Locator|
The first is the Section on Women's Health (SOWH) website. The SOWH is a branch of the American Physical Therapy Association. Their website can be found here. If you go to their website and look at the options at the top, you will find a tab that says Our Patients. Under this tab you will find a lot of great information for patients, such as common conditions that a Women's Health therapist treats, commonly asked questions, and advice on how to start a conversation with your doctor about your concerns about your pelvic issues. Though "Women's Health" is in the title of this group of therapists, many of them treat pelvic floor dysfunction in both men and women. There is also a link to the Women's Health PT Locator which can be found by clicking below the image to the left. A Women's Health PT can be added to this list by being a member of the American Physical Therapy Association.
Another great resource for finding a pelvic floor therapist is the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute, which can be found here. Herman & Wallace provides continuing education courses for the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction. They provide a practitioner directory that is under the tab Products + Resources. A provider will only be added to this directory if they have taken a Herman & Wallace course. It can also be linked to below.
When you are searching for a PT, you should ask what types of pelvic floor dysfunction that they treat. There are some therapists out there that only have experience treating incontinence and may not be a good fit for someone with chronic pelvic pain. You want to find someone with experience treating your specific issues.
As another resource, there is a great article titled "What is a ‘Good’ Pelvic Floor PT Session Like?" on the Pelvic Pain Rehab blog that discusses what you should be looking for when you go to a pelvic floor therapist.
Good luck with your search!
