PELVIC FLOOR DYSFUNCTION

At Summit Rehab, we have two pelvic floor specialists who have earned doctoral degrees and work exclusively with patients experiencing pelvic floor disorders. These therapists treat patients (men, women, and children) who may present with urinary or fecal incontinence, constipation, urinary urgency, urinary frequency, post-operative weakness or pain, interstitial cystitis, endometriosis, and a variety of additional abdominal/pelvic conditions. In addition, our therapists specialize in caring for pregnant and post-partum mothers (babies are welcome!)

Pelvic dysfunction is very prevalent in athletes. We care for the whole person at Summit Rehab by creating an individualized orthopedic and pelvic physical therapy treatment program that is appropriate for your “on and off the field” issues!

Painful Intercourse

Intercourse is an important part of your life and relationships, and painful intercourse can impact both of these. At Summit Rehab, we can address this issue both physically and emotionally!

Urinary dysfunction can present in a variety of ways and can significantly impact your daily life. Our therapists use a combination of hands-on treatment, biofeedback, and other therapy techniques in order to help you reach all of your bladder function goals.

Male Pelvic Dysfunction

Pelvic floor dysfunction is not exclusive to females. Our pelvic floor therapists have completed specific training in order to treat the male population, and they will use their experience and knowledge to help you overcome your pelvic floor symptoms.

Bowel Dysfunction

Many people suffer from bowel dysfunction with symptoms such as constipation, bloating, abdominal discomfort, and fecal incontinence. Our therapists can help guide you on your journey toward achieving optimal bowel health, even if symptoms have been present since childhood.

Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain and tension can present in a variety of ways including painful intercourse, constipation, orthopedic issues, and urinary dysfunction. Pelvic pain is intimately linked with emotion, and at Summit Rehab, we strive to create a safe space where we use a multi-faceted, individualized approach to address every patient’s unique needs. Come see us at Summit Rehab to get the relief that you need with pelvic floor therapy!

Pediatric Pelvic Dysfunction

Many young children and teenagers suffer from symptoms related to the pelvic floor such as incontinence, constipation, and bed-wetting. Our pediatric pelvic floor physical therapy program uses non-invasive treatment techniques to work toward goals set by the child, parent, and therapist.

What will me first visit be like?


At Summit Rehab, you will be in one of our private treatment rooms with one of our pelvic health specialists, Heather or Morgan, who are both licensed and board certified physical therapists. The therapist will complete a review of your medical history as well as your subjective report. She will also complete an external functional movement assessment and then an internal pelvic floor examination if appropriate. The internal pelvic floor examination is done either intravaginally or intrarectally in order to identify how the muscles inside your pelvis are working. Once the exam in complete, you and your therapist will go over the results, make goals for the following treatment sessions, and answer any questions that you may have. An individualized treatment plan will be made tailored to your specific needs and will be both evidence-based and holistic.




How long is each appointment?


The initial evaluation takes approximately 60 minutes to complete. Each follow-up treatment session will last approximately 45 to 60 minutes.




How do I make an appointment?


You can call our front office at 816-554-6003 in order to set up your initial evaluation. Our front office staff will ask you a few questions regarding insurance information and details regarding your medical provider’s referral. If you leave a message, we will get back to you within 1-2 business days.




What are your hours?


Heather and Morgan offer individual hour long treatment sessions at our clinic at the following times:
Monday – Thursday: 7 AM to 6 PM
Friday: 7 AM to 12 PM




How many visits will I need to complete in order to get better?


This can be a hard question to answer without completing the initial evaluation. The number of visits can vary based on the individual’s needs and progress. We usually write our typical plan of cares for 6 to 12 visits. Our goal is for you to see some improvement by the 4th to 6th visit. We see our patients one to two times each week depending on each diagnosis.




Do you take insurance/what does it cost?


Yes! We take all insurances except Medicaid. Co-pays are dependent per insurance plan. If you do not have medical insurance, our private pay rate per session (both initial evaluation and follow-up) is $60.




What do I bring to my first visit?


You will need to bring your prescription/referral from your medical provider, insurance cards, and photo I.D.
If you do not have a prescription/referral from your medical provider, you choose either option:
Private pay – $60
Self-Refer – This means you are allowed to have an initial evaluation completed but if you would like reimbursement from your insurance company, you will need to obtain a physician’s signature in order to continue your plan of care.
