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!)

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.
