  • How Do I Go About Starting Pelvic Floor Therapies?

    After reading up on pelvic floor therapies I am wanting to try it. Do I need to talk about this with my urologist? Does anyone know if Medicaid will pay for pelvic floor therapy?

    You have to get a referral to a PT place. Try and find someone who treats IC or womens health. I went to regular PT and it made it worse because they didnt know about IC.
    Diagnosis: IC '09, vulvodynia '10, fructose intolerance '06, GERD '06, fibromyalgia '09, IBS '10 and TMJ '09, PCOS '11, genital herpes '12

    Current Meds: Butrans patch, welbutrin, lamictol, geodon, xanax, aldactone, linzess, topimax, trazadone and diflucan as needed.

    Meds tried before: Elmiron, elavil, antibiotics, welbutrin, cymbalta, prozac, nerve blocks, instills, nyastatin, flexerol, percocet, naproxen (which was what I was given for pain for years).

      Will my urologist have to be the one to give me a referral or my primary care doctor?

      Thank you for the information about finding one that treats IC.

        Either one should be able to refer but I'm not familiar with Medicaid regulations, so you will probably need to to check.

          Most insurances will insist on a diagnosis that can be helped by physical therapy. A physical therapist cannot work with a patient without a physician's order.
