PELVIC HEALTH SCREENING QUESTIONNAIRE

Not sure if pelvic health physical therapy is right for you? Take the Cozean Pelvic Dysfunction self-assessment questionnaire. Firstly, check all of the signs and symptoms of pelvic dysfunction that apply. After that, count how many of the circles you checked. In short, if you checked more than 3 of the circles, pelvic floor dysfunction is likely.
