Practice Considerations for PFMT

  • A comprehensive assessment would be conducted by a health provider who has the appropriate knowledge and skills pertaining to one’s functional abilities in performing PFMT, such as a nurse continence advisor (NCA) or a pelvic health physiotherapist
  • PFMT program should comprise at least eight contractions, performed three times per day
  • Do not use perineometry or pelvic floor electromyography as biofeedback as a routine part of PFMT
  • Continue the exercise program if PFMT is beneficial.
