Screening for Patient with Low Back Pain and Hip Pain

Do you urinate more than 8 times a day?

Do you have difficulty initiating urination?

Do you have burning with urination?

Do you feel that your bladder is not emptied after you have urinated?

Do you experience any urine loss (on way to bathroom or coughing/sneezing)?

Do you feel pelvic pressure?

Do you have less than one bowel movement every 3 days?

Do you have to strain or facilitate to have a bowel movement?

Is your stool lumpy/hard or have cracks on it?

Do you have pain during or after a bowel movement?

Do you experience painful intercourse?

Do you experience pelvic pain, i.e. vaginal, rectal, penile, testicular, perineal or pelvic?

Do you have pelvic pain with sitting?


If you answered YES to any of the above questions, problems with your pelvic floor muscles, fascia or nerves may be contributing to your symptoms/pain. You may be a candidate for an assessment from a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist to assess your pelvic floor through internal palpation (vaginal or rectal exam). Please speak to your treating health care provider for more details.
