I support the BoPT defining Pelvic Floor PT as non-invasive

While I believe that informed consent should be obtained prior to performing pelvic floor PT, as well as other procedures that may cause discomfort, adverse outcomes, or trigger strong emotional responses, I believe pelvic floor PT should continue to be defined as non-invasive by the BoPT.  I see pelvic floor PT, when performed by well-trained and skilled professionals, as valuable to address a wide variety of conditions, and believe it should be treated in a fashion similar to dry-needling.
