Vulvar Pain Functional Questionnaire (V-Q). This questionnaire, which was developed by Institute founders Kathe Wallace and Holly Herman along with Kathie Hummel-Berry, PT, PhD, is designed to help the practitioner assess how pelvic pain effects the patient's everyday life.
To score the VQ: add numerical values assigned to each response. These appear next to the check-boxes. The higher the score the greater the functional limitation. A diminishing score represents improvement.
PFDI- 20 This patient hand out asks patients to report certain bowel, bladder, or pelvic symptoms and how much those symptoms impact the patient's life.
Herman & Wallace faculty have put together a list of articles and other publications that have been instrumental in the field of pelvic rehabilitation. This list can be used to study for exams, augment course learning, or satisfy curiosity.
