Pelvic Floor Therapy
Non-surgical pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation
This therapy involves a pain-free electrical stimulation treatment to the pelvic floor muscles. This treatment is followed by a specific, patient independent pelvic floor muscle exercise program that can be performed while the patient is in the privacy of their own home or can even be performed in public as the exercises are discreet.
Your Body’s Core Functions
The pelvic floor is made of muscles that physically support your internal organs and control essential functions such as urination, bowel movements and sexual relations. The lack of conscious control of these muscles can be influenced by aging, childbirth, stress, trauma, nerve damage, and a number of metabolic conditions. Like physical therapy for your pelvis, rehabilitation of the pelvic floor is a remarkable alternative to surgery. With a simple, painless, electrical stimulation treatment followed by a personalized exercise program, this treatment can help to restore you to normal bowel and bladder control.
Pelvic Floor Therapy can be used to treat...
- Urinary Incontinence – loss of bladder control, bladder leakage
- Overactive Bladder – frequent urination
- Urinary Retention - incomplete bladder emptying
- Fecal Incontinence – loss of bowel control, bowel leakage
