Pelvic Floor Therapy
Pelvic Floor Therapy is a conservative, non-surgical therapy used to treat such disorders as:
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Urinary retention
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Fecal incontinence
- Urinary urgency and frequency (overactive bladder)
- Interstitial cystitis
- Painful Intercourse
- Chronic Constipation
Through a series of 6 weekly sessions, our CMA will work with you on behavioral and lifestyle strategies including dietary, physical exercise, and weight loss. Using special equipment, she will assess pelvic floor muscle strength as well as vaginal and rectal tone and prescribe a routine of exercises especially for strengthening the pelvic floor and increasing rectal-vaginal tone. She will educate you and instruct you on proper isolation of your pelvic floor muscles. Our state of the art equipment can provide visual feedback to help you in targeting the appropriate muscles. Occasionally mild, passive electrical stimulation will be used to assist with muscle re-education and to help restore and maintain their health.
These services are covered by Medicare and most private insurances, but we would encourage you to check with your insurance provider as to the specifics of your individual health care benefit plan.
