What is Pelvic Floor Rehab?


    • Pelvic floor rehab is a non-surgical training program that involves strengthening and relaxing the pelvic muscles that are often responsible for urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence/constipation, painful intercourse, and chronic pelvic pain.
    • Studies have shown upwards of 90% improvement with symptoms of urinary incontinence, fecal/gas incontinence, chronic pelvic pain, and painful intercourse.
    • For your convenience, we have pelvic floor rehab therapy available on Saturdays.

Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation and Stimulation
 

 

    • PFR is a non-surgical method of retraining the muscles that help control bowel and bladder function.
    • We find 75-80% of the patients will attain significant improvement or cure with this type of therapy.
    • We recommend appointments every week depending on symptoms and progress. The average number of visits is six.
    • A change in your symptoms should be noticed in 3-4 visits, if non-surgical therapy is going to be successful for you. Improvement is usually noted on your muscle tracings before you notice an improvements in your symptoms.
    • Remember, loss of bladder control did not occur overnight. We are working the same muscles that have become weak. Success does take some time and most importantly it requires specific exercise recommendations to be followed.
    • Follow-up visits usually take 30 minutes.
