Pelvic FloorRehabilitation

Overview

Your pelvic floor muscles run like a hammock from your pubic bone to your tailbone, supporting your bladder, uterus, urethra and rectum. These muscles and ligaments hold your organs in place and help them function properly.

Many factors can weaken pelvic floor muscles, including pregnancy, childbirth, age, weight and lifestyle. The weakened muscles may cause issues with bladder control and urinary incontinence, and pelvic pain or discomfort.

Many of these conditions can be treated with rehabilitation – and without surgery. Our specialized care of pelvic floor rehab specialists can help you regain health, confidence, comfort and quality of life.

Symptoms

Weak pelvic floor muscles can cause issues with bladder control, including urinary incontinence. You may also experience pelvic prolapse and pelvic pain.

Services & Treatment

For many women, pelvic floor conditions, including incontinence, can be treated without surgery. Our pelvic floor rehabilitation specialists can help you retrain and strengthen your muscles. And when your pelvic muscles are stronger, you’ll be better able to manage these conditions without surgery. You’ll need a referral for physical or occupational therapy from your doctor or other health care provider.

We’ll develop a personalized care plan, based on your needs. Your plan may include:

  • Behavioral and lifestyle changes to help you retrain your pelvic muscles
  • Biofeedback, a painless process that uses small sensors and a computer monitor to help you visualize and identify muscle activity. Learn more about pelvic muscle dysfunction biofeedback from the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA).
  • Information and education about your anatomy, diet and fluids, personal care and other related issues
  • Therapy techniques to improve muscle and bone alignment
  • Pelvic floor muscle exercise therapy to optimize proper function
