Incontinence and Pelvic Pain Program

Incontinence Therapy is a conservative, non-surgical approach to treatment of incontinence (involuntary loss of bladder or bowel control) commonly caused by infections, pregnancy, surgery, and obesity.

Older children (age seven and above) who experience nighttime wetting and female athletes who experience incontinence can also benefit from incontinence therapy. 

Benefits 

Conservative, non-surgical approach to incontinence and pelvic pain

Decreasing or eliminating urinary or fecal incontinence

Improving quality of life

Treatment Options

The program advocates a self-help approach consisting of exercise, dietary modification, relaxation techniques and biofeedback. (Biofeedback helps a person locate and isolate the muscles important for bladder and/or bowel control). 

Our specially-trained physical therapist teaches patients simple exercises that help overcome incontinence. The program can typically be mastered in two to six weeks. 

Techniques

Biofeedback for both muscle strengthening or relaxation of pelvic floor

Electrical stimulation for pelvic floor muscle strengthening

Pelvic floor relaxation through modalities such as TENS, massage and/or biofeedback to eliminate or decrease pelvic pain.

Experience

Our therapists have over two decades worth of experience in women’s health therapy and have Level 1 certification of Women’s Health Physical Therapy through the American Physical Therapy Association.
