Incontinence and Pelvic Pain Program

If you have poor bladder or bowel control, and/or pelvic pain, our Incontinence and Pelvic Pain Program is designed to provide you relief. Our physical therapists are specially trained in non-surgical treatment, which focuses on:

  • Improving sensory awareness
  • Decreasing muscle spasm
  • Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles

What You Can Expect

After our therapist completes an individual assessment to fully understand your needs, your treatment plan will be developed. It may include:

  • Pelvic floor muscle training
  • Manual therapy techniques
  • Behavior re-education
  • Biofeedback and electrical stimulation

Because pelvic pain and bladder/bowel control problems are often related to orthopedic issues, we also emphasize stretching and strengthening of the back, hips, pelvic (sacroiliac) joints, and abdominal muscles.
