Our program treats both men and women suffering from bladder and bowel incontinence and/or pain in the pelvic region. Pelvic floor muscles may become weak, tight or spastic, as a result of disease, surgery, childbirth or other trauma.
Specialized physical therapists at Good Samaritan Medical Center work with you to evaluate the cause of your pain or limitation in function. They perform an initial evaluation and develop a program to address your needs.
Treatment options include:
Pelvic floor muscle stimulation
Biofeedback for muscle training
Internal and/or external therapeutic massage
Education in bladder retraining, dietary irritants and relaxation techniques
Development of an individualized home exercise plan
A physician’s prescription is required for physical therapy. Pelvic floor rehabilitation is covered by most insurance companies.
