Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

Pelvic Floor RehabilitationThe Pelvic Floor consists of muscles that form a sling from the public bone to the coccyx (tail bone). These muscles, like all other muscles in the body begin to "sag" and weaken as we age. Since these muscles provide support and bladder control, organs in the abdominal cavity begin to "sag" as well. As the muscles weaken, you may begin to notice some of the symptoms associated with these conditions and may want some help. If you want help with incontinence issues like those below, Uromedix can design a customized Pelvic Floor Rehab program just for you:

Stress incontinence
• Urge Incontinence
• Urinary frequency & urgency
• Interstitial cystitis
• Chronic pelvic pain
Overactive bladder
• Fecal incontinence
• Chronic constipation
• Rectal pain
• Nocturia
• Frequent urination

Kegels do help. Unfortunately, many patients are unable to perform a proper Kegal contraction with simple instructions and up to one fourth will actually promote inconlinence with their efforts.

Urgency, frequency and urge incontinence are conditions in which the Detrusor Muscle, (the involuntary muscle of the bladder) becomes overactive. Low frequency and low intensity stimulation, along with muscle strengthening, will calm these annoying muscle contractions and symptoms of an overactive bladder. Stress and fecal incontinence usually involve muscle deficit or weakness.The pelvic floor muscles surround the urethra and rectum.

When they became weak, the muscles do not provide the support needed to keep the urethra closed tightly, resulting in urinary incontinence when coughing or sneezing. These muscles also control gas bowel contents. By measuring these muscles frequently and prescribing the exact exercise needed, you can soon gain control again. Recent studies have shown that pelvic floor rehabilitation can actually help those individuals suffering from chronic pelvic pain interstitial cystitis and rectal pain.
