Are you dealing with incontinence, urgency, or pelvic pain? Fortunately, Pelvic Floor Therapy (PFT) is available to improve your bladder health! This non-surgical option is a great tool to use to re-educate your pelvic floor muscles for optimal performance.
Discover the reasons why we love pelvic floor therapy for our patients:
Pelvic Floor Therapy Addresses Multiple Issues
Many people believe that PFT only helps incontinence issues. (Incontinence is a lack of control over your bladder.) While this therapy can definitely help incontinence, it also fixes problems that are associated with urgency, painful intercourse, and bladder and pelvic discomfort. PFT also can be used to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and contribute to their overall health.
Pelvic Floor Therapy Helps Men & Women
People associate bladder issues with women. However, millions of men across America suffer from bladder problems such as urgency and incontinence, as well. PFT is a wonderful tool for both men and women in order to live a life that is not controlled by the bladder.
Pelvic Floor Therapy is Directed by a Urology Specialist
Unlike other pelvic exercises where you’re left to guess whether or not you’re doing it right, PFT is directed by a trained urology specialist. PFT is spread out among four therapy sessions where a specialist will determine exactly which muscles need attention. The specialist will then educate and guide you during your therapy session.
Pelvic Floor Therapy & Technology Work Together
Technology is so incredibly advanced that it’s no surprise it can be used during a PFT session. To ensure accuracy, a computer monitors your muscle’s activity during a PFT session. Additionally, if needed, your specialist may decide that electrical stimulation is needed to help your muscles contract. With this technological help, your PFT session can go beyond human effort.
