Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

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 Pinecrest Outpatient Therapy 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:

  • Strengthening exercises
  • Pelvic floor muscle stimulation
  • Biofeedback for muscle training
  • Internal and/or external therapeutic massage and myofascial release
  • 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.
