Pelvic Floor Therapy
Pelvic floor therapy combines muscle strengthening exercises with assessment and therapeutic technology to help you retrain your pelvic muscles and neural pathways and regain control. Most sessions last just 30 minutes.
Assessment: Many people don’t want to admit they have incontinence issues, even to their doctors, or recognize that they have an overactive bladder. But if you don’t address the problem, it isn’t going to get better. From your first session, Pelvic floor therapy assessment technology is used to evaluate the extent of pelvic floor weakness and the effectiveness of therapy in strengthening those muscles.
