Bladder Health/Pelvic Floor

Weak pelvic muscles often lead to incontinence. Some of the muscles do not work together as they should, others are weak and need to be exercised; still others are fatigued from overwork and function better if periodically relaxed. We determine your individual therapy needs, improve your pelvic muscle tone and coordination, and decrease your bladder muscle irritability. Most importantly, you regain control over urination.

It is estimated that at least one-third of adult women are affected by Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. Statistics show that 30 to 40 percent of women suffer from some degree of incontinence in their lifetime, and that almost 10 percent of women will undergo surgery for urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. 30 percent of those undergoing surgery will have at least two surgeries in trying to correct the problem.

We offer Biofeedback, a highly effective pain-free treatment that takes place in a relaxing, private room.  Pelvic floor biofeedback therapy works by training the brain and pelvic muscles to work together to tighten and relax the pelvic floor muscles. Sensors in the vagina or rectum measure the contraction and relaxation of the muscles and patients get visual cues on a computer monitor so that they can learn to better use these muscles. In many cases women have tried “Kegel” exercises to strengthen the pelvic muscles without success, but they have not been contracting the proper muscles or they have been contracting them in an improper manner. Many of these women will have more improvement following pelvic floor biofeedback therapy.

Strong bones are crucial to a healthy, active lifestyle. Yet more than 25 million Americans—40% of whom are women—are at risk of debilitating bone fractures due to Osteoporosis.

We can help you understand and identify risk factors, help you develop a diet rich in calcium, and develop an exercise program that helps you increase bone mass, improve balance, strength, flexibility, and posture.
