Pelvic Floor Muscle Training
Treatment for bladder and bowel control, voiding dysfunction, pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction.
Like other muscles in your body, your pelvic floor muscles will become stronger with a repetitive exercise program. You will be taught how to isolate your pelvic floor muscle, and instructed on how to perform pelvic muscle exercises. Muscle training is individualized. The specially trained nurse will determine the treatment best suited for you and prescribe a course of therapy for your specific condition. Attending your therapy sessions and following the exercise recommendation from your nurse trainer, will enable you to have the most successful outcome. Changes in your symptoms are usually noticed within 3-4 weeks.
Appointments are scheduled weekly for 8 visits. Your first visit will include a consultation with the nurse. She will attain a health history, explain the therapy and answer any questions you may have. You will then participate in your first therapy session.
