Professional Pelvic Floor Muscle Therapy improves patients' lives by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles following childbirth. Therapy decreases the risks and/or symptoms of urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse (cystocele/rectocele).
The pelvic floor muscles, located in the perineum, are responsible for bowel, bladder and sexual function in addition to their role as stabilizer or a core muscle. There are two main categories of pelvic floor dysfunction: under active (weak) pelvic floor muscles and overactive (tight) pelvic floor muscles.
This pain-free non-surgical method can potentially spare the need for surgery. It helps to retrain pelvic floor muscles as way to help control bladder, bower and sexual function. Patients treated attain a 75-90% rate of improvement.
