Bladder and Bowel Rehab
This therapy combines a personalized home program with an office evaluation for both female and males. It consists of measurements of the pelvic floor muscles to establish a plan of care for strengthening and electro stimulation of the pelvic floor nerve and muscle tissues. The measurement and stimulation are done by using a tampon shaped device, which is inserted into the vagina for women, or a smaller version, which is inserted into the rectum for men. Patients will find pelvic floor rehabilitation therapy favorable because:
• The treatment is non-invasive and painless.
• It has up to an 80% success rate.
• It has no significant side effects.
• It is affordable compared to other alternatives.
• It is covered by most insurance companies.
• Frequent Nighttime Urination
Pelvic floor rehab is indicated for the following:
• Stress Incontinence
• Urge Incontinence
• Urinary Frequency
• Interstitial Cystitis
• Chronic Pelvic Pain
• Overactive Bladder
• Fecal Incontinence
• Chronic Constipation
• Rectal Pain

Therapy may be appropriate for you if:
• You have a strong desire to take control of your problem.
• You are willing & able to actively participate in your recovery.
• You do not want surgery or medications.
• You are still having problems after surgery & medications are not helping.
