Consortia Health has developed a one-of-a-kind system of assesment, treatment, and education for pelvic floor disorders called Pelvic floor therapy. Our specialty-trained clinicians develop an individualized treatment plan to address your specific needs, such as bladder or bowel leaks or pelvic pain or dysfunction. It’s almost like having a personal trainer to help you regain your pelvic strength.
In most cases, Pelvic floor therapy rehabilitation therapy takes just six to eight visits to see significant improvement. Better still, most patients can avoid surgery or medications to treat incontinence and related issues. Best of all, you can put away those pads and start living with confidence and freedom.
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.
Pelvic floor therapy for women
As many as one in three women suffer from bladder leaks or a sudden urge to go, otherwise known as incontinence.
Our therapy treats:
- Pelvic floor weakness following childbirth, which is a leading cause of incontinence
- Damage due to athletic activities
- Sexual dysfunction and vaginal pain
- Bladder and fecal leaks due to aging or disability
Pelvic floor therapy for men
Incontinence among men is common, often caused by having a prostatectomy or other prostate issues. Diabetes and nerve damage can also lead to muscle weakness, as can strenuous athletic activity.
Our therapy treats:
- Urine leaks when coughing or sneezing, loss of bladder control after a sudden urge to urinate, or constant dribbling
- Fecal incontinence
- Muscle control weakness related to aging
Pelvic floor therapy has proven effective for both men and women, who appreciate the ability to take back control and improve their quality of life.
Therapy: Treatment is given in a private, relaxing environment by a trained, caring clinician. Using FDA-approved technology designed to aid pelvic floor muscle training, a nurse conducts a simple procedure at each visit that tests and stimulates the pelvic muscles. Patients receive an exercise prescription after each visit to continue therapy to strengthen muscles at home. Even people who have limited mobility can benefit from Pelvic floor therapy.
Education: Our nurses provide guidance on how to achieve optimal pelvic health through:
- exercise to help you strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor
- dietary guidance to help you avoid foods that may aggravate bladder function.
You may think that occasional or even frequent urinary or fecal leaks are something you just have to cope with, but you shouldn’t have to live that way. Left untreated, pelvic floor disorders can cause serious health issues, including, urinary tract infections, pelvic organ prolapse, depression, and more. In fact, urinary incontinence is one of the top reasons why people are admitted to nursing homes. Don’t be afraid to seek help from Consortia Health.
Pelvic floor therapy has proven effective in minimizing symptoms for 95 percent of people with pelvic floor issues, including:
- New mothers whose pelvic muscles have been affected by childbirth
- Athletes with pelvic weakness due to running and high-impact sports
- Women and men who are suffering from incontinence, pelvic pain or sexual dysfunction
- Elderly people who have lost pelvic muscle control or who have limited mobility
- Individuals who suffer from an overactive bladder, or the sudden, strong urge to urinate
All you have to do is ask for help. The first step to better pelvic control is to talk to your doctor about incontinence, and ask about Consortia Health.
