Healthy pelvic floor muscles protect women from incontinence and prolapse.  Many times these muscles become weak with time or injury such as after childbirth.  Pelvic floor muscle strengthening and retraining can improve bladder and bowel control as well as decrease symptoms of prolapse such as pressure and bulging with early stages of prolapse.

Many women will try Kegel exercises but become frustrated when they either do not improve the bothersome symptoms or women feel like they are not doing them correctly.  Kegels or pelvic floor exercises are challenging to do correctly which is why Pelvic Floor Rehab can be beneficial.

Women undergo guided pelvic floor muscle retraining using a special set of sensors. During this training, women learn how to correctly use their Pelvic Floor Muscles to improve symptoms associated with various pelvic floor disorders.  

This guided pelvic floor muscle training helps women learn to use their pelvic floor muscles in a meaningful way to treat urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and early stages of pelvic organ prolapse.  It can also help reduce the risk of progression or recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse.  During this training, women learn to isolate their “Kegel” muscle and strengthen it to improve pelvic floor symptoms.
