Pelvic Pain & Incontinence

We offer physical therapy to treat pelvic pain and incontinence at all of our hospital locations. Our physical therapists will design a thorough treatment program that addresses your individual needs and relieves the debilitating discomfort that, left untreated, can lead to bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunction.

Pelvic Pain Conditions We Treat

  • Improper alignment or impaired mobility of the pelvic bones and joints
  • Overactive pelvic muscles (muscle spasms)
  • Underactive pelvic muscles (muscle weakness)
  • Restrictions or impaired mobility of ligaments, tendons or connective tissues and structures

Incontinence Conditions We Treat

  • Stress incontinence - leakage of small amounts of urine when there is increased pressure on the bladder
  • Urge incontinence - leakage of medium to large amounts of urine when a person feels a sudden strong urge to urinate
  • Mixed incontinence - leakage with symptoms of both stress and urge incontinence
  • Functional incontinence - urine leakage that occurs when a person cannot get to the toilet in time

Treatments

  • Therapeutic exercise includes a variety of techniques to target and exercise the right muscles.
  • Manual therapy is used to target and contract muscles.
  • Electrical modalities stimulate the pelvic muscles to contract.
  • Ultrasound is a type of imaging test used to look at internal organs.
  • Bio feedback uses computer graphs and tones to show you the muscles you are exercising, measure your muscle strength and create your exercise program.
The one-on-one physical therapy sessions usually last 1 to 1 ½ hours. An average patient will have 4-6 visits over a 2-3 month period. Most patients are referred by their urogynecologist, urologist, OB/GYN or family practitioner.
