Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is not a “normal” occurrence. It should completely resolve after childbirth and it’s not a normal problem of old age. Over 20 million women in the US have reported to suffer with urinary incontinence. It is estimated that another 10% never even report it. Once the cause is identified and properly treated by your physician and physical therapist 50% can be cured, 35% can experience significant improvement, and 15% made more comfortable.

Common treatments include:
  • Evaluation of a bladder diary
  • Orthopedic screen for musculoskeletal involvement
  • Pelvic floor muscle assessment of strength and function
  • Biofeedback assessment for reeducation of pelvic muscles
  • Bladder habit retraining
  • Individualized exercise program for your pelvic floor and other postural dysfunctions

Pelvic Pain Therapy in Rochester

Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is defined as any pelvic pain that continues for more than six months. CPP originates in the lower abdomen and pelvis, but it may extend downward to involve the lower legs or upward to the chest area. Pain can be intermittent or continual in duration.

Common symptoms include:
  • Low back pain/abdominal pain
  • Heavy feeling in the pelvic region
  • Radiating leg pain
  • Pain with urination and/or bowel movements
  • Bowel complaints such as constipation or diarrhea
  • Painful intercourse causing decreased sexual activity
Symptoms are frequently due to spasms and trigger points found throughout the pelvic region. Treatment of CPP or vulvodynia is very specialized. It includes:
  • Skilled manual therapy to the pelvic floor muscles as well as the fascial system of the entire body
  • Biofeedback from the pelvic floor and surrounding muscles
  • Education for long term self management of symptoms
