Bethesda Outpatient Rehabilitation offers men and women a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating pelvic health problems, including urinary incontinence. Muscles of the pelvic floor help control urination and bowel movements, contribute to posture and support and are used during sexual intercourse. When these muscles are weak, leakage may occur. When these muscles are tight and cannot relax, pelvic pain may occur. Conditions we treat include:
It is important to discuss concerns about pelvic health with your doctor, as help is available for those experiencing pain or leakage.
What is pelvic therapy?
The first step is an evaluation with Bethesda’s licensed, occupational therapist trained in treating pelvic health disorders. Offing private treatment rooms in a soothing environment, we strive to provide personalized attention with discreet, compassionate care. Treatment usually lasts six to eight weeks and may include techniques such as bladder training and bowel management, core and pelvic exercises, stretching, relaxation, deep breathing, visualization, biofeedback and electrical stimulation.
Your therapist will consult with your physician regarding your treatment. Therapy may be used alone, or in conjunction with other treatments such as medication or even surgical procedures.
If you answer yes to any of the following questions, speak with your doctor about your symptoms and discuss the most appropriate treatment options.
