About 50% of adult women experience some kind of urinary incontinence. Women’s health can teach you to strengthen your pelvic floor using at-home exercises like Kegels. Your provider can also recommend lifestyle changes that prevent unwanted leaks, like bladder training and dietary changes.
Physical therapy can even address pain during sex or difficulty having orgasms. Minimally invasive treatments like biofeedback can strengthen your pelvic floor and encourage natural lubrication.
If you strain when having bowel movements, you’re also more likely to experience hemorrhoids and anal fissures. Therapeutic techniques, like sacroiliac joint realignment and muscle training, can help you stay regular, preventing these and other problems.
The kind of women’s rehab that will most benefit you depends on several things, among them your age, current health, and symptoms. After reviewing your medical records and a physical exam, your provider at Prosynergy PT can develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
