Pelvic floor muscle training
Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles can help urinary incontinence and treat pelvic organ prolapse.
Biofeedback is the process of gaining greater awareness of many physiological functions of one's own body, with or without using electronic or other instruments, and with a goal of being able to manipulate the body's systems at will.
Replace undesirable and unproductive actions, thoughts, and behaviors with more desirable ones, leading to better results and outcomes within your life.
Vaginal support device (pessary)
A pessary is a soft, flexible device that is placed in the vagina to help support the bladder, vagina, uterus, and/or rectum. Pessaries are made in many different shapes and sizes. A pessary is a non-surgical way to treat pelvic organ prolapse and sometimes incontinence.
When childbirth or other circumstances weaken or damage the pelvic floor, the pelvic organs, including the bladder, vagina and bowel, can be greatly impacted. Pelvic floor disorders include:
Incontinence: loss of bladder or bowel control, leakage of urine or feces. Incontinence can be more than a physical problem. It can disrupt your quality of life if it's not managed well.
Prolapse: descent or falling of either the bladder, uterus, or rectum. The drop of these pelvic organs is 0ften noted as a bulge or feeling of pressure or falling out. The bulge resulting from this pressure may be felt or seen.
Emptying disorders: difficulty urinating or moving bowels. When the bladder has a hard time emptying like it should, more urine is made than it can hold, and results in overflow incontinence.
Constipation can also be the cause or result of pelvic floor dysfunction.
Pain: discomfort in the lower back, pelvis, bladder and/or urethra. Several different bladder and pelvic floor problems can cause pain. Pain should be treated so it does not cause more health and quality of life issues.
Frequent need to void, This could be due to bladder pressure, urgency, or urge incontinence (an inability to overcome the urge to urinate, resulting in leaking).
Waking more than once a night, or going to the bathroom during the day more than every two hours indicates pelvic floor dysfunction.
