Check Mark Icon
Always tell your treating therapist if you are having any pain or discomfort.
What is biofeedback?
Check Mark Icon
Biofeedback is an important adjunct to pelvic floor muscle exercise. It may be part of the treatment plan if you have difficulty identifying, controlling and coordinating the function of their pelvic floor muscles. Surface EMG or internal biofeedback sensors are connected to a computer that will give a very clear picture of how you are able to relax and contract muscle groups. This will help to facilitate the awareness of muscle contraction during exercise, your ability to relax and your ability to isolate certain muscles without compensating with other muscles.
What is electrical stimulation?
Check Mark Icon
Electrical stimulation can be used on the pelvic floor muscles with the intent of strengthening these muscles. It is generally chosen to retrain a specific muscle. A physical therapist would apply stimulation at selected intervals over the motor point of the muscle in order to promote muscle response.
Check Mark Icon
For stress incontinence, the cure rate could be as high as 50% and the improvement rate as high as 90%.
Check Mark Icon
This can also be used internally or by surface EMG.
When will I notice a change?
Check Mark Icon
Depending on the severity and ability to perform specific exercises properly this will vary. Some patients will show results within one week of training.
Check Mark Icon
Individuals with stress incontinence who are taught to properly contract their pelvic floor muscles before or during a cough can reduce the amount of urine loss by 98%.
Check Mark Icon
On average patients report noticing a difference within 2 weeks of beginning Physical Therapy treatment.
How often and how many times will I need to come to PT?
Check Mark Icon
This will depend on your diagnosis and objective findings from your initial evaluation.
