Pelvic pain and urinary or bowel incontinence are common concerns, but there’s no reason to suffer in silence. At Alta Bates Summit, physical therapists work together to create effective treatment plans to improve your symptoms.
Individual sessions with a caring physical therapist allow you to learn personalized techniques to restore the strength and flexibility of your pelvic muscles, help with impaired sexual function, reduce chronic pelvic pain and control urinary or bowel leakage.
Our services include:
- Biofeedback to help you learn to identify and control your pelvic floor muscles.
- Bladder and bowel retraining and behavioral modification techniques.
- Bladder and pelvic floor muscle training exercises, such as Kegel exercises.
- Manual therapy.
- Vaginal dilator therapy, which can help reduce vaginal pain.
