What is Pelvic Floor Training?

Pelvic floor training is a non-surgical, painless method of retraining the pelvic floor muscles that help control bladder, bowel and sexual function. Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles will help you to actively support your bladder and bowel, reducing the likelihood of leaking. 75-90% of the patients treated attain significant improvement or are cured with this type of therapy.

Pelvic Floor Training is indicated for:

  • Urinary leaks when laughing, coughing, sneezing, or exercising
  • Overactive bladder (frequent trips to the toilet)
  • Urgency (immediate need to find a toilet) Sexual dysfunction Painful sexual intercourse Vaginal and rectal pain, spasms, and/or pressure
  • Fecal leaks
  • Pelvic Prolapse

What To Expect During Pelvic Floor Training?

Appointments are scheduled once a week, for up to 8 visits, depending on your specific condition.

Like other muscles in your body, your pelvic floor muscles will become stronger with a repetitive exercise program. Attending your therapy sessions and following the exercise recommendation from your pelvic floor trainer, will enable you to have the most successful outcome. Changes in your symptoms are usually noticed within 3-4 visits.

What To Expect At Your Visits

Your first visit will take about 1 hour. Follow-up visits usually take 30 minutes to 1 hour.

This first visit will include a consultation with the nurse. She will attain a health history, explain the therapy and answer any questions you may have. You will then participate in your first therapy session. The nurse will teach you how to isolate your pelvic floor muscle, and instruct you on how to perform the pelvic muscle exercises. Muscle training is individualized. The nurse will determine the treatment best suited for you and prescribe a course of therapy for your specific condition. The best part is that most insurance companies cover this program! Find the joy in life again!
