The McLaren Central Michigan Rehabilitation Services team offers Pelvic Floor Therapy to patients with various pelvic floor disorders.
Pelvic Floor Biofeedback Therapy is a treatment intended to help patients with various types of Pelvic Floor Disorders learn to strengthen and relax their pelvic muscles in order to improve bladder function and decrease pelvic pain. Biofeedback uses electronic and mechanical instruments to accurately measure the action of the pelvic floor muscles, and provides 'feedback' information to the patient so that the patient can learn to better use the pelvic muscles.
Patients can learn to use the pelvic floor muscles to decrease the sudden urge to urinate, decrease incontinence, and lessen certain types of pelvic pain. An important part of pelvic floor biofeedback therapy is consistent exercise of the pelvic muscles at home, and biofeedback therapy can help teach proper pelvic muscle exercise techniques.
Urologist Kent Kirby, MD, works with the McLaren Central Michigan Rehab Services team by providing referrals to patients who are good candidates for pelvic floor therapy. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Kirby to see if pelvic floor therapy is right for you, call (989) 317-4762.
