Pelvic Floor Disorder Treatment

Both men and women can experience incontinence (the involuntary loss of bladder or bowel control) or the many problems associated with it. If you suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction, you can benefit from physical therapy as part of a comprehensive approach to treating these uncomfortable and often embarrassing conditions.

Henry Ford physical therapists use their specialized training to create treatment plans specific to your condition and needs. Most care plans emphasize exercises and techniques that strengthen pelvic floor muscles and improve quality of life by decreasing pain and increasing bladder control. Additional pelvic floor dysfunction treatments may include:

  • Stretching and manual trigger point therapy
  • Biofeedback training and relaxation techniques
  • Patient education and self-management strategies
  • Bladder and bowel care education, training and re-training
  • Diet and fluid modifications
  • Electrotherapy to improve muscle tone, inhibit abnormal bladder contraction and decrease pain

Through Henry Ford's incentive to treat the patient as a whole, we can also work with you on coping strategies, lifestyle changes and overall wellness.
