THE ROLE OF PELVIC FLOOR REHABILITATION
The purpose of pelvic muscle rehabilitation is to assist the patient to recognize the sensation/control of the momentary relaxation of the sphincter/pelvic muscles. It also serves to re-train the pelvic mechanism to improve efficiency and coordination. The patient can then respond routinely in a coordinated effort to prevent the leakage of stool and urine.
These conditions can affect a person’s self esteem, quality of life, and activities for daily living. There can also be life altering complications if untreated. These are treatable conditions that can be dramatically improved, and in many situations can be cured.
