Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation and Biofeedback
This treatment is administered in the physician’s office, usually weekly for 4-12 weeks. It is not painful. Each session takes 15-60 minutes. It consists of sensors to detect the tension in the patient’s pelvic muscles, and those are displayed to the patient. Additionally, small electrical stimulation is applied to pelvic floor muscles to relieve pain, to teach the patient to regain control of these muscles, and to calm spasm. Patients are taught exercises and methods to continue training at home.
