Lets face it, leaking urine can be an embarrassing problem.
Often it prevents otherwise active women from getting out and participating in the activities they enjoy. They fear being too far from the ladies' room or losing urine during exercise and activity. Pregnancy, vaginal delivery, pelvic surgery and hormonal changes all put women at a greater risk for developing urinary incontinence at some point in their adult lives.
There is no need to accept this problem as “just part of the territory.” Physical therapy for the pelvic floor is often an effective treatment option to help women regain control. The pelvic floor is a highly innervated and muscular region that supports the bladder, urethra and bowels with sling-like muscles that run from the pubic bone in the front to the base of the spine in the back. These muscles and nerves may become stretched, weakened or injured during childbirth, trauma and aging.
Pelvic floor physical therapy will help you learn to decrease your symptoms, and improve control. As a trained pelvic floor physical therapist, Rivki will focus on helping you locate the muscles that support the bladder and teach you to correctly engage and strengthen these muscles to better control your pelvic floor muscles and improve your quality of life.
