Pelvic Floor Testing and Physical Therapy
Pelvic floor therapy is a method of treatment that uses physical therapy principles to provide effective reconditioning of pelvic floor muscles. The goal of pelvic floor therapy is to improve the strength and function of pelvic floor muscles in order to alleviate pain, weakness and dysfunction.
Noraxon Pelvic Floor Therapy
Using Noraxon EMG for pelvic floor biofeedback can help patients understand how to strengthen or relax their pelvic floor muscles in order to improve bowel or bladder function. Pelvic floor biofeedback is a painless process that uses EMG sensors to display muscle activity onto a computer screen. This feedback is used to help the patient gain sensitivity, and with practice, control their pelvic floor muscles. EMG Biofeedback has been shown to improve patient learning and awareness of proper pelvic floor muscle contraction, speed up progression, and improve motivation for patients to continue exercises as they observe measurable improvements. For clinicians, biofeedback provides a valuable source of objective information that can be documented along with meaningful criteria for exercise progression and modification.
