BIG NEWS: FDA Halts All Sales of Vaginal Mesh Products (Source: https://www.fda.gov)
If you are dealing with incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, clinical evidence has shown that pelvic floor physical therapy can help!
One of the contributing factors for urinary incontinence and prolapse is a weakening of the pelvic floor.
Pelvic floor physical therapists use a variety of methods to help you correct pelvic floor dysfunction. Utilizing specialized exercises and modalities can strengthen and increase coordination of the pelvic floor muscles.
Bladder retraining assists by helping you regain regular urinary cycles.
If you are dealing with complications as a result of vaginal mesh surgery (such as pain, scar tissue and painful intercourse), pelvic floor physical therapists can help with that too!
If you have any questions about pelvic floor physical therapy and how it may help you, send us a message!
