Empowering Women’s Health: The Importance of Pelvic Rehabilitation

At Mid-Carolina OB/GYN, we understand that pelvic floor disorders can significantly impact a woman’s quality of life. That’s why we’re proud to offer pelvic rehabilitation services aimed at addressing a range of pelvic floor concerns. From overactive bladder to pelvic pain and urinary incontinence, our experienced team is dedicated to helping women regain control and improve their pelvic health.

Understanding Pelvic Rehabilitation:

Pelvic rehabilitation is a specialized therapy approach designed to address dysfunction and discomfort in the pelvic region. It encompasses a variety of techniques and modalities aimed at strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, improving bladder and bowel function, and alleviating pain and discomfort.

Conditions We Treat:

Our pelvic rehabilitation program is tailored to address a wide range of pelvic floor disorders, including:

  1. Overactive Bladder: If you frequently feel a sudden and urgent need to urinate, you may be experiencing symptoms of an overactive bladder. Our pelvic rehabilitation program includes strategies to help manage and reduce these symptoms, allowing you to regain control over your bladder function.
  2. Pelvic Pain: Chronic pelvic pain can be debilitating and affect various aspects of daily life. Our pelvic rehabilitation services incorporate targeted exercises, manual therapy techniques, and education to help alleviate pelvic pain and improve overall comfort.
  3. Urinary Incontinence: Leakage of urine, whether it’s during physical activity, coughing, or sneezing, can be embarrassing and distressing. Pelvic rehabilitation offers effective strategies to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and improve bladder control, helping to reduce or eliminate episodes of urinary incontinence.
