As women age, they may face a range of conditions that affect their pelvic health such as pain, incontinence and other pelvic floor disorders.
At Bon Secours for Women, we understand the importance of an accurate diagnosis to determine the most appropriate treatment course. Thankfully, many women can often alleviate their symptoms through physical therapy programs, medication and surgical intervention, if needed.
From urinary tract infections and interstitial cystitis to endometriosis and irritable bowel syndrome, pelvic pain can come from one or a combination of conditions. We offer physical therapy to reduce pelvic pain by relaxing muscles and retraining muscular contraction.
Our specialists and physical therapists offer varying approaches to help women having incontinence – a type of pelvic floor disorder - depending on their symptoms. Some women may leak urine or be unable to reach the bathroom in time because they feel urgency or produce more urine than the bladder can hold.
Physical Therapy for Urinary Incontinence - Bon Secours Physical Therapy offers programs that help patients retrain pelvic floor muscles and reverse inappropriate voiding habits.
Surgical Treatments for Urinary Incontinence - When physical therapy and medication fail to provide relief, our surgical specialists offer women the latest treatment options including injections, urethral sling and colposuspension.
