Biofeedback and E-Stim: Pelvic Floor
May 14, 2019
Biofeedback for pelvic floor rehabilitation is a tool that can be used to improve your awareness and focus on proper pelvic floor muscle contraction and relaxation. The tool can be used with surface electrodes or an internal device to integrate visual or auditory information as well as mild electric pulses. We are well versed in this treatment strategy and do find it very helpful in many cases but is not our first and only treatment. If you had pelvic floor PT many years ago, or possibly went to an inexperienced provider, this is likely the treatment offered to you. If it was the only treatment meant to treat your symptoms, it doesn’t surprise me that you are reading this looking for more help. It is a good tool, but it is just one of many we use. It is always more complicated that one tool.
