Urinary incontinence, the unwanted leakage of urine, is common in women. Vaginal delivery and the aging process are largely to blame for the condition. Most women are told that Kegel exercises can help, but few do the exercises correctly or consistently enough to make a difference. For this reason, Women's Excellence in Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy has decided to reach out to post partum women to help them succeed in preventing urinary incontinence issues down the road.
Vaginal delivery weakens the pelvic floor. Fortunately, women of child bearing age can bounce back quickly with conservative measures to restore pelvic floor health. Kristie Wilson, MPT, physical therapist at Women's Excellence in Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy states, "At Women's Excellence in Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy, we are in a unique position to actually prevent urinary incontinence in women by taking a proactive approach, especially with new mothers who delivered vaginally." Wilson recommends beginning rehabilitation once cleared by their medical provider. "It is important to begin strengthening soon after delivery. Waiting too long increases the effort and time of getting the pelvic floor back to optimal condition."
A strong, healthy pelvic floor leads to improved sexual function resulting in a more satisfying and enjoyable sex life. Pelvic floor strengthening improves the tone of the muscles responsible for sexual pleasure. "Good pelvic floor tone adds to the sexual experience for both partners. Patients have shared with me their huband's comments that there is a noticeable improvement in muscle tone during sexual intercourse," said Wilson.
Women's Excellence in Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy offers consultations and treatment within the warm, comfortable, and discreet atomosphere of Women's Excellence in Bladder Control. Pelvic floor physical therapy is provided to women of all ages, even those who have an established medical provider outside the Women's Excellence practice. Most insurances are accepted, including state-funded insurances such as Medicaid and Medicare.
