Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

Pelvic Floor RehabilitationPelvic floor conditions such as urinary and bowel incontinence affect millions of Americans, yet they go largely unreported—and thus untreated. At St. Luke’s, we’re passionate about helping patients treat these conditions so that they can live their lives to the fullest. Our physical therapists provide patients with advanced pelvic floor rehabilitation techniques in a comfortable, compassionate and discrete setting. We expertly combine biofeedback equipment, manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and behavioral methods for bladder and bowel retraining to help our patients achieve an improved quality of life.
