Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

Support for strengthening pelvic muscles

Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation at Winchester Hospital

Incontinence, also called stress or urge incontinence, is caused by weak pelvic floor muscles. This condition leads to a loss of bladder control. Incontinence can feel embarrassing, especially when a simply cough, laugh or sneeze triggers an episode.

Our experts can help you regain control of your body. Our therapists specialize in a form of therapy called pelvic floor rehabilitation, which can improve muscle strength and bladder control. In fact, an estimated 79% of people receiving pelvic floor muscle training improved enough to avoid surgery.

Comprehensive Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

You can approach pelvic floor rehabilitation in many ways. We’ll help you understand what works best for you. Our physical therapists will evaluate you and help create a personalized treatment plan. Your plan may include:

  • Pelvic floor exercises
  • Biofeedback

  • Bladder training using a bladder diary

  • Urine leaks when you laugh or sneeze.
  • You use the toilet more than every two to five hours or five to seven times per day.
