Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain is often associated with the inability of the pelvic floor muscles to relax. When muscles are in a continued state of contraction, pain can result. Treatment for this condition may include:

  • Soft tissue techniques
  • TENS (transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation)
  • Ultrasound
  • Biofeedback to assist with relaxation or contraction of pelvic floor muscles

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse is a common, painful condition caused by a disruption of the support system for the bladder, rectum and/or uterus. The dropping of these organs causes lower pelvic pressure, pain, a feeling of falling out, and in more severe cases, the sensation of "sitting on a ball" can be felt. Treatment for this condition may include:

  • Correcting posture and pelvic alignment
  • Strengthening of pelvic floor muscles
  • Positioning techniques
  • Estim

We also offer warm pool therapy, which helps to:

  • decrease swelling in the legs
  • decrease pain
  • ease painful joints
  • allow the mother to gently strengthen her muscles

Osteoporosis

We provide an individualized program designed to prevent, arrest, and/or reverse the common patterns of postural changes that occur with osteopenia and osteoporosis. We can help you safely return to a full and active lifestyle without the fear of fracture. Osteoporosis treatment includes:

  • Education
  • Postural correction
  • Active bracing
  • Balance
  • Proper body mechanics
  • Progressive therapeutic exercise

Urinary Incontinence

Total Rehab Care's urinary incontinence program offers discreet and helpful remedies and therapies for otherwise embarrassing conditions. Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine. Even a few drops of urine is considered an episode of incontinence. There are two major types of urinary incontinence: stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Stress incontinence is the sudden, involuntary loss of urine because of physical stress such as coughing, laughing, jumping, running, sneezing or lifting. Urge incontinence is the overwhelming urge to urinate resulting in leaking.

Urinary incontinence results from weakness of the pelvic floor muscles. With strengthening exercises and behavior modification, you can stop leakage and go back to doing the things you used to do. Our treatments include the following:

  • Education about bladder and pelvic floor muscles
  • Techniques for bladder retraining
  • Exercises to strengthen pelvic floor muscles
  • Biofeedback, vaginal weights and/or electrical stimulation for pelvic floor strengthening
  • Dietary modifications
