Millions of women, as well as men in this country,
are suffering silently from incontinence. They are too embarrassed to
discuss the problem, even though there are more treatment options for
urinary incontinence today than ever before. Many people learn to live
with a pelvic floor disorder and the incontinence that may result, despite
the fact they can receive relief from this debilitating condition. Women
in their 20's and men, too, can suffer from a pelvic floor disorder.
Minimally invasive surgical procedures are often used
to treat the most common type of incontinence, stress urinary incontinence.
However, there are specialized therapeutic treatments that can provide
relief from pain and manage incontinence. The Pelvic Floor Program at
Upper Chesapeake Health provide a comprehensive approach to pelvic floor
disorders. The Upper Chesapeake Health Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
Program offers a wide range of therapies which begins with an initial
thorough and one-to-one consultation with a physical therapist. Based
on the individual's needs, the therapeutic treatment sessions may include:
