Your physician may recommend that you have biofeedback therapy. This painless therapy provides feedback to you and your therapist on the strength and relaxation of your pelvic floor muscles. Using images on a computer screen, you will learn to strengthen, tone and relax the pelvic floor muscles while isolating muscles such as your abdomen. You will also be given information on how to control urinary urges, avoid bladder irritants and decrease pressure on the bladder.
Why You Need Biofeedback Therapy
- You are incontinent (leak urine)
- Your bladder has dropped (prolapsed)
- You have pain in the pelvic area
- You have uncomfortable symptoms, such as the frequent need to urinate
