Don't live with discomfort - pelvic floor therapy can help

Dr. Peter Earl

When you visit your OB/GYN, you’re probably prepared for PAP tests, talks about breast health and, depending on your age, either menopause or reproductive health.

But there’s another area where your OB/GYN can help you, and women aren’t always comfortable talking about it – incontinence.

Incontinence affects women of all ages, with all types of medical histories. That’s why I provide comprehensive urological services, including bladder training and pelvic floor therapy.

Pelvic floor therapy is a non-surgical method used to treat incontinence, urgency, pelvic pain and other issues. During your appointment, I can instruct you on how to isolate and exercise your pelvic muscles so they can become stronger and more effective.

My office also has a top-of-the-line biofeedback machine, where a computer recorder allows you to immediately see your pelvic muscles in action as you complete pelvic floor exercises. The computer’s sensors can also provide small electric energy bursts, to further stimulate and strengthen your muscles.

In just six to eight sessions, I can help alleviate any problems you have with leaking, urgency or stress incontinence – without the need for surgery.
