This service helps patients suffering with urinary and bowel incontinence, pain in the pelvic area and pelvic floor prolapse.

How can this service help me?

  • Improve pelvic floor prolapse

Pelvic physical therapy has been shown to improve stress urinary incontinence in 97% of cases and cure it in 73% of cases

What can I expect?

Patients are seen in a comfortable, private treatment room. You can expect a physical assessment which includes an internal exam, muscular retraining, education and a progressive exercise program. Physical therapists treat most patients once a week for 6-8 weeks, depending on the specific condition.

How do I get started?

Talk to your physician about a referral to the St. Charles Outpatient Rehabilitation Center for pelvic floor physical therapy.
