INFANTS OR CHILDREN
Many children suffer from bladder/bowel voiding dysfunction. In fact, 20% of all pediatric visits are for incontinence problems. The umbrella term for difficulty with bladder/bowel control in children is “dysfunctional voiding.” Moms, did you know that research shows 5 million children in the US wet their bed? This is an astonishing number, and we don’t want this to be your child! That’s why at His Therapy our physical therapist will work with you and your child to help put an end to bed wetting. Throughout treatment your child will receive education, counseling, toilet posture, positive motivation, and biofeedback- a method of allowing the child to see the EMG tracing of the pelvic floor muscle contraction and relaxation in a fun manner tailored specifically for children. Don’t let your child suffer. Research shows that pelvic floor therapy is an effective option. Do not hesitate to call us for more information, or to schedule an appointment. We would be happy to help you.
WOMEN OR MOTHERS
We provide a physical therapy program which offers relief from many different disorders including:
- Stress incontinence – urinary leakage with coughing, sneezing, laughing, or running
- Urge incontinence – sudden urge to urinate, having to rush to the restroom to prevent accidents
- Pelvic pain or dyspareunia – (pain with intercourse)
- Fecal incontinence – or urgency
- Overactive bladder or Nocturia – needing to urinate frequently, disrupting your life and/or quality of sleep
- Pre and Post natal care – for women suffering with pelvic floor issues or lower back pa
Men of all ages also suffer from urinary incontinence, urgency, bowel dysfunction and even pain. At His Therapy, therapists are trained to work with men using biofeedback, bladder retraining and postural training which allows men to achieve the control they need to be functional.
Everyone can be affected by pelvic health issues, including our adults who are older than 65. This age and older can bring on bladder or bowel incontinence, fecal impaction and constipation, urgency and frequency, pelvic pain, lower back and sacral pain, and bladder retention and other painful disorders. In this population if the mental status is intact, then most of elders can benefit from pelvic floor therapy to restore and gain more control of their lives.
