What does the Assessment/Treatment Involve?

You are here:

The initial session involves a detailed assessment, after which you will be given advice on how to re- train your bladder or bowel. It is usual to do an internal vaginal or rectal examination in order to fully assess the problem and to teach the correct activation technique of your pelvic floor muscles. If needed, the Physiotherapist will use biofeedback to help you learn the correct technique or if your muscles are very weak give electrical stimulation to help strengthen them. Gentle manual stretching techniques can also be used on tight, painful areas.
