Share

Edward Rehab physical therapists are specially trained in managing conditions of the pelvic floor in women. Our physical therapists are also trained in managing musculoskeletal conditions that occur during and after pregnancy.

Pelvic floor dysfunction can occur when weakness, tightness and poor motor control is present in the pelvic floor muscle.

Common conditions include:

  • Stress Incontinence
  • Urge Incontinence
  • Fecal Incontinence
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pregnancy

Learn more about physical therapy for incontinence and pelvic pain in women - download our brochure or visit our edward.org/urogyne.


Common symptoms are:

  • Loss of urine with coughing, laughing or sneezing
  • Loss of urine with a strong urge and the inability to reach the bathroom in time
  • Loss of a small amount of urine even after urinating


A physical therapist can evaluate your condition and develop a treatment program to improve the strength and flexibility of your pelvic floor muscles which support bladder function. This may include:

  • Bladder retraining to establish normal bladder habits
  • Biofeedback training to ensure these muscles are used properly
  • Gentle electrical stimulation to improve strength or modulate the bladder
  • Exercise instruction to improve pelvic floor function
  • Suggestions for healthy lifestyle changes to enhance proper bladder health and support
