Pelvic Floor Therapy Telehealth
Education is a key component when it comes to pelvic health. Whether you are having weakness in the pelvic floor with bladder incontinence, bowel constipation after delivery or pain and dryness with sexual activities, Telehealth allows us to ask detailed questions and talk about and come up with reliable solutions for your pelvic health issues. Because education is such a large component of pelvic floor physical therapy Telehealth is able to produce effective results with guidance via video chat and the delivery of exercises right to your home.
In a study with women who had urinary stress incontinence 64-70 % of the patients had lasting improvements up to 1-2 years after participating in their Telehealth care.
