A group of muscles shaped like a bowl that help to support the organs in your pelvis (bladder, uterus in females, and intestines). The pelvic floor muscles are responsible for supporting these organs, maintaining bladder and bowel continence and voiding, and enables normal sexual activity and childbirth.
How do I know if my pelvic floor muscles have a problem?
Common signs of pelvic floor problems include:
Difficulty holding in urine or stool, especially during activities such as sneezing, coughing, laughing, and running
Electromyography (EMG) biofeedback uses electrical signals to measures the amount of tension in muscles, while providing visual feedback about the internal functioning of the muscles that cannot be easily seen by the person. The visual feedback provided is in real-time and allows the patient instant feedback on their performance. With the use of electrodes on the skin surface we can also determine if other muscles are working improperly.
During the testing, the patient is able to lay comfortably while watching the computer screen and following the instructions of the therapist.
