Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation May Help

Physical Therapy (PT) of the pelvic floor and surrounding muscles can improve your quality of life by eliminating or managing incontinence and other symptoms, giving you the confidence to live your life again. Pelvic floor exercises and other techniques targeted to your particular condition will help strengthen the pelvic muscles and pelvic floor, and reduce the risk (or worsening) of prolapse, incontinence, pain and other symptoms.

With a doctor's prescription, you can receive pelvic floor rehab at the Inova Physical Therapy Centers in Ashburn, Fair Oaks, Franconia-Springfield, Mount Vernon, Vienna / Tysons, and Woodbridge. Pelvic floor rehab is also available at Inova Alexandria Hospital and Inova Loudoun Hospital.
