Incontinence and Pelvic Pain Program
The Good Samaritan Hospital’s Rehabilitation Center offers treatment for urinary incontinence and pelvic pain using our specially-trained physical therapists.
Urine leakage is a sign that one has a medical problem that needs to be treated. Treatments at Good Samaritan Hospital depends on the type of incontinence patients are experiencing, such as stress incontinence, an overactive bladder, or functional incontinence.
Pain in a broad area below the abdomen is called pelvic pain. One may have it during a menstrual cycle, during intercourse, bowel movements, or whenever one is seated. It can feel like a pressure deep within the pelvic area. If the pain is severe enough to disrupt one’s day, a doctor should be consulted.
At Good Samaritan Hospital, our specific intervention may include:
Complete evaluation by a specially trained physical therapist
Manual therapy techniques
Education in behavioral modifications to assist with regaining control of your bladder
Pain management, which may include a variety of modalities
Home education programs
A physician referral is required.
