Pelvic Health Care

CHI Memorial Pelvic Health Care treats women and men for urinary and fecal incontinence in a private, comfortable environment. The inability to control bladder and/or bowel function is not an inevitable part of the aging process. Millions of Americans suffer with incontinence, but women are twice as likely to suffer as men.

CHI Memorial Pelvic Health Care treats a variety of pelvic floor issues through physical therapy. Treatments are provided in a private, comfortable atmosphere by certified pelvic health physical therapists after physician assessment and referral.

  • Specific strengthening programs
  • Bladder and bowel retraining and education
  • Biofeedback
  • Electrical stimulation
