Reclaim control with safe, painless, non-invasive and non-surgical biofeedback and behavior modification
Incontinence is a physical disorder which can be treated and frequently cured with the right medical help. Our Incontinence Clinician will guide and support you through the six week treatment program. Incon Therapy sessions are provided discreetly and professionally at our West Springfield office in a comfortable and private treatment room.
How it works
- Incon Therapy includes a computerized system that measures and monitors pelvic floor muscle activity.
- Using this “realtime” data from the computer, patients are taught to identify the muscles involved with their particular condition.
- Depending on the problem, patients are either taught to relax or strengthen pelvic floor muscles to achieve improvement. We also have the capability to use neuromuscular stimulation passively to help strengthen weak pelvic floor muscles.
- After the initial assessment, Incon Therapy patients are prescribed specific exercises to perform at home with weekly follow-up appointments for a total of six weeks.
- Improvement is achieved as a result of enhanced muscle strength, control, and coordination in combination with behavioral, dietary, and medical therapies.
- Because Incon Therapy actively involves the patient in her own treatment, often the benefits quickly become evident and can last a lifetime if muscle maintenance exercises are performed.
Pelvic floor muscles play an important role in bladder and bowel functions. As seen in the diagram, your pelvic floor musculature is located at the base of your pelvic region, controlling your bladder, bowel, and vaginal area.
Problems can occur with pelvic floor muscles due to a number of reasons. Pregnancy, childbirth, repeated strain on the pelvic region (for example, from heavy lifting or straining during bowel movements due to constipation), excessive weight, and age all can be factors in weakened or damaged pelvic floor muscles.
Problems with pelvic muscles then can lead to urinary problems, bowel problems, and pelvic prolapse. Pelvic floor muscles can also be affected by interstitial cystitis and vulvadynia. Incon Therapy is a safe, painless, noninvasive, non-surgical approach that can be used as a primary therapy or in addition to surgical correction.
