Pelvic Pain & Infections Q & A
What is pelvic rehabilitation and urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is a common problem for women. Urinary incontinence affects twice as many women as men. Pregnancy, hormones, and aging affect the muscles that support bladder control.
Pelvic rehabilitation is the reversal of pregnancy, birth, and age-related changes in women’s pelvic, sexual health, and anatomy. It is one of Dr. Levy’s elite premier services.
Pelvic rehabilitation is a unique comprehensive approach to restoring pelvic vaginal tissues and muscles to improve urinary function, sexual health, and self confidence, which is affected by aging, birth, and menopause.
Common types of urinary incontinence include:
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Overactive bladder (also called urge urinary incontinence)
The team at Yakov Levy MD PC specializes in common conditions that affect women’s health, like urinary incontinence. They take an integrated and personalized approach to care and offer a pelvic rehabilitation program to help women regain control over their bladder.
What are pelvic rehabilitation treatments?
The pelvic rehabilitation program for urinary incontinence at Yakov Levy MD PC includes non-surgical and surgical options. Pelvic rehabilitation treatment options include:
Emsella is a noninvasive breakthrough treatment for urinary incontinence in women. The innovative tool induces pelvic muscle contractions to strengthen the muscle and improve bladder support and control.
The team at Yakov Levy MD PC not only uses Emsella for pelvic rehabilitation and urinary incontinence, but also to strengthen your vaginal muscles for vaginal revitalization.
FemiLift is a vaginal laser revitalization and resurfacing treatment that delivers gentle CO2 laser beams throughout the vaginal mucosal surface and induces replacement of old, disorganized collagen fibers in vaginal walls with new healthy strong collagen fibers. It also increases vascularization of vaginal walls that have been affected by aging, hormonal changes, or trauma from childbirth. Hence, it improves and restores all tissues around the vaginal walls. This leads to the resolution of urinary incontinence, the disappearance of vaginal dryness and atrophy, improved sexual peformance and feeling, and vaginal tightening. One of the cherished results of the treatment is a tremendous boost in self-confidence.
Pelvic floor exercises
To support your in-office pelvic rehabilitation, Yakov Levy MD PC also provides pelvic floor exercises for you to do at home to continue to strengthen your pelvic and bladder muscles. This may include Kegel exercises, as well as a bladder training program.
Vaginoplasty and labiaplasty
In addition to noninvasive treatments, the women’s health experts at Yakov Levy MD PC perform vaginoplasty and labiaplasty procedures to alleviate urinary incontinence. During the surgical procedure, your gynecological surgeon tightens the vaginal wall and removes excess labial tissue.
What happens during a pelvic rehabilitation and urinary incontinence appointment?
Yakov Levy MD PC takes an integrative and personalized approach to care, and you can expect a compassionate and comprehensive evaluation when you come to the office seeking help for urinary incontinence. The team understands how hard it is for many women to discuss this embarrassing problem, which is why they make it such an important service at their practice.
During the appointment, your OB/GYN asks detailed questions about your gynecological, medical, and surgical history, as well as your urinary incontinence symptoms. They also perform a physical and pelvic exam to better understand your needs and develop the most effective pelvic rehabilitation program.
