The body is your temple. It should be taken care of, respected, and rejoiced. However, when patients come to Dr. Gandhi and are experiencing problems such as pain and discomfort from the pelvic area, they may be less than thrilled with the way their body is behaving. Dr. Gandhi of Partners in Pelvic Health North Shore Urogynecology sympathizes with women who deal with a variety of pelvic problems including prolapse and incontinence. One way that patients can address these concerns without medication or surgery is with pelvic rehabilitation.
Pelvic rehabilitation is a more natural, homeopathic method used to address problems in the pelvic region. Patients can regain control of their body without the use of pharmaceuticals and invasive surgeries, and instead use physical therapy to strengthen the pelvic region and reduce concerns stemming from their bladder.
Dr. Gandhi works with many clinicians when helping patients with pelvic rehabilitation. He believes that by working with a patient’s regular physician and other professionals involved in a patient’s health and medical care, he is able to provide treatments that are more effective, with better results than just physical therapy alone. The whole body works together to function at its best, and pelvic rehabilitation works in conjunction with the way a patient’s body handles treatments and improvements.
This systematic approach to strengthening the pelvic floor muscles can provide amazing improvements to a patient’s pelvic floor dysfunction. A structured program is designed and tailored to each patient’s needs to provide thorough, effective results.
Pelvic rehabilitation is versatile and can address several conditions, including:
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Constipation and fecal incontinence
- Urinary incontinence and retention
- Overactive bladder
- Spasms of the pelvic floor muscle
- Muscle weakness and relaxation of the pelvic floor
- Postpartum muscle weakness
- Uncomfortable intercourse (dyspareunia)
If you have been struggling with any of the above conditions and have been considering pelvic rehabilitation, now is the time to contact Dr. Gandhi, of Partners in Pelvic Health North Shore Urogynecology, to learn more about this treatment and the satisfaction treatment can provide in lessening pelvic problems and improving a patient’s overall quality of life.
