Urologic Dysfunction After Menopause Other Therapy
Electrical stimulation and biofeedback techniques offered by doctors and physical therapists may help strengthen the pelvic muscles in cases of bladder control problems and prolapsed bladder.
Electrical stimulation targets muscles in the vagina and pelvic floor with a probe attached to a device that delivers painless electrical currents that contract the muscles. This can also be performed through the pudendal nerve with a probe placed outside the body.
Biofeedback uses a sensor to monitor muscle activity in the vagina and pelvic floor. Based on information provided through biofeedback, a doctor or physical therapist can recommend exercises to strengthen these muscles.
