Partnering with Consortia Medical, Bardisa Medical Center is now offering pelvic floor testing to patients in the South Miami area for all bladder and bowel control, pelvic pain and voiding dysfunctions.
Pelvic floor testing is a simple non-surgical diagnostic test that tests the group of muscles in your pelvic area. These muscles help to support organs like the bladder, uterus, prostate and rectum. As these muscles contract and relax, the body is able to eliminate waste in bowel and bladder movements.
When the pelvic muscles cannot adequately relax and contract, the bladder, sex organs and bowels cannot void regularly and completely, resulting in pelvic floor dysfunction.
Pelvic floor testing helps identify and treat the conditions such as:
During pelvic floor testing, a small sensor is placed in the rectum, or the vagina for women, and your provider will ask that you contract certain muscles. For those who cannot contract this group of muscles, the sensor will produce a gentle tapping sensation, causing the muscles to instinctively contract.
Treatment helps to train and strengthen these muscles, granting patients more control over this muscle group, as well as their bowel and bladder movements. Treatment lasts about eight weeks, with a weekly 30 minute appointment to help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles over time.
Want to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and find relief from your bladder or bowel condition? Call Bardisa Medical Center today and schedule your appointment for pelvic floor testing.
Our treatments include eight sessions over an eight week period. The first appointment lasts an hour, with subsequent sessions lasting 30 minutes. Most insurance carriers will cover the cost of this helpful test, so don’t hesitate to schedule your pelvic floor training session.
We’re currently taking appointments for sessions each Thursday. Contact us online, or book your appointment with one of our friendly team members by calling 305-661-2002.
