Incontinence Treatment at UMass Memorial Medical Center
Incontinence treatment may start with a thorough evaluation by a skilled therapist who assesses the pelvic floor. Based on the findings, your therapist may use biofeedback and/or electrical stimulation to help re-educate the pelvic muscles. A customized exercise and bladder retraining program is then designed to expedite your rehabilitation process.
