Atrium Medical Center Introduces Treatment for Pelvic Floor Disorders
Middletown, Ohio, January 14—Atrium Medical Center now offers specialized physical therapy to relieve the symptoms of pelvic floor disorders, such as pelvic pain and problems with bladder and bowel control, in men and women. Treatment also can improve pelvic floor issues related to pregnancy and menopause in women, and prostatitis and post-prostate-surgery issues in men.
“By adding this new treatment option for people living with incontinence and pelvic pain, Atrium extends our services that improve quality of life in a meaningful way for our patients,” says Carol Turner, president and CEO of Atrium Medical Center. “Our new treatments for pelvic floor disorders support Atrium’s goal of helping our patients enjoy the healthiest lives possible.”
“Studies show that women with pelvic floor disorders may not seek treatment from their medical provider for up to eight years because they’re so embarrassed,” says Physical Therapist Margo Cox, PT, OCS, who provides non-surgical treatment for pelvic floor disorders at Atrium. “Now both men and women can benefit from specialized physical therapy, personalized treatments and education to improve their condition and their lives.”
Patients may gain relief from treatment if they have problems with bladder and bowel control; pelvic floor pain and tension; prostatitis, post-prostatectomy and pudendal nerve issues in men; pelvic organ prolapse, when the organs of the pelvis fall out of place; effects of perimenopause and menopause; and issues during pregnancy and after delivery.
Atrium offers treatment for pelvic floor disorders at the Wilbur and Mary Jean Cohen Women’s Center in the Professional Building at Atrium. To learn more or schedule an appointment, call (513) 420-5013 or visit www.AtriumMedCenter.org/PelvicFloor.
