How to Add Pelvic Floor Biofeedback Therapy to Your Practice

Published on Nov 20, 2023

Pelvic floor problems are an extremely common disorder - UCLA Health estimates that one in three women will experience a pelvic floor disorder in her lifetime. That’s a large portion of your patients who may be experiencing - or will experience - symptoms like constipation, incontinence, and pain.

Treating pelvic floor problems with biofeedback therapy is an effective way of improving quality of life and patient experience. Adding it to your practice as an in-house service has numerous benefits.

What is Pelvic Floor Biofeedback Therapy?

Pelvic floor dysfunction refers to a range of conditions that affect the muscles and tissues in the pelvic area, including the anus, rectum, and bladder. Manometric biofeedback can be used as a therapeutic tool to address pelvic floor dysfunction. As a superior alternative to using EMG, manometric biofeedback provides specific and quantifiable real-time, simultaneous anal and rectal data for the pelvic floor.

It’s common for practitioners and/or patients to refer to manometric biofeedback as “pelvic floor biofeedback” or “pelvic floor therapy.” That descriptor makes it easier for patients to understand what the therapy is and what part of the body it targets.

Why Should You Add Manometric Biofeedback Therapy to Your Practice?

Manometric biofeedback therapy uses pressure sensors to gauge muscle activity and provide immediate feedback to the patient and clinician. This feedback helps the patient learn how to relax their muscles and improve their ability to empty their bowels, through pelvic floor muscle training. This therapy can be life-changing for your patients. For your practice, the benefits can be substantive as well:

  • Keep patients in-house, instead of sending them to another practitioner.

  • Improve patient experience, making them more likely to stay and recommend your services.

  • Make a huge impact on your patient’s quality of life and help them regain control over their pelvic floor muscles.

If you can offer this service in-house, you can set yourself apart from other cklinics while also increasing patient happiness.
