What Is Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?
If you are having trouble relaxing and contracting your pelvic floor muscles to have a bowel movement and urinate, you may be experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction. Symptoms of this condition include chronic constipation, urine leakage, lower back pain, and pelvic pain. There are a few known causes of pelvic floor dysfunction, such as traumatic injuries to the pelvis, aging, pregnancy, being overweight, and muscle overuse from straining too hard while using the bathroom. At Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center, we offer nonsurgical treatment options for pelvic floor dysfunction. To learn more about this condition, contact our office in Kennesaw, GA, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Shenelle Wilson.
What Are Treatments for Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?
Surgery is not typically needed for pelvic floor dysfunction. Instead, treatment may include lifestyle changes, such as eating a high-fiber diet, increasing your fluid intake, and taking laxatives to ease your bowel movements. We also offer pelvic floor therapy, which is a type of physical therapy used to provide you with exercises to stretch your pelvic floor muscles and help you relax them so pain is lessened while coordination improves. Prior to starting pelvic floor therapy, we will assess your symptoms so we can come up with customized exercises that will work best for you. Types of pelvic floor therapy we may use include Kegels and biofeedback.
Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center Reviews
I met Dr. Wilson thru a referral before a prolapsed uterus that was causing me to have difficulty passing my urine. She treated me like I was family. She told me what my options were and made sure that I understood. Covid lockdowns pulled the plug on my plans and Dr. Wilson moved her practice north out of Atlanta. It took me several months to find her after Covid restrictions were lifted. She was the doctor that I trusted my body and my life with. She is warm, caring. professional individual, who just happens to be the best doctor for the job. I highly recommend her for anyone who needs help with GYN and Urology issues. She is wonderful!
Dr. Wilson is amazing great wonderful doctor she will pay attention all the your concerns and words She’s care about her patients Actually all the Georgia Urology doctors are great doctors and staff members are very friendly and helpful
She's about the most personable, nicest, caring, down to earth doctor I have ever met in any medical field. I love her to pieces. I want to invite her over for dinner. -Wanda Massey
