Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS)
Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) works by indirectly (via the tibial nerve) providing electrical stimulation to the sacral nerves that are responsible for bladder, bowel and pelvic floor function.
Nearly 50 US and OUS peer reviewed publications demonstrate safety and efficacy
- Reduce urgency, urge incontinence and frequency
- Objective urodynamic data demonstrates success rate
- Significant objective and subjective improvements
- No serious side-effects
Biofeedback Pelvic muscle rehabilitation (PMR)
Biofeedback Pelvic muscle rehabilitation (PMR) is a technique that uses EMG-biofeedback to improve pelvic floor strength by helping patients learn to control/contract the proper muscle groups through increased awareness.
The goal of biofeedback is to:
- Enhance pelvic muscles’ awareness
- Promote pelvic muscles’ function and coordination
- Minimize using of accessory muscles
Electrical Stimulation Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
Electrical Stimulation Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) involves delivering a small electrical current to the pelvic floor muscles to:
- Produce a reflex muscle contraction
- Contract pelvic floor muscles
- Relax and inhibit pelvic floor muscles (as seen in urinary retention or pelvic pain therapy)
Biofeedback + Stimulation
Mixed biofeedback and stimulation protocols are highly effective to:
- Provide a passive contraction that increases awareness of pelvic floor muscle contractions in general
- Assist with identification and isolation of pelvic muscle
- Increase pelvic muscle contraction strength
- Decrease unwanted or uninhibited detrusor (bladder) muscle contraction
- Assist with normalizing pelvic muscle relaxation
