This type of treadmill is also known as an Anti-Gravity Treadmill and was originally developed by NASA. AlteredG uses unweighting technology to help reduce stress and strain on the lower body/pelvis during walking or running. In relation to pelvic health (and specifically post-partum) this allows new moms to return to running earlier while still protecting their healing pelvic floor muscles!
AlteredG can also be utilized in other patients who have joint pain or stiffness allowing them to walk or run with reduced stress on bones, joints, and muscles.
Rehabilitative Ultrasound Machine
Research has shown that motor control of the deep core muscles of the trunk/pelvis is a primary impairment in patients with low back pain (compared to strength or functional capacity). The use of ultrasound imaging to observe this motor control is a valuable tool specifically when analyzing the deep core/pelvic muscles as they are not readily observable.
Another benefit of rehabilitative ultrasound imaging is its use in post-partum patients with an abdominal separation (Diastasis Recti). Research has shown that "finger measurements" of ab separation are consistently inaccurate. Use of ultrasound imaging gives an quantitative and consistent measurement allowing PT to better guide rehabilitation after birth.
In the male pelvic population, ultrasound imaging is imperative to insure correct activation from anterior pelvic muscles---necessary in reducing incontinence after prostatectomy.
Biofeedback is a helpful tool often used in Pelvic Physical Therapy. We have 2 different biofeedback machines---including the latest from Prometheus Comany: EMYO 200 which allows you to retrain your pelvic girdle musculature utilizing an engaging "game" interface!
Modalities and Many More!
Modalities can play an important role in Pelvic Physical Therapy often providing pain relief, reducing severity of urgency symptoms, and aiding in improving pelvic floor muscle strength. Below is a list of some of the modalities we have access to at COM Physical Therapy.
