Biofeedback refers to techniques or equipment we may use in therapy to show how well you are doing. It is commonly used to help you better identify and connect with your pelvic floor muscles, and is a useful tool to monitor your progress with retraining your pelvic floor muscle function. Unlike electrical stimulation that ‘does the work for you’, biofeedback records ‘what you do’ and therefore encourage your own effort and motivation to improve. There are many different forms of biofeedback for example vaginal examination, the pelvic floor educator, a perineometer using pressure biofeedback, electromyography (EMG) biofeedback and real-time ultrasound imaging; all of which are available at our practice.
