What Patients Can Expect   At Mid America Rehab, we have a team of experienced and caring therapists with specialized training in the treatment of pediatric and adult pelvic floor pain and dysfunction. Therapy will take place in a private room to help our patients feel comfortable during treatment. Patients can expect 45 to 60-minute sessions and a follow-up/at-home program to reinforce the progress made in therapy. Typically, you can expect about 6 to 12 sessions of physical therapy 1 to 2 times per week to improve overall sensory awareness and voluntary muscle control
of the pelvic floor.
