Bellevue, NE, United States, 2007/01/17 - Excel Physical Therapy Kelly Behney attends conference. Disorders that have excessive pelvic floor muscle activity as their primary feature are often not recognized and diagnosed properly.
However, millions of people suffer from such disorders and associated symptoms of disabling pain and disruptions in bowel and bladder control. This topic was recently highlighted at a Women’s Health Conference on the Female Pelvic Floor.
Information included pelvic floor function, dysfunction and treatment interventions for urinary incontinence. An important area highlighted was the musculoskeletal components of urogynecologic pain syndromes including levator ani syndrome, vulvodynia, and interstitial cystitis.
Kelly Behney, a Physical Therapist at Excel Physical Therapy, recently completed this course. Behney is able to demonstrate competency in manual assessment of the pelvic floor musculature. These evidenced-based treatment techniques include the utilization of multiple forms of biofeedback. Kelly is employed at the 94th & L Excel Clinic and can be reached at 402-593-7345.
Physical Therapy is the use of various forms of exercise and manual, "hands-on" techniques, often in conjunction with physical modalities such as heat, ice, ultrasound, electrical stimulation and water, designed to reduce symptoms and restore normal function and activity.
