Vanita’s Rehab is Brevard County’s premier facility for treatment of embarrassing conditions. Here we treat the symptoms and teach the patient lifelong strategies to counter these problems.
Just like when we have back, shoulder, knee pain or weakness and the MD refers us to a physical therapist to resolve these issues, the conditions listed below can also be treated with therapeutic exercises, Therapeutic activities, neuromuscular reeducation, biofeedback, electrical stimulation, behavior modification and nutrition.
Many potential patients are under the impression that only Kegel exercises are taught. This is a false notion. It requires comprehensive and cohesive treatment to resolve these issues.
