Biofeedback therapy is a technique that helps patients control and strengthen their anal and pelvic floor muscles. Electrical sensors are used to gather information that is then transmitted and displayed on a computer screen that is visible to your doctor. This information measures your muscle strength during a series of exercises that your physician and or health care specialist will direct you through. These sensors will help you discover where you need to relax or contract certain muscles to achieve the desired results. This form of therapy is noninvasive and can help the patient learn to take control of their health and body without the need for medication. It has proven successful in treating numerous conditions, including constipation, incontinence and irritable bowel syndrome.
