The second edition of Pelvic Floor Re-education provides a comprehensive overview of the subject, along with other aspects of the clinical assessment and management of pelvic floor disorders.Starting with the latest theories on the anatomy, pathophysiology, and possible causes of pelvic floor damage, the importance of pelvic floor evaluation is looked at in order to determine the type of treatment required. Practical techniques of muscle assessment and investigative methodologies are reviewed and up-to-date information on anatomy and physiology is discussed. An algorithmic approach takes the reader through the options for clinical evaluation and treatment. Several re-education techniques are assessed for pelvic floor dysfunction, including isolated muscle exercise, vagina cones, biofeedback control, and electrical stimulation. This practical book is invaluable reading for all healthcare professionals working with incontinent patients, particularly urogynecologists, obstetricians, gynecologists, and physiotherapists. It also provides a comprehensive but readable source for residents and trainees interested in the scientific and clinical fundamentals of pelvic floor re-education.Table of contents 1.
