Mobridge Regional Hospital benefits from the services of professional Physical Therapists. The department treats outpatients and inpatients who suffer from disease and injuries which include spinal, muscle, joint and neurological conditions.
Treatments include a variety of modalities including ultrasound, electrical stimulation, therapeutic exercise (strengthening, and mobilization), heat and cold. Some of our newer services include a multi-gym, which allows for greater strength training and rehabilitation of the upper and lower body, and the Biodex Balance System, which is used for evaluation and training of balance. UV Light Treatment is also available for individuals who suffer from psoriasis and/or eczema.
The Physical Therapy Incontinence Program offers a conservative, yet effective, approach to solving your incontinence problem. Amy Cerney DPT, a specially trained physical therapist will work with you on an individual basis to help you regain bladder control. Components of the program include:
- Simple, effective exercises to help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.
- These exercises, which can be done at home, play a major role in the success of the program.
- Biofeedback (a painless technique for learning to control pelvic floor muscles).
- Education on lifestyle changes to decrease bladder irritability.
- Keeping a bladder diary to aid in re-training.
- Relaxation and breathing techniques.
Chronic pelvic pain is defined as pelvic pain lasting greater than six months in any region of the pelvic complex. This pain may be described as burning, aching or a sharp/shooting pain. Pelvic pain is often a result of weakness or imbalance of the pelvic floor muscles, which makes physical therapy a conservative treatment option prior to more aggressive measures such as surgery. Amy Cerney, DPT will examine the strength, endurance and mobility of the patient's pelvic floor muscles, as well as his or her hip and lower back areas.
Rehabilitation is directed towards the patients goals after a complete evaluation has been performed and many patients will continue independently with a home program for prevention and continued wellness.
