Pelvic Muscle Rehabilitation: A Standardized Protocol for Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Figure 6

Electrical stimulation. Tracing of a patient with urge urinary incontinence associated with pelvic floor spams. Electrical stimulation mode serves to desensitize muscles to graded elevation of muscle stimuli. With the baseline set to 15 mcV/mA, a baseline electromyographic pelvic floor activity is seen. As the stimulation mode increases to 30 mcV/mA, the electrical activity does not increase, as it is desensitized.
