We have always believed in the best and practiced the best at Healing Hands Clinic and to add on to this, we introduce Pune’s first biofeedback machine (sphinctometer) for ODS(a form of chronic constipation), stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and pelvic floor dyssynergia.
Biofeedback is the process of gaining greater awareness of your pelvic floor muscles, their strengths, functions and at the same time it provides you with the information on the activity of your muscles with a goal of manipulating them at will.
Pelvic floor muscles are which stretch between your pubic bone and tail bone, cradling your bladder, bowel,uterus,urethera,helping you to control your urine bowel movements and also sexual functioning.
Damage to pelvic floor not only contributes to urinary incontinence but can lead to pelvic organ prolapse.In females, the muscles can be damaged in pregnancy/childbirth/hysterectomy.
Studies show that up to 50% of patients with chronic constipation have pelvic floor dysfunction or dyssynergia, this condition is characterized by impaired coordination between pelvic floor relaxation and abdominal wall motion, which is necessary for normal defecation.
Biofeedback helps the patient to modify bowel habits by restoring defecation, which normally entails propulsive forces coordinated with relaxation and as mentioned earlier, it helps in strengthing of Pelvic Floor Muscles and thus curing and preventing stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
And now, here at Healing Hands Clinic we provide you with this facility, ensuring to give you the best and continue curing with care, under the guidance of Dr Ashwin Porwal, who owns the credit of performing first STARR surgery for Obstructed Defecation Syndrome and has also performed surgeries for pelvic organ prolapse and has not looked back since then. He is also the HOD of proctology department at Poona hospital, Apollo jehangir hospital, Inamdar hospital and Ruby hall clinic.
