Can Telemedicine Vitalize Electrical Stimulation in Managing Pelvic Health Conditions? Urgency and Slow Colonic Transit

Speaker: Sandra Gallagher, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Women’s Health Clinical Specialist

The evidence for electrical stimulation interventions is as strong as the evidence for many other PT interventions. Their efficacy in treating many pelvic health conditions is supported in research. Some of the conditions that benefit include: pain from dysmenorrhea, urinary and fecal urgency, constipation, urinary retention, and wound healing.  In the era of increased telemedicine, home electrical stimulation treatments can be used to enhance the outcomes and compliment the behavioral and exercise treatments that take place with telemedicine.  As in many treatment interventions the choice of parameters and patient therapist expectation will influence the success. In addition to an overview of electrical therapy intervention, this presentation will focus on: 1) the application of TENS for nocturia, urinary and fecal urgency, and giggle incontinence; 2) the use of interferential current for slow transit constipation.
