2019 is the year to feel better!

Statistics may vary but consistently 25-50% of women are known to suffer from some type of pelvic floor dysfunction during their lifetime.

Of those women who have pelvic floor dysfunction, only 7-10% will seek treatment.

This is the year to ask for help and you deserve to feel better!

All you have to do is ask your physician for a prescription for physical therapy and then call 402-477-3110 to make an appointment for evaluation!

Pelvic floor dysfunction can present as:

Pelvic pain

Abdominal pain

Urinary incontinence

Fecal incontinence

Pelvic prolapse

Chronic constipation

Urinary urgency and/or frequency

Urgency of defecation

Loss of control of gas

Pain with intercourse and/or pelvic exams

Pain Symposium has been retired

Medicare Cap has been Repealed!!


Two decades of advocacy come to successful fruition, as a 2-year funding deal recently signed into law includes a full repeal of the cap on Medicare outpatient occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology services.

Medicare Cap in place for 2018…take action!

Because of inaction by Congress, the hard cap on outpatient therapy services under Medicare has been implemented. The cap, which began on January 1, 2018, includes no KX modifier exceptions and has created uncertainty for providers, patients, and their families.

Can just learning more improve your symptoms?


A recent study published in the Journal of Urology (Urology 84:321-326, 2014) found that patients with moderate to severe interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) had significant improvement after receiving only advice and support.

This study was actually first initiated to examine the effect of a certain medication on interstitial cystitis but found that 50% of the placebo patients had over 50% improvement.  The “placebo effect” was attributed to the education and support patients received regarding their diagnosis.  So, in other words, just by finding out accurate information about their disease process (and making some simple lifestyle changes), patients improved over 50%!


This study highlights the importance of accurate education and a “Standard Advice Checklist” was created to include:

1. Validate to the patient that they have IC/BPS

2. Explain IC/BPS is a chronic disease requiring long-term health care plan

3. Encouraged water hydration

4. Recommend a bowel program

5. Explain dietary restrictions

6. Discuss sexual therapy

7. Explain stress reduction

8. Discuss support resources

If you have been diagnosed with IC/BPS, don’t hesitate to ask your health care practitioner about questions you may have.  Here at Husker Rehabilitation, we may not immediately know all the answers to your questions but we will work to research information and, if needed, refer you to someone who CAN answer your questions!

The more you know the better (and NOW that has been proven through research)!
