Many issues are caused by pelvic floor dysfunction!
Every gender has pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor consists of muscles, ligaments, connective tissues, and nerves. The pelvic floor supports the bladder, reproductive organs, and rectum. When those muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues are damaged, pelvic floor disorders can develop. The pelvic floor also plays a role in sphincter control and sexual function.
Symptoms of Dysfunction may include:
Urinary problems, including urgency and frequency, painful urination, incomplete bladder emptying, leakage and inability to hold.
Constipation, including straining, or painful bowel movements
Pain or pressure in the vagina or rectum
Heaviness in the pelvis or a bulge in the vagina or rectum
Muscle spasms in the pelvis
Belly bulge when standing, exercising, lifting or other other activities.
