Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Pelvic Pain, and Incontinence Therapy

Pelvic floor dysfunction refers to a range of conditions that affect bladder, bowel, and sexual health in men and women, such as urinary and fecal incontinence and pain with intercourse. The pelvic floor consists of muscles and tissues that are susceptible to weakness, tension, or irritation caused by pregnancy and childbirth, injury, trauma, surgery, infection, or impairment of the low back, pelvis, or hip joint.

Therapy for pelvic floor dysfunction involves individualized treatment depending on the unique needs of each patient and may involve external and internal mobilization, biofeedback, electrical stimulation, myofascial release, and exercise programs to improve strength, tone, or flexibility.
