Many women experience pelvic floor dysfunction due to pregnancy and childbirth. It is also common for women who have never been pregnant to develop the same problems and it can happen at any age. It even happens in men! Pelvic floor dysfunction occurs most often after men have prostate surgery and cancer treatment.
Pelvic floor dysfunctions have many forms, such as:
- Urinary leakage
- Pelvic pain
- Chronic constipation
- Chronic incontinence
- Pain during intimacy
What is the pelvic floor?
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that attach to the bones of the pelvis. They’re curved in a bowl shape and when functioning properly, they support the pelvic organs and joints. They also form the base of the core muscles to support the entire spine.
How does it become dysfunctional?
The pelvic floor can become tight, painful, and/or weak progressively over time. Back pain, hip problems, abdominal and pelvic surgeries, weight gain, and pregnancy can all be contributing factors.
