Pelvic floor muscles are the muscles that contract and relax like any other muscle in the body. They can, therefore, be treated like other muscles. They are essential for pelvic organ support, maintaining coherence, healthy sexual function, support and lumbar stability. Pelvic floor dysfunction can be diagnosed and/or treated by physiotherapists with specialized training.
Pelvic floor dysfunction can lead to many conditions:
- urinary urgency/frequency
- pelvic organ prolaps
- painful bladder/interstitial cystitis
- pelvic pain syndrome
- painful intercourse (dyspareunia)
- pundenal nerve irritation
- post partum concerns/issues
- chronic prostatitis
- post prostatectomy; hystorectomy and other surgical issues.
