PELVIC FLOOR DYSFUNCTION -FOR MEN AND WOMEN

The pelvic floor is made up of muscles and other tissues that form a sling from the pubic bone to the tailbone. They assist in maintaining an upright posture, supporting abdominal and pelvic organs, and help to control the bladder, bowel, and sexual activity.

When these muscles become overactive, or overused, the result can be pain and decreased function in any of the areas mentioned Pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) refers to a wide range of problems that occur when the muscles of the pelvic floor are not functioning normally and are often too tight, and weak.

There are often related impairments of the sacroiliac joint, low back, coccyx, and/or hip joint, that accompany this condition, and can contribute to pain and loss of function.
