Symptoms of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction may be:

  • Feelings that you can't complete a bowel movement or that you need to have several bowel movements within a short period of time
  • Constipation or straining during bowel movement
  • Frequent urination or urgency to urinate
  • Pain while urinating or having a bowel movement
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Unexplained pain in your pelvic regions, rectum, or genitals
  • Bladder or bowel leakage

Causes of these conditions may be:

  • Pregnancy or childbirth
  • Poor posture
  • Infections
  • Trauma
  • Past surgeries

Treatment Options:

  • Exercises to identify and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.
  • Relaxation techniques: Therapy and self-care techniques like yoga, exercises, and heat can help relax the pelvic floor muscles.
  • Biofeedback: A non-painful and non-surgical technique to help patients improve muscle coordination. Biofeedback training has shown improvement in up to 70% of patients in recent studies.
  • Soft tissue mobilization and myofascial release to address muscle imbalances.
  • Medication: Sometimes a low-dose muscle relaxant can help ease the pelvic floor muscles.
  • Education on diet, nutrition, and behavior changes that can help improve symptoms.
