There is hope for pelvic floor dysfunction

Suffering from incontinence, painful sex or other pelvic floor issues? You're not alone. Urinary incontinence affects 25 million adult Americans. Twenty-six percent of women between ages 18 and 59 have involuntary leakage, 1 of 7 American women ages 18 to 50 have pelvic pain, and 61% go without diagnoses. You don't have to live with it — we're here to help.

What is the pelvic floor? The pelvic floor is made up of layers of muscles, nerves and ligaments that form a sling from the pubic bone to the tailbone.

The pelvic floor muscles are vital to:

— supporting the pelvic organs, the urinary tract, digestive tract, reproductive organs, bladder, and prostate in men
— controlling the urinary and anal sphincters
— facilitating birth as they help the fetus to rotate forwards and navigate through the pelvic girdle.
— helping sexual function
— maintaining optimal intra-abdominal pressure


What is pelvic floor dysfunction? Pelvic floor dysfunction refers to a range of problems that occur when the muscles of the pelvic floor are weak, tight, or there is an impairment of the sacroiliac joint, lower back, coccyx and/or hip joint. The tissues surrounding the pelvic organs may have increased or decreased sensitivity and/or irritation resulting in pelvic pain. These conditions may be due to infections, pregnancy or child birth, insidious onset, poor posture from chronic low back or SI dysfunction, trauma, or as a result of surgery. 

The most common types of pelvic floor disorders include:

Urinary incontinence, or lack of bladder control
Fecal incontinence, lack of bowel control or Constipation
Pelvic organ prolapse, a condition in which the uterus, bladder and bowel may descent into the vagina
Painful Sex and Menstruation
Pain in the lower back, pelvis, genitals or rectum
—  Sciatica and tailbone pain
— Prostatitis, Prostadynia
— Pre/Post natal pain and weakness
Post surgical – Hysterectomy and Prostatectomy
