Millions of people suffer from Pelvic floor dysfunction without knowing it. What most people do not know is that both men and women suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction. Pelvic floor dysfunction occurs when there is pain around the pelvis. This area includes the muscles in the lower abdomen, perineum, and the pelvis. These muscles play a crucial role in sexual activity and in controlling bladder and bowel movements.

What is Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?

Pelvic floor dysfunction occurs when one is no longer able to relax their muscles in the pelvic area. As a result, these muscles are not functioning properly and are contracting more frequently which causes pain. Common symptoms are:

  • Constipation or straining
  • Fecal incontinence
  • Frequent need to urinate or frequent presence of leakage
  • Uncontrollable bowel movements
  • Pain during urination or intercourse
  • Pain in your low back, sacroiliac joint or coccyx

The exact cause of pelvic floor dysfunction is unknown, but some contributing factors are:

  • Aging
  • Trauma
  • Post-surgical treatment
  • Childbirth
  • Lower back or SI dysfunction
  • Postural or muscular imbalance
