Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is the pelvic floor?

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles, ligaments, and tissues that form a sling-like structure at the bottom of the pelvis. It plays a crucial role in supporting the pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, and rectum, and helps to control bladder and bowel function. The pelvic floor muscles are also involved in sexual function, including maintaining erectile function in men and vaginal tone in women. The pelvic floor is an important part of the body’s core musculature, and its proper function is essential for overall health and well-being.

What does dysfunction look like?

Dysfunction of the pelvic floor, which can occur due to various reasons, can lead to a range of uncomfortable and sometimes debilitating symptoms, including:

  • pelvic pain
  • urinary leakage
  • bowel incontinence
  • pelvic organ prolapse
  • sexual dysfunction
  • constipation

Because the pelvic floor serves basically the same function and purpose in all individuals, anyone can experience pelvic floor disorder.
