A properly functioning pelvic floor is crucial in living a normal and healthy lifestyle. The tone in pelvic floor muscle changes throughout one’s lifespan due to stress, aging and childbirth. Muscles may become too stretched/loose or too tight. Pelvic floor dysfunction affects both males and females. There are different pelvic conditions that are unique to men and women.
Pelvic floor dysfunction in women can interfere with a woman’s reproductive health and cause conditions like constipation, cystitis, frequent urinary tract infections and incontinence.
Depending upon symptoms and the level of pain, treatment options include a multidisciplinary approach with a Primary Care Provider, a Physical Therapist, an OB/GYN, a Gastroenterologist, a Pelvic Pain Anesthesiologist and a Pelvic Floor Surgeon.
