About Pelvic Floor Muscle Rehabilitation

What is the Pelvic Floor?

"Pelvic floor" is a general term used to describe the hammock of anatomic structures the cover the outlet of the pelvis. The bony pelvis is open at the bottom. The pelvic floor fills in this opening. It separates the internal abdomen from the outside world. The muscles, connective tissues and nerves that make of the pelvic floor are extremely important for sexual health, maintenance of fecal and urinary continence and support of organs.

Dysfunctions in the pelvic floor can result in:

1.    Pelvic Pain
2.    Painful Intercourse
3.    Urinary Incontinence/leakage
4.    Fecal Incontinence/leakage
5.    Urinary Retention
6.    Difficulty in Stool evacuation
7.    Incomplete Voiding
8.    Vaginal relaxation/loosening

What is Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation?

Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation is aimed towards increasing/improving the strength, size and function of these structures. In doing so the symptoms of dysfunction often can be managed.
