Pelvic Floor Dysfunction


 

What is pelvic floor dysfunction?

Pelvic floor dysfunction is an abnormality in the muscles that support the PELVIS(not rectum)

Pelvic floor refers to a group of muscles that attach to the front, back, and sides of the pelvic bone and sacrum. Similar to a sling or hammock, these muscles support the organs in the pelvis, including the bladder, uterus or prostate, and rectum. They wrap around your urethra, rectum, and vagina.

Coordinated contracting and relaxing of these muscles controls bowel and bladder functions—the pelvic floor must relax to allow for urination, bowel movements, and, in women, sexual intercourse.
