If you’re suffering from incontinence, bladder pain, urinary urgency, back pain, or pain during sex, you may be suffering from Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.
PFD is common and can affect women of any age. It can be caused by a number of issues – everything from pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, a bad fall, car accident, or even surgery.
The good news? Women’s Health Physical Therapy at React can help!
There’s no need to be embarrassed. Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is common and treatable. Stop dealing with the pain and discomfort. Get relief at React.
What is the pelvic floor?
The pelvic floor is a group of striated muscles that attach from your pubic bone to the coccyx (tailbone) and in between your ischial tuberosities (“sit bones”). It makes up the “floor” of your core, so it has an important role in:
- Support of the pelvic organs
- Closure of the urinary and anal sphincters
- Sexual function
These muscles can become dysfunctional (weak, tight, inhibited, etc.) for a variety of reasons, and if they do become dysfunctional, it can be the cause of many of the common diagnoses including:
- Urinary incontinence
- Bowel incontinence
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Pelvic pain
- Issues during pregnancy and post-partum
- Low back and/or SI joint pain
- And many more diagnoses!
All of these conditions are common, but they are not normal.
With Women’s Health Physical Therapy at React, we can restore strength to your pelvic floor and ultimately free you from the symptoms that keep you from living your best life.
