Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and Treatment

Overactive Bladder and Incontinence

Pelvic floor dysfunction is the inability to exert control over the weak pelvic floor muscles. More frequently found in women than men, there are a number of reasons for this condition, and there too are a range of treatments to remedy and manage this condition.

Understanding pelvic floor dysfunction

The pelvic floor functions as a sling, and helps to support the organs located in the pelvis such as the rectum, bladder, prostrate, and uterus. When the pelvic floor muscles are contracted and relaxed, it allows for control over bowel movements, urination, and in women, sexual intercourse.

Symptoms of certain types of pelvic floor dysfunction:

  • Problems with urination
  • Excessive urge to urinate
  • Leaking when sneezing, coughing or laughing
  • Pain in the lower back
