Pelvic Floor Dysfunction: Symptoms & Treatment
Have you been suffering from Pelvic Floor Dysfunction to no avail? If you are looking for a non-invasive solution, Holistic Vitality Center can help. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles in your pelvic area that support organs in your pelvis such as the bladder, rectum, prostate, and uterus. Your bowel and bladder movements are controlled through contracting and relaxing the pelvic muscles.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is the inability to control pelvic floor muscles. Men and women who suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction contract these muscles instead of relaxing them. This leads to incomplete bowel movements, or the inability to have a bowel movement. Although a majority of the causes are unknown, complications of vaginal childbirth and traumatic injuries to the pelvic area are contributing factors to pelvic floor dysfunction. A few of the symptoms are:
- Constipation or straining pain during bowel movements
- Constant bowel movements within a short period of time
- Painful urination or inability to completely empty bladder
- Pain in lower back that is unexplained from other causes
- Painful intercourse (women)
- Pain in pelvic region, genitals, or rectum that persists.
