Pelvic Disorders

Pelvic floor disorders

The pelvic floor is a sling of muscles stretching from the lower part of the abdomen in front to the tailbone in the back. These muscles support the bladder, the descending colon and the genital and rectal area. They stabilize connecting joints, assist in urinary and bowel continence, are involved in sexual performance and orgasm, and help circulate blood and other fluids in the pelvic region.

Pelvic floor muscles can be weakened in many ways, including childbirth, obesity, chronic coughing, heavy lifting, high impact exercise, age, or the straining of chronic constipation. Compromised pelvic muscles can be involved in many disorders and conditions including:

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS)

Pelvic Floor Muscle Hypertonia

Endometriosis and the Inflammatory Cascade

Postpartum Pelvic Pain

Pudendal Neuralgia

Pain During Intercourse

Central Sensitization of the Nervous System

Pain with Bowel Movement

Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder
