Pelvic Floor Disorder

The pelvic floor is the area of the pelvis containing muscles, ligaments and connective tissue. The pelvic floor provides support for women’s internal organs such as the bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum, and plays a key role in making sure these organs function properly.

 

Symptoms

Pelvic floor disorder occurs when muscles or connective tissues in the pelvic region become weak, too tight or injured. You may experience urine or bowel leakage when these muscles are weak.

 

How physio can help

Your physiotherapist can provide non-surgical options such as biofeedback, muscle stimulation, bladder training or relaxation techniques.
