Pelvic Floor Dysfunction refers to a wide range of issues that occur when muscles of the pelvic floor are weak, tight, or there is an impairment of the sacroiliac joint, lower back, coccyx, or hip joints. Tissues surrounding the pelvic organs may have increased or decreased sensitivity or irritation resulting in pelvic pain. PFD may included any group of clinical conditions that include urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapsed, sensory and emptying abnormalities of the urinary tract, irritable bowel syndrome, sexual dysfunction and severe chronic pain syndromes, including vulvodynia.
It is estimated that at least one-third of adult women are affected by one of these issues.
The techniques I use to treat these conditions are non-invasive, and go beyond just doing ‘kegels’.
Nothing in the body works in isolation, which is why I treat ‘head to toe’. The key to treating any condition is to find the root of where it all began. When you find and treat the “cause” rather than just chasing symptoms you get more successful, long lasting results.
