Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Program

One-third of adult women are affected by at least one pelvic floor condition. Thirty-five percent of all women will suffer some degree of incontinence in their lifetime.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD) is a group of clinical conditions that include urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapsed, sensory and emptying abnormalities, sexual dysfunction and several chronic pain syndromes including vulvodynia. Pelvic floor dysfunction can affect women of all ages and is common after childbirth.

Pelvic floor strengthening is essential to restore pelvic movement dynamics. However, strengthening the pelvic floor is much more than just doing kegal exercises. The pelvic is supported by other surrounding muscles including the abdominals, gluteals, hamstrings, inner thigh muscles, and perhaps the most important one being the diaphragm.
