Do you suffer from chronic pain in the area of coccyx and pubic symphysis? Do you notice incontinence, especially after sneezing or coughing? Do you feel that you suffer sexual problems and you have not managed to identified the reason? Does prolonged sitting worsen the problem? Pelvic floor muscles are largely responsible for many of the symptoms that concern you and treatment is probably simpler than you thought!

What is pelvic floor?

To many people “pelvic floor” is an unknown term and to others it is simply another area of the human body. And yet, pelvic floor consists of an important group of muscles. These muscles form the base/foundation of the pelvis and their role is to support the pelvic organs (bladder, urethra, uterus, prostate, vagina, colon). A dysfunction of this area can lead to symptoms such as:

  • Incontinence
  • Sexual dysfunctions
  • Pain
  • Changes at the level of sensitivity in the area

Why should we take care of our pelvic floor?

Proper contraction and relaxation of the pelvic floor is of vital importance for the smooth functioning of the above organs. Imagine this group of muscles as the lower part of your trunk, which essentially holds the organs in place and regulates their proper functioning, from the level of genitals up to the level of the diaphragm! That is why its smooth operation is so important.

Are there
common symptoms?

The symptoms that may occur due to pelvic floor dysfunction are numerous and, unfortunately, they may lead to misdiagnosis, as they are often associated with other health problems. Some other possible diseases or dysfunctions that may concern you and you did not imagine that they are linked to pelvic floor are as follows:

  • Bladder problems
  • Pelvic organs prolapse
  • Vulvodynia
  • Sports injury
  • Cystocele
  • Enterocele
  • Pelvic pain
  • Dyspareunia
