Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Pelvic floor disorders can lead to a variety of complications and issues due to the improper functioning of the muscles and ligaments in the pelvic region. In cases of pelvic floor dysfunctions, the tissues surrounding the pelvic organs may exhibit decreased or increased sensitivity, resulting in pelvic pain. However, the root cause of chronic pelvic pain, which typically occurs in the lower abdomen, can often be challenging to identify. Nevertheless, sports rehabilitation, physiotherapy, and foot clinics can be essential in the treatment of pelvic floor disorders.
Millions of women in North America are affected by pelvic floor dysfunction. However, for most of them, the disease is not identified and therefore, remains untreated.
According to statistics,1 in every 4 Canadian women suffers from some type of pelvic floor disorder such as urinary problems, constipation and pain with bowel movement, pressure or pain in the vagina or rectum, pelvic floor muscle spasm, pelvic floor organ prolapse, and urinary stress incontinence.
Pelvic floor disorders can considerably affect the quality of life, and can significantly decrease an individual’s overall confidence.
Our pelvic floor therapist in North York specializes in designing rehabilitation regimens for treating pelvic floor dysfunctions and successfully addressing problems associated with disorders of the pelvic floor region.
