Your pelvic floor consists of muscles and other tissues that have important functions. They stabilize your core, hold in place important pelvic organs (bladder, bowel, large intestine, prostate in men, internal reproductive organs, etc.), support vaginal delivery during childbirth, and assist in essential body functions, such as going to the bathroom.
These muscles aid in continence (bladder and bowel function), as they help absorb outside pressure associated with heavy lifting, coughing, and sneezing. Pelvic floor muscles tend to weaken over time because of aging, injuries, or other issues contributing to incontinence or additional complications.
Pelvic floor dysfunction occurs when your pelvic floor muscles don’t function the way they’re designed to, which can negatively affect your ability to have a bowel movement or urinate properly. It can cause other bothersome symptoms, too. Numerous holistic treatments available at Repair Recover Restore can correct the problem.
