What is PFD or Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?

The muscles of the pelvic floor assist us in our bowel, bladder and sexual functions. When those muscles weaken or are damaged, our ability to perform these functions are affected.

This can result in a variety of conditions and disorders from painful intercourse to incontinence, constipation, back pain and more.

Sometimes painful and often embarrassing, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction can impact us and limit us in performing even the most basic day-to-day tasks.

The good news is that in many cases PFD can be treated without surgery through physiotherapy and a return to a normal, active lifestyle is entirely within reach!

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction can present itself through a number of symptoms. These include:

  • Urinary issues, such as the frequent urge to urinate or painful urination
  • Constipation or bowel strains
  • Lower back pain
  • Pain or pressure in the pelvic region, genitals or rectum
  • Discomfort during sexual intercourse for women
