Q: What is pelvic floor dysfunction?This is an underactive, overactive, or non-functioning pelvic floor which results in weakened, over-stretched, non-adapting, or hypertonic pelvic floor muscles. The underactive PFM are caused by child birth (such as prolonged pushing), an increase in intra-abdominal pressure (such as constipation straining, repetitive lifting, coughing or laughing), surgery (such as removal of supportive ligaments during a hysterectomy), and aging (such as a change in hormones and muscle composition). The overactive PFM are caused by joint malalignment, habitual postural dysfunctions, childbirth trauma (episiotomy, tears, adhesions), surgical trauma, sexual abuse, pelvic inflammation/infection/disease, hemorrhoids/fistulas/fissures, and bowel and bladder disorders.
Q: What are the symptoms of an underactive pelvic floor?The symptoms are usually urinary and fecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse (i.e., heaviness in pelvis).
Q: What are the symptoms of an overactive pelvic floor?The symptoms are usually difficulty with voiding and defecation, dyspareunia (pain with intercourse), and pelvic pain.
Q: What are the different types of urinary incontinence?There are 6 types of urinary incontinence: stress urinary incontinence (SUI), urge urinary incontinence (UI), mixed urinary incontinence (MUI), overactive bladder (OAB), overflow incontinence, and functional incontinence.
