PELVIC FLOOR DYSFUNCTION / INCONTINENCE PROGRAM
Nearly 30% of all women between the ages of 30-59 are affected by urinary incontinence due to a weakened pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that support the internal organs and help control the areas of the body that are responsible for sexual function and voiding of waste. It is not unusual for these muscles to become weak or damaged. If you have the feeling you need to go to the bathroom all of the time, leak when coughing, sneezing or exercise, or have pain with intercourse you may be experiencing signs of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.
