Pelvic Floor Treatments

pelvic-floor-treatmentThe pelvic floor performs three vital functions: controls urination and defecation (going to the bathroom), enhances your sexual pleasure during orgasm and supports your pelvic organs.  These muscles stretch like a hammock around all three openings: the urinary tract, vaginal opening and anus.  Just like other muscles in the body, pelvic floor muscles can atrophy or they can become stronger with training.

Doctors may suggest a high-fiber diet or medications to help soften stool.
