Pelvic floor physiotherapy provides treatment for various conditions caused by pelvic floor dysfunction. The main reason for this dysfunction is that the pelvic floor musculature is either too weak or too tight. The pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles that are attached to the front, back and sides of the pelvic bone and sacrum. They are like a hammock or a sling to support the bladder, uterus, prostate and rectum. They also wrap around your urethra, rectum (and vagina in women). These muscles must be able to contract to maintain continence and to relax to allow for urination, bowel movements, and for women to engage in sexual intercourse.
