Men and women have different characteristics with regards to pelvic floor muscles arrangement and functions. Urinary incontinence, bowel dysfunction and sexual abnormalities related to weak pelvic floor muscles are common in both genders. However, women are more susceptible to pelvic floor muscles dysfunction because of pregnancy, labor and post-partum changes. Research shows that 50-70% of women during pregnancy experiences low back pain, difficulty in weight management, decrease in aerobic capacity.

Throughout a woman’s life cycle, specific gender differences need to be recognized for their relevance to rehabilitation. Recent research has shown repeatedly that women have specific and distinct physiological processes that extend beyond the obvious considerations of anatomy and Urinary incontinence is much more common than you might think! 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction that can cause urinary incontinence and other problems. Since this topic can be embarrassing for some patients, many cases go unreported and untreated. This is so sad as proper physiotherapy can be done to help relieve the issue discreetly and successfully!

The most common causes of pelvic floor dysfunction are hypotonicity, which is a weak pelvic floor, and hypertonicity, which is a tight pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is the group of muscles that support the organs within the pelvis. For example, in women, the uterus, bowels, and bladder are all held safely within the pelvis by the pelvic floor. Both conditions can cause incontinence. The important thing to note here, though, is that incontinence is not a normal part of aging, post-childbirth recovery, or any other lifestyle! There is help!

Some people recommend Kegel exercises, but we don’t. Usually, they aren’t done properly and cause more harm than good. In both women and men, pain, organ prolapse, and bowel issues are common symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction. For both women and men, physiotherapy can help!

The goal of physiotherapy is to strengthen the pelvic floor through lifestyle changes and controlled exercises. Our therapists will help you find routines that will help bladder retention, continence, and more satisfying sexual relationships. We may suggest some dietary changes along with some exercises to do at home, but we always work with you to help you find success!
