Physiotherapy for pelvic floor weakness

While weakness in the pelvic floor is commonly associated with women after childbirth, it can affect men and women in all groups. The root causes of a weak pelvic floor can include injury, heavy lifting with poor technique and ongoing straining on the toilet. Aging also leads to a general weakness in the pelvic floor. How do I know if I have pelvic floor weakness? Pelvic floor weakness can result in a range of symptoms for patients from constipation to incontinence, as well as a lack of sexual pleasure.
