Typically, pelvic floor dysfunction is thought of as an issue that only affects women but in fact, both men and women are susceptible. Physical therapists help patients eliminate symptoms of pain and discomfort that are part of a pelvic floor dysfunction. Treatment programs are designed specifically for those experiencing symptoms like pelvic pain, pain with intercourse, perineal pain, tailbone and groin pain, urinary and fecal incontinence, and constipation. These symptoms may be a result of pregnancy and childbirth, infections, chronic low back pain, SI joint dysfunction, trauma, surgery, or generally weakened pelvic muscles, among other causes.
