Nearly 25% of women experience pelvic floor problems.
Pelvic floor problems can affect a woman's ability to sit for long periods
of time, enjoy sexual activity, travel long distances in a car
or participate in everyday tasks.

The pelvic floor supports and effects many important parts of the lower body including the vagina, bladder, rectum and uterus. When the pelvic floor becomes too weak or too tight, it can lead to further medical issues.

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence occurs when the pelvic floor muscles become too weak. This causes urine to leak out of a person involuntarily. Urinary incontinence can happen to anyone, but is most common in women who have given birth or women over 50.

People with overactive bladders feel the sudden uncontrollable urge to urinate and urinate often. One cause of this condition is weak pelvic floor muscles.
