“No woman should leak when she coughs, sneezes or runs!”
“Specialized physiotherapy is indicated as the first line of defense for a range of pelvic floor dysfunctions. The research presented by the Crochrane Collaboration (2010) concluded that specialized training in pelvic floor rehabilitation, which specifically uses internal examination and treatment, should be considered prior to surgical consultation for symptoms of unusual urgency and mixed incontinence.”
The pelvic floor is made up of three layers of muscles that form a sling that attach the coccyx (tailbone) to the front and sides of the pelvis. These muscles also wrap around your urethra, rectum and vagina. These muscles must be able to contract to maintain continence and relax to allow for urination, bowel movements and sexual intercourse (women). Just like any other muscle in the body, they can become too tight or even weakened. Trigger points in some pelvic floor muscles can refer pain into the buttocks and back of the thigh.
