Groin Pain: The Low Back, Hips, and Pelvic Floor
Published on under Back Pain
Pelvic floor disorder (PFD) is a common condition that describes the inability to correctly relax and coordinate the pelvic floor muscles, which can lead to issues with urination and defecation, among other things. The pelvic floor is like a sling of muscle holding the pelvic organs. Our pelvic floor muscles contract and relax when we go to the bathroom. Losing the ability to relax the muscles can lead to the inability to defecate or urinate, and losing the ability to contract the muscles can result in incontinence.
Fortunately, once more serious causes are ruled out, it’s possible to resolve PFD using biofeedback, pelvic flood exercises, and relaxation techniques, all of which may be provided by your doctor of chiropractic or in conjunction with a related healthcare professional.
There is the possibility that issues may be present in two or even all three areas that your doctor of chiropractic will address concurrently in order to reach a satisfactory treatment outcome.
