For far too many women, pelvic floor disorders add unnecessary stress and embarrassment to their lives. Whether caused by genetics, childbirth or age, a weakened pelvic floor can lead to urinary leakage or pain during intercourse.
If you suffer from a pelvic floor disorder, Margaret Mary’s Rehab Center has several therapists on staff who are specially trained in the treatment of urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, prolapse and significant muscle tightness. While pelvic floor disorders can develop with age, they can also be caused by childbirth, heavy lifting, obesity, sexual trauma and surgery/radiation of the pelvic floor.
