Pelvic floor dysfunction can be caused by Weak pelvic floor muscles (HYPOTONICITY) or Tight pelvic floor muscles (HYPERTONICITY). Incontinence is NOT a normal part of aging.
Pelvic floor (PF) muscles function to support pelvic floor organs, assist in urinary and fecal continence, aid in sexual performance (orgasm), stabilize connecting joints, and act as a venous and lymphatic pump for the pelvis.
Proper strength, muscle length and coordination are required to avoid dysfunction.
