How Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Therapy Works

Select locations within the Ivy Rehab Network can provide non-surgical approaches to rehabilitation of dysfunctions in the pelvis, including Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD).

What is PFD?

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD) is a condition that renders a person unable to control their pelvic floor muscles. PFD affects many women, especially as a result of pregnancy, delivery, trauma such as a fall or car accident, surgery, obesity, or other pelvic conditions including endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, or prolapse.

What are some of the symptoms of PFD?

Common symptoms of PFD include, but are not limited to, a feeling of pain or heaviness/pressure in the area of the lower abdomen or vagina, incontinence, leakage, or urgency. Symptoms tend to occur when upright, straining or coughing.
