Medical Service Name – Pelvic Floor Disorders
Pelvic floor dysfunction is one of the most frequent female-specific disorders. According to statistics, at least one-third of all women experience pelvic floor dysfunction at some point in their lives. Pelvic floor muscle dysfunction develops as women age.
The uterus, cervix, vagina, bladder, bowel, urethra, small intestine, and rectum are all held in place by the pelvic floor, which is a network of muscles and tissues that works like a hammock. The disease arises when these pelvic muscles are strained as a result of a tear or loosening.
Pelvic floor disorders are more common in older persons, particularly women, whose bodies have degenerated and have given birth naturally.
