The pelvic floor muscles comprise the base of the pelvic bowl and are critical for bowel and bladder continence. They also contribute to sexual climax as well as lumbo-pelvic stability along with the other core muscles. People with PFMD may have non-ideal bowel or bladder habits, constipation, leakage, pain with intercourse or ejaculation, low back or hip pain. It is important that a medical work-up rule out any issues that may not be related to the joints and muscles. If your physical therapist (PT) has any concerns s/he will ask that you consult your medical doctor, or if you need a referral, your PT can make a recommendation.
PFMD can present in many different ways. As specialists in motor control and movement, PT’s often categorize PFMD by whether the muscles are hypertonic (over-worked), hypotonic (under-used), or poorly coordinated in their timing or in relation to synergistic muscles. Your PT will evaluate the muscles to determine what your primary type of PFMD is.
Evaluation of the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) can be accomplished through manual palpation, Ultrasound Imaging (sonogram picture of the muscle used as a biofeedback tool), Physical therapists are interested in the pelvic floor muscle resting tone, timing, magnitude, and quality of contraction.
