Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Causes

posted on January 2nd, 2016 under Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Many different factors can contribute to pelvic floor issues. The most common causes in women are childbirth and aging. Stress, surgery, injury, obesity, and menopause can all be contributing factors as well. Research shows that men suffer from incontinence mostly because of a swollen prostate or after prostate surgery. Diabetes, Asthma, nerve damage, infections and medications can also attribute to a weak pelvic floor in both men and women.

A lot of athletes suffer from urinary incontinence. The pelvic floor takes a lot of stress after hours of running, jumping, and other high-impact sports. When you come down from a jump, all the shock is absorbed by your joints and Pelvic Floor Muscles. This can sometimes result in urinary leakage.
