Who is Affected by Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?

posted on January 6th, 2016 under Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Although most commonly associated with women, Pelvic Floor Disorders can actually affect men, too. It is true that Pelvic Floor Dysfunction becomes more common with age, however Pelvic Floor issues can affect just about anybody – even children and teens. Many athletes are affected by it as well.

It is difficult to get an accurate estimate of exactly how many people are affected by Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, as so many cases go unreported and untreated. Studies have shown that approximately 1 out of every 5 Americans suffer from some type of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction at some point in their life. Over 25 million Americans suffer from urinary incontinence alone.
