One common issue that can arise in women is pelvic floor disorder. This disorder isn’t only specific to women who give birth, but it can also happen after a hysterectomy.
The term “pelvic floor” refers to the group of muscles that support the opening of a woman’s pelvis. These muscles and their surrounding connective tissues keep pelvic organs functioning correctly by holding them in place. When these muscles or connective tissues weaken or become injured, a pelvic floor disorder can result.
Many women change their lifestyle to adapt to this disorder. But there’s good news: You don’t have to live with it any longer. Coral Gables Hospital has the resources to provide you with the help and treatment you need.
