Welcome to the Pelvic and Sexual Health Institute
Term used to describe a bladder in which uncontrolled detrusor activity (abnormal contractions) is the suspected cause of urinary frequency (including waking to urinary), and/or urge incontinence.
A condition that stems from relaxed or incompetent anal sphincter tone which results in the loss of bowel control.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD)
there are two types of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD); low-tone PFD and high-tone PFD. Low-tone PFD refers to an inability to isolate and contract the pelvic floor musculature in the presence of weak or atrophic musculature, frequently resulting in impairment of muscle isolation, contraction and relaxation. Some resultant manifestations include, voiding dysfunction, urinary frequency, urgency and pelvic pain.
