Symptoms and causes
Physiocare Nyon professionals are specialized in urological, gynecological, colo-proctological rehabilitation for women, men and children.
The perineum or pelvic floor refers to the area between the anus and the external genitalia. It is a set of muscles and tissues that supports organs such as the bladder, rectum, uterus, vagina.
The role of the perineum is to resist the pressures exerted by and on the various organs. When these pressures are too high, for example following childbirth, the muscles of the perineum are weakened. This leads to various uro-gynecologic disorders, such as urinary leakage, dysuria.
Disorders can often appear in women after pregnancy and childbirth, at menopause, after surgical procedures such as removal of the uterus or during sports. In men after prostate surgery or prostate removal.
Pelvic floor weakness or dysfunction can result in several symptoms such as urinary incontinence, back pain, lower abdomen and pelvis, prolapse, organ descent, fecal incontinence and defecation disorders, and sexual pain and dysfunction"
