Pelvic Health Dysfunction

The pelvic floor is made up of muscles and other tissues that can contribute to pelvic health dysfunction when they become too tight, weak, overworked, etc. Due to the sophisticated anatomy and multiple functions of the pelvic region, the underlying cause of pelvic health dysfunction can be complex, and often the entire body must be treated as a whole.
